Good morning, everyone, it's 9am. It's a beautiful sunny morning with temps in the mid 60s. It's going to get into the mid 70s with sunshine. I'm back from my blog vacation two days early, and I'll tell you why. Because of the Puerto Rican Fest and related events that will be taking place on Saturday, I've decided to monitor the regular calls in 14 today and focus on the Puerto Rican Fest-related calls and events on Saturday. I will not be blogging tomorrow, though, as it is my 19th birthday, and I'll be celebrating it with some family. Today, I will monitor 14 from now until 9:30am, and then again from 9:45 until 10:15, then again from 10:30 until 5pm, and then again from 7:20 until 9:55, and finally from 11pm to midnight. Last week and this past weekend were some of the best days of my entire life. I had so much fun being with my family and friends and just enjoying life. Here's crime for portions of today.
