Day 172

Happy First Day of Summer. And oh yes, it's raining once again.
Didn't sleep well last night. Finally was in a deep sleep this morning and the phone rang waking me from my blissful attempt of sleep. Michael's friend from work was assaulted and robbed right there on the grounds. The place is getting more and more dangerous. M called all the appropriate places and people then hurried down there in case his friend needed anything.
Sometimes I think this town makes it too welcoming for transients. They are allowed to beg on almost every street corner. Our own newspaper did an undercover story and found they probably make more money than we do. We have several shelters that feed them in the morning and then kick them out the door for the day and don't allow them back in till evening. I see them hanging around in front of closed businesses smoking. At $9.00 a pack here in WA can someone please tell me how they can afford that? What's the answer? No clue.
