The other night, I woke up and thought I heard Bandit bang into something - lately when he's not whining or barking, he's been knocking over his food and water dishes. So I get up and nope, it's not Bandit. And Phoebe wasn't in her dog bed. I went into the living room and she's standing in front of one of the stereo speakers, her nose between the speaker and stereo cabinet. She looked at me, stuck her nose back in. I asked her what it was (like she could tell me) and pulled the speaker out a bit, then to one side and the other. She kept looking up at me like she was trying to tell me something, then back at the speaker. I told her to get whatever it was and went back to bed.
Yesterday we decided to bake homemade biscuits in the oven. We haven't used it in quite a while because we've been grilling outside or doing stovetop cooking. Chris turned on the oven to let it heat up. Suddenly he yelled and I went in the kitchen. He said there was a mouse in the oven. …
At least it will be easy to remember their birthdays. An Arkansas couple welcomed a new baby girl into their lives Wednesday giving her the birthdate of 9-9-09. Andy and Alison Miller's newest daughter Molly Reid will come home to sister Campbell, who was born on August 8, 2008, or 8-8-08.
The coincidences don't stop there. Molly Reid has nine letters to her name, while Campbell has eight.
The Millers don't appear poised to go for a third child on 10-10-10.
Alison Miller tells Rogers, Ark. television station KHOG that she and her husband are going to take a rest.

I’m Jessica Press, the Senior Editor at Seventeen Magazine. I was wondering if WHOA is working with any young women, ages 16-21, who’d be interested in sharing their stories of online abuse with Seventeen. Can you please spread the word to any young women who may be interested that they may contact me at email@example.com ASAPI can tell them more about the article (if they’re under 18, I’ll need to send their guardian a release form), and they can decide if they’d like to be interviewed.
Please ask any interested girls to put “WHOA” in the subject, so that I know who referred them.
Thanks very much and have a great weekend, Jessica Press Senior Editor SEVENTEEN firstname.lastname@example.org
A 19-year-old woman was accused of taking $7 in change from a car parked at a police station. An arrest affidavit released Thursday shows that Sophia Paulinyce was arrested on a felony burglary charge and a misdemeanor larceny charge. She's accused of taking change from a police employee's vehicle that was parked in a secure lot at the police station last month.
The report said Paulinyce told a detective she was thirsty, noticed an unlocked car and grabbed some change for the soda machine.
She asked to write a statement to apologize before being taken to jail. There was no phone number listed for a Sophia Paulinyce of Fort Pierce.
