Excitement in my neighborhood

A prison inmate who went to great lengths to carry out a whimsical escape plan ultimately failed when he was caught Friday night hiding in a portable toilet in Rockdale.
Cesar Sanchez, 37, escaped from a moving Illinois Department of Corrections van in Lockport several hours earlier, made his way to a grocery store despite limping and being handcuffed, then stowed himself away on the top of a semi truck’s cab and hitched a ride to Rockdale before going into hiding.
Sanchez was being taken from the Bridgeview courthouse to Stateville Correctional Center in Crest Hill when he kicked the door of a DOC van open and hopped out near 159th Street and Farrell Road in Lockport about 2:15 p.m., officials said.
About six hours later, police dogs from the Joliet Police Department and Cook County sheriff’s police tracked Sanchez to a portable toilet in the yard of the Waste Management Depot in the 1800 block of Moen Avenue in Rockdale.

The area where he escaped from the van is a few miles from my house and about half a mile from the high school.

I am soooo releived that he was captured.

Happy December

November has been such a crazy month at work. Since it is nearing the end of the year, so many patients want to get in for exams because their insurance deductibles have been met. December will be crazier, but I am going to try my best to post on my blog at least 5 times a week. I am also going to visit my blog and forum friends as often as I can.

Today I made a flower from a tutorial at  Santa's Workshop at The Flying Unicorn Forum.

I hope that you all will stop by The Flying Unicorn and join the festivities.
