Good morning, everyone, it's 8am. It's a sunny morning in early June with temps around 70, and today will get to around 80. Beautiful day. I did have a lot of fun on prom night on Friday and I had a relaxing day yesterday, but it's good to be back and to be blogging. I'm only back until Wednesday, though, and then I'm starting my real blog vacation. I will be gone from this Wednesday, the 6th, until next Friday, the 15th. I will be graduating high school this Friday, the 8th, and I will be spending my time away from this blog with friends and family, and just enjoying life in late spring in general. If anyone would like to monitor crime while I'm gone, just shoot me an email and we'll sort out the details. Today, I'm monitoring 25 from now until midnight, and with that, here's crime for today.
