Way to go, old lady!!!! 🙂
When a masked robber showed up at Wolf’s Groceries in Marshfield, Wis. on Monday, he probably didn’t expect a fight from its 96-year-old owner, Margaretta Wolf. The elderly store owner—who has run the grocery for 54 years—stood her ground and refused to capitulate to the robber’s demands, despite the fact that he was holding a three-inch knife.
“I said: ‘I’m not opening up that cash register and that’s it, I’m not opening it. I said you can have all the Tootsie Rolls you want but I am not opening that cash register,'” Wolf told the Associated Press.
The would-be robber continued to order Wolf around, telling her to walk to the back of the store. Wolf refused. “I’ll press a button and I’ll have somebody here in seconds,” she recalls telling the crook.

Sad loss. Rest in peace, puppy.
Animals can become viral stars for any number of reasons: a hilariously grumpy face, an exquisite fashion sense or even just a ridiculous amount of cuteness. But Schoep, the German Shepherd mix who just died at age 20 on Wednesday, owed his internet fame to a photograph taken last summer.
The original image, captured by photographer Hannah Stonehouse Hudson, featured the dog and his owner, John Unger, sharing a peaceful moment in Lake Superior. As the Pioneer Press reports, Unger, of Bayfield, Wisc., began taking his then 19-year-old pet into the water to help soothe the dog’s joint pain from arthritis.

Hey people! 🙂 Here’s my very first Things That Take Me Away Thursday blog post, so if I haven’t been doing my daily thing, I sincerely apologize.
Last Thursday, I went to the main branch of the public library downtown, and I have been obsessed with this song from The 20/20 Experience (original version), Justin Timberlake’s latest album, from last Thursday, when I synced it into my flash drive. Ever since then, I have been so obsessed with this damn song so damn badly! The song is called Blue Ocean Floor, and this song takes me away to the beach of New York City. I love this song so much! Another thing taking me away today is the 21st birthday of a dear friend of mine, and this blog post is a shoutout to that friend in North Carolina: Happy birthday, Dillon Fields! May God give you happy years. And another thing taking me away is this group of punk rocker college kids-3 ladies and 3 gentlekitties-having the cutest time of their life at ye olde doughnut shoppe. And I am laughing at them in my head so hard till I get a comedic hangover….damn.
But anyway, I gotta go and see why this small computer is not letting me type Blue Ocean Floor by Justin Timberlake on what my favorite song is…it depends on the day. That song will be on my mind for weeks. See you tomorrow!
