Good morning....I've had lots of people asking questions about what took place here in Waco, Texas, on Sunday. If I've done this right, this link should take you to our local paper with lots of different links to read. (The Waco Tribune Herald).
The shopping center where Twin Peaks resides is two miles from us. 170 bikers were arrested at one million dollar bail, each. Only one guy has managed to post it. $100,000 dollars.
It's a miracle no innocents were killed but I attribute that to our excellent police force...they had been alerted in time and were ready...thank God.
The last two stores surrounding the crime scene were allowed to open yesterday morning. It's a long mall type area loaded with individual stores.
One of the stores, Beauty Brands, is where our granddaughter Samantha works but it is at the other end of the shopping center and well out of things. She was not at work at the time.
I don't know much else to tell you about it...the links to different stories should catch you up to today, if you're interested.
Thank you to my blog buddies who were worried about us...this is why I love the blogs...family.
On another and unrelated note, one of our Robinson High School Seniors shot and killed himself in the parking lot of the high school yesterday morning as school was underway....His mom worked at the daycare that our grankids, William and Samantha attended years ago. The mom had four children, the youngest is 18 months old. Her husband left her while she was still pregnant. She is a model single parent, who is absolutely crushed. Please send prayer to Marty...a hard worker and loving mother. The boy had ongoing depression for a long time...The last photo taken by her family, was mom and son, hugging, all smiles...him in his cap and gown....I just don't understand it all.....Bless his heart.
