Good morning, everyone, it's 9:45am. It's a pretty sunny morning out there. So, I'm officially back from blog vacation now. Feels good to be 19 (my birthday was yesterday). I went to North Ave. Beach for my birthday. Today, I'm monitoring all three Districts/Zones in our neighborhood, for now, because of the schools letting out early for their last day. Hopefully there won't be any problems. Here's my monitoring schedule for today: from now until 10am I'll be listening to 17, then at 10, I'm switching over to 25 until 10:15, then over to 14 from then until 10:30, and then back to 17 from 10:30 to 10:45. After 10:45, I'm going to run some errands and stuff, and will return with 25 after 4pm. Here's crime for portions of today.
