    Thank you, Anne. I suppose is just one of those life lessons thing but it is upsetting.

    L

    L: Youre Welcome. I know how upsetting it is for your daughter. It was horrible when it happend to me. I had a debt card with me when I was pickpocketed. I had to run to the bank to get it stopped. I hope she can enjoy the rest of her visit with her friend. I get nervous this time of year on the subway. I try and leave my credit cards home unless I am going to use them. I also need to get a ID. I use my passport as my ID.

    Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving everyone,
    It is in the mid 50's here in Alabama and over cast. Rain predicted for tonight & tomorrow. We are off to south AL for Thanksgiving with my family. Hoping to check the boards from my daughter's computer.

    Have a safe and blessed Thanksgiving!

    Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

    It may not be warm here in Annapolis, but I'm nice and toasty because I've just finished my workout. Mike needs to get his little booty in gear now. ;)

    Good point! Thanks, Tessa.

    The police report has been filed, bank notified and a hold put on her account so no one can use the debit card. We filled out the paperwork for the State Department and will mail that tomorrow. We have her old passport (expired) here and my husband emailed a picture of it to her so at least she'll have something with her name on it. Her friend's parent's will lend her some money for the next few days. We might drive down to Boston on Sunday to pick her up, since her bus ticket was stolen (but not the train ticket, thank God!). So all in all, I think the crisis is under good control.

    Good morning, everyone!

    We are having 29 people for Thanksgiving dinner, and it's a beautiful day here in Atlanta. This Thanksgiving is bittersweet - it's the last family bash in the house of my wife's parents, who both died this past year.

    The aroma of two turkeys - one oven-baked, and one smoked - are filling this old house, along with some healthy portions of music and laughter. I'm going to go set up some card tables. Have a great day, all!

    How traumatic.  Like Tessa said, at least she wasn't hurt.  Sounds like you have done everything that you can for the moment.  Try to enjoy the rest of your holiday. :)

    DAMN YOU, Harvey! How do you always manage to make me cry with a few short words?
    At first Ford had formed a theory to account for this strange behavior. If human beings don't keep exercising their lips, he thought, their mouths probably seize up.
    After a few months' consideration and observation he abandoned this theory in favor of a new one. If they don't keep on exercising their lips, he thought, their brains start working.

    Good morning everyone,

    Happy day after Thanksgiving. Happy black Friday for those who shop. I am just taking it easy right now, spending some time with all you lovely folks and enjoying a leisurely cup of coffee. 32 degrees here and frosty.

    45 degrees and sunny.  In a little while, the sun will warm up my car so I can sit in it with Little Gertie and be toasty warm. 

    In the meantime, I have to bundle up to take out the trash.  That's what 50 years in SoFla will do to you.

    30 here but supposed to warm up to 54 degrees.  Gonna do some walking later, good for my knee!

    Gertie--we go out to San Diego in February and laugh at all the locals wearing mackinaws when it goes below 60 degrees.  We're in, at most, long sleeved t-shirts (which is why I got a long sleeved Kindle shirt).  I'll probably be posting pics when we get out there.

    I don't wear heavy jackets until it gets really cold...I tell people it's my Minnesota forbears (Mom).

    My forebears came from Sunny Italy.  Sounds like a good excuse to me.

    42 and partly cloudy here in Maryland. Trying to convince myself that I really need to get up and exercise this morning instead of looking for new samples to download to my Kindle. ;)
