It's wet out there....not really raining, just a heavy mist. It got up to whopping 53 degrees. When will we ever get nice weather? Yesterday wasn't to bad but I was out in the car~I think the first time all week. I went across town to Trader Joe's, filled up the car with gas (7.406 gallons =$27.25), came home and put the cold stuff T.J's away and then over to Lowes (using my birthday gift card) to get a few bedding plants. They still don't have a lot of stuff in stock...particularly there's no Lobelia. And I use a lot of that in hanging baskets. My plan for today was to be outside planting what I did get but it's too icky out there. So I moved all the plants out into an open area so they wouldn't dry up and I've been in the house all day......running the vacuum, paying some bills, cleaning out my refrigerator's freezer. Is meat from 2005 too old to eat? Well, it's in the garbage can right now. Bob has a saying that freezers are nothing the midway point between the store and the garbage can. Oh, am I glad he wasn't around earlier today when I was doing some freezer cleaning.
Many of you will remember me writing about the kidnapping and subsequent murder of little Zina Linnik back in July of 2007. She was only 12 years old when Terapon Adhahn snatched her from the alley behind her family's home the evening of July 4, 2007. Yesterday he was sentenced life without the possibility of parole for this horrible crime. He was also sentenced to 67 years to life in prison for his crimes against two other girls, including multiple counts of rape and kidnapping. Those sentences will run consecutively to his life term, so if his conviction for Zinna's death is ever overturned he'd still be looking at decades in prison. Zinna's parents are still so overcome with grief that her mother and father were unable to come to the courtroom for the sentencing. I can't even imagine.......
12 year old Zinna Linnik~ rest in peace little angel
