Working Labor Day was a labor of love, with absolutely no 'laboring' involved.
Working holidays are usually much fun, very productive, and oftentimes filled with breaking news.
An absolutely wonderful day, where I only had to work until 3:00 p.m.
Working this particular weekend always a blast because the air show is in town. You constantly hear the planes buzzing around up until 5:00 p.m. or so. Oftentimes, family members of co-workers come to the station to watch segments of or all of the air show from the roof.
My family, too, came down. They went upstairs a few hours before I could join them.
But before they went upstairs, my niece told us all a hilarious story. You never know where you will find news. Case in point.
My niece and her boyfriend were at Beachwood Place, of all places--one of the main department stores there. They noticed some strange activity but did not think anything of it at first. As they came back to the main department store, the flurry was still happening. They finally realized a woman shoplifter had been observed and finally pursued by police. She dodged officers quite a few times. They had her cornered. But, finally, they all stopped. My niece was not sure why all of a sudden they stopped the chase. As they got closer, they realized the female shoplifter apparently had to use the facilities but could not make it to them or was being blocked from using the proper facilities so she just let loose.
Not a pretty sight.
After she did her thing, she was taken into custody.....and believe it or not, officers were taking pictures of the 'extra evidence' she left at the scene. They put up yellow police tape, even around the 'extra evidence.'
My niece and her boyfriend could not believe their eyes.....
Which proves that news is always happening, anywhere and everywhere....and oftentimes, truth is stranger than fiction!
Off to the roof.......
