Snore

Graduation party took over the block last night. The Pasadena Police cleared out a huge crowd in mere minutes. Excellent work.

I hope you have a tranquil Sunday. I'll be sleeping in.

For once the police were in the right place at the right time...:-)

What time did the party end?

Petrea Burchard said...

I don't know that the party ended, Bellis, I think it just moved. They were on our block a bit before 10:00, dispersed and came back and dispersed again. It was all over before 10:30.

Our local cops are pretty good, KBF. One thing they've made clear to us is that it's a team effort. They'll know the right place and right time if we tell them, but they don't have ESP. When I called last night I wasn't the first one and I'm not surprised. Ever seen the movie, "Ben?" Our whole street. Sudden invasion. Scurry and screech.

Hoorah for the Pasadena Police. Enjoy your lazy Sunday, Petrea.

Glad you got action. Sundays were made for sleeping in, sipping coffee and reading the paper in your PJs.

Petrea Burchard said...

I'll do that, Dive. It's sunny here, by the way.

Bayside, there are those who would argue that Sundays were made for dressing up and going to church, but I'm on your side of the PJ line.

We slept in today with no party last night...just a week of fast paced activity!!! PJ's and coffee...sounds good to me!!!

What a lovely peaceful view of a Pasadena row of shops. Have a super day! Can't wait for 'Zen Monday'.

Bellis said...

So was the graduate someone who lives in your street? Sounds like quite an eventful event. What do you mean by scurry and screech - did they have cars? And how many partiers were there?

Good of the Pasadena police to turn up and deal with it. In Cambridge, my son had his party invaded by gatecrashers who started to destroy the house and steal things. He called the police for help, but they didn't come until the next morning.

You had a busy week, Chieftess. I'm glad you get a day off.

LOL, this is actually an Altadena street--Mariposa, to be exact, at a peaceful moment. I couldn't resist.

Bellis, by "scurry and screech" I mean they invaded like the rats in the movie, "Ben." The street filled up with them, their cars, their yelling. I went to parties when I graduated from high school but we knew better than to make noise because we didn't want to get caught!
There's only one graduating kid on our block. My guess is he told a few friends to come over, and someone put the word out (on Facebook?). He was probably just as relieved as we were when the cops came.

I think this picture is slightly crooked. I don't know if I'm going to fix that or not.

TheChieftess said...

It's ok Petrea!!! You were bombarded by all those partiers...it's ok for your pic to be a bit crocked...er...
crooked!!!

Those awnings would work well on my back patio. I hope you had a restful Sunday.

Petrea Burchard said...

Chieftess, ha! More partying in the neighborhood tonight. Good thing I get to sleep in tomorrow.

Susan, I don't think there's anyone up there right now...

There were no parties on our street, and still my day was very lazy yesterday. It included my first trip to the Armstrong's on Glenarm. Probably couldn't have been any more perfect. I hope your sleep was better last night, or at least your sleep-in this morning.

No wonder you look so serious in Mondays post.

I'm glad the police responded so quickly and efficiently. It's nice to know that there's still order in this world.
Regarding church, we go on Saturday evenings, wearing jeans and flip-flops. The best of both worlds. :)

Irina said...

Wow. No people at all. Looks like heaven for me at a moment))

I caught it at a very quiet moment, Irina.
