Mom: Here Lilly, see, this is the view from the back of the building that you never get to see.
Lilly: WOW! It looks like we live in a big city and not the suburbs
Mom: Okay, Lilly, time to go back inside our house.
Lilly: MEOW! MEOW! MEOW!
Mom: No, Lilly, honey, that's not our door. That's Carey's door and he's not home.
Lilly: MEOW! MEOW! MEOW!
Mom: Silly girl! No, this way sweetie. This is where we live
Lilly MEOW! MEOW!! MEOW!
Mom finally had to pick me up and carry me to our door. Home sweet home!

We hope you get our post card soon! And today is Pumuckl's first birthday! Happy Birthday to you!!! Me, Laila, will also be celebrating my first birthday this Sunday, April 27. Maybe we can be honorary sisters!

Oh, yeah, Mom said we had a 5.4 earthquake here in Illinois 230 miles south of Chicago at 4:37 am this morning. We were sleeping so we didn't feel it. We checked all our pictures on the wall and nothing was disturbed. Not even one that moves with the least little noise. She said she did feel and saw the couch shaking with the 5.1 one in 1987.

Mom had a great time! It was a lousy, rainy, cold day. Each policeman is assigned to a beat. John's beat is beat 9, the beat where Mom's work is. That was way cool as she knew the area very well since she's worked in it 19 years so he really filled her in on a lot. First call was a minor accident. Then helped get another accident out of a busy road that was the dividing line of our beat and another. Then they just drove around checking things out. Pretty boring. Mom kept saying she wished something exciting would happen. Then a call came in for another boring accident but we were pulled off that right away and sped with the lights and sirens on (whoopie!!!) to Woodfield Shopping Center where there was a report of a 17 year old girl who had taken 14 Triple C pills and had smoked some marijuana. We were looking for a white pick up truck with a cover and knew the license so we drove up and down the parking lot over by Macy's. Finally mall security spotted her and she wouldn't stop for them so again we put the siren and lights on to get there. Another cop tested her eyes and said she was definitely on something and then they put her in the back seat of MOM'S squad! She was so afeared the girl would talk to her but she didn't. She then got on the phone with the friend who reported it. They searched her car and purse. But they had to transport her to the ER because of her age to check her out to be sure. So we followed the ambulance to the hospital because John had to get the name of the doctor who was going to see her. Then we were able to leave and he drove Mom back to the station to get her car since her four hour ride along was over. What also was way cool was that they didn't know what Triple C was so Mom said it's probably slang for some drug and suggested John get on the internet and do a Google search and it was there! It's some sort of over the counter cough and cold tablet that causes a high when ingested in large doses. We were so proud of Mom that she thought to do this!

Uppermost in our thoughts and prayers today is Mom Laura and the fire in her apartment building yesterday. Please pray that she finds Lilly Lu, Mu Shue and Iris safe and sound. We can't imagine the horror she is going through right now not knowing if her babies are okay.

Sunday it was in the 60's so Mom opened up all the doors and windows and moved our cat tree over in front of the slider so we could get lots of fresh air. Thanks Mom!

Mom just got to work and still no Roomba. This time she started crying. She is hoping someone trapped him and will find him a good home. But what is really scary is that a raccoon has been hanging around the last few days and she's scairt they may have gotten into a fight. But the raccoons have been here all the time on and off. Poor Mom!
