It appears that the warm weather will soon end! It is forecast to be ten degrees cooler tomorrow than it is today, and it is forecast to be yet another ten degrees cooler on Saturday! Shiver me timbers—as Cap'n Jack would most certainly say, had I not said it first!

Because of my real-life experience at the market—described in an earlier blog post: someone tried to steal my shopping cart in the checkout line—I dreamed that someone stole my shopping cart after I had purchased my goods and stowed them in the cart! I chased after the scofflaws in Mr. Nitro and contacted law enforcement via UConnect, reporting the license number of the vehicle I was following. The dispatcher told me to be very cautious, saying that vehicle was reported stolen and had been used in an armed bank robbery earlier in the day! Soon, the sky was filled with police and news helicopters, and a S.W.A.T. van appeared and pitted the cretins' craft. I was pronounced a hero and was interviewed by the media. I was smiling when I awakened.
