So you know how in the past I've shown you all that the police were on my street or the fire department showed up for a call on my street and it happens at least twice a month? Well on September 10th, 2013... someone went into an apartment across the street from me and shot two people..killing one.
Usually I stay inside and snap pictures of police cars from my bedroom window but it was just after midnight and Ken told me that there were 3 Fire Trucks and several police cars down the street from our apartment...so I went outside and snapped a few pictures not knowing what had happened.
After the ambulance took someone away who had been shot, the CSI van and more police cars showed up.
Then the news vans started showing up and setting their cameras up on tripods. I knew if the news vans were showing up that something major had happened...
If you'd like to read an article I wrote about what happened on my street that night just click the link below.

Funny thing happened this morning, Ken came in and woke me up earlier than I wanted because he said there was a bug that needed saving. I kid you not.
He said he tried to flush it down the sink but the poor little guy just kept holding on and he finally felt sorry for it and said he told it, "I'll be right back I know someone who will save you." *seriously folks*
So I get up and look in the bathroom sink and sure enough there's a 1 1/2 inch beetle of some kind sitting in the sink cleaning the water from it's antennae. I put my finger down next to it, not knowing whether it bites or not *yeah I'm weird that way* and he climbed right on my hand.
I'm still in my pajamas and Ken opened the door so I could put him in the bush that's right outside our door. I stopped to make sure no one was outside, because I was in my pajamas. Ken laughed that I didn't mind picking up the bug but didn't want anyone seeing me in my pajamas. So anyway, I put the beetle on the bush and he crawled away. lol
Just call me the bug whisperer...
