Good morning, everyone, it's 3:12am. It's a clear overnight with temps in the upper 60s. Warm but beautiful. Anyway, I'm only monitoring for a little bit at this time, and then I plan to wake up by 9 or 10am to monitor all day until midnight. Tomorrow, I'll be monitoring the Gay Pride Parade in Uptown and Lakeview on my other blog. Also, I'm taking Monday off from blogging. Just need a day to myself. So that means no blogging from me on this blog tomorrow or Monday. We'll see how that goes, and we'll see how crime goes today.
