Mom Forgets to Pick Up Snow Monkey at the Mall
When Penny dropped her son Travis off at the mall early Wednesday, they agreed to meet by the movie theater at 4:30 pm for a timely pickup. Travis arrived five minutes early. His mom was nowhere to be found.
“I offered to call his parents,” says mall security guard Tom Wakeman. “But, we couldn’t reach her, probably because snow monkeys don’t have cell phones. What was I thinking?”
She arrived closer to 7:00 pm. Travis wasn’t pleased, but at the end of the day, he arrived home safe and sound.

Hamster Cupcakes Are a Hit for Local Bakery

“They’re not for eating, of course,” says Lenore Hooley, the second-generation owner of Hooley’s Baked Goods. “That would be horrifying. We’re just trying to give these little guys a good home. People come in for babka and they just fall in love.”
