Wednesday night I was at my sponsor bar after my softball game watching the Yankees game when I over heard the bar tender asking another patron if he was ok and if "they" got his wallet. I waited until he walked outside and then asked her if he was mugged. She proceeded to tell me that he was walking home one night recently (he never walks she said, but it was a nice night) and a male black, age 16-20, 200-220 pounds as reported to the police approached him with a friend and asked him for a light. He lit the guys cigarette and as he handed it back the guy said "got any money" and reached for his pocket. He grabbed the BG's hand and the other one pulled a gun and shot him. Thankfully he is OK but it was a real eye opener, and I can not wait till they finally send my permit in the mail. I received a letter 2 weeks ago letting me know I was approved but am still waiting for my paper.
