Here is a couple of photos showing the pain and worry we're going through - I actually live in the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson, the one on the news all the time now. I live 1/2 mile from the shooting and protest epicenter, and 4 blocks from where looting has taken place.
We are safe, the wife and kids staying at a friend's, myself at home vigorously exercising my 2nd Amendment rights.
In all of this, Our friend Al Watson and his co-worker Lia just won the Next Great Baker reality show/contest! Al and his family go to Church with us and had to keep the results secret until the final show, tonight. I'm not even sure his wife knew the final results!
Every Tues. night at a local restaurant, Al holds court and people watch that weeks show. We normally don't go, but I took three of my girls last week for a double show and Al was more than happy to pose with them afterwards. Tonight while I was at a meeting, the final show was on and my girls called to say he won!
Here's some pics.
The burned out Quick Trip gas station always shown on the news.
And the Triumph!!!
