You should have seen the look of shock on his face when I said I wanted to become a cop, in NYC no less!(there wasn't't too many females on the job back then) He made the mistake of saying "no wife of mine...yada, yada, yada". That was it...see ya"! BTW...I didn't become a cop (vision problem), but I wound up marrying a Transit cop. I became a police dispatcher some years later. You just never know how things will turn out!

Well that was fast!! We went to an induction ceremony for my son tonight and it was over in 20 minutes. They had these giant cookies and apple juice afterwards but I was still full from Lorenzo's. So..... I have the youngest one swipe me a cookie and wrap it up for later. I plan on heating it up for 20 seconds in the microwave and chomping down while watching The Biggest Looser.
Recap: I had my daughter steal for her mother and now I will indulge in sheer goodness while watching people struggle for thier lives to loose weight!
I'm gettin nuttin for Christmas!!!

You are encouraging your kids to be theives or the thugs that are mention on here.
It all starts with the home they grow up in and how they are raised.

He's already been published once on the Mooresville Tribune & Statesville L&R websites. Next year, he'll take the next semester & will be able to compete nationally for a news segment. He's hoping my cousin comes down to visit his sister for Christmas, he wants to pick his brain. He's been a cameraman for years...MSG, NY Rangers & NY Yankees. He really wants to be involved with sports, but you never know. He's thinking about looking into finding a summer intership at one of the TV stations for the summer. I'm glad he's found his niche & he's eager to pursue his college education.

Your cousin is the perfect person for him to talk to, Rosie.

He can have a lot of fun doing his job, in broadcasting, but it is also a high-stress job with a lot of responsibility. For the right personalities, you couldn't have a better job. For most people, not so good.

Over the years, I've trained several people who worked in the stations & who thought that this would be a great, fun job. One worked out. They went back to their old jobs with a new-found respect for what we did.

I suspect the cookies were meant to be taken, so thievery isnt the real crime here. Rather, she is encouraging her child to hide things from authority, which could well lead to life as a smuggler. Of course, that in itself is not necessarily a bad thing- heck, look what it did for Glenn Frey!
