Prettty kitty! Ok, Snow Leopard. It was a pity he was too CLOSE to get a clearer pic as he looked into the sunshine... NOT!
Yesterday found us driving through downtown once again to find that the Market Square in Ohio City wasn't open on Thursdays. We still enjoyed the area and seeing the growth of the city, with plenty of new loft apartments, boutiques and coffee houses.
Bummed that the Market wasn't open we headed to NASA's Glenn Research Center, an active research facility and museum that also conducts free tours... Only to find that you have to be a US citizen to get in ~ and one of us wasn't. I did get to hear and learn a new phrase though as my friend exclaimed: "That Frosts My Drawers!" It was all I could do not to crack up.
This is as close as we got.
No matter. We were tired and needed to get back in time for me to attend the end of year banquet for the Troy Police Explorers. It was a relaxing and talkative drive home.
Joshua and Tim got home from school and rehearsal to turn around and leave for the banquet. After dinner was served and cleared the ceremony started. Lovely, eh?
Joshua's friend Ryan B., with whom he joined the Explorers group back in January.
Joshua and Ryan were recognized for their Police Duty and Community Service hours and awarded a pin.
Moms got to take home a centerpiece that is nestled in a Troy Police Officer coffee mug!
I also talked to V last night. She's ok but is going through a series of frustrations. We had a good chat.
So... from Tuesday through Friday morning, that's all the news!
