Not much on this patrol. I was trying a new area, but noticed a huge presence with security after the recent crimes in Boston. As much as I tried to compensate, I didn't want to get into too much risk. I was also trying new head gear used by athletes. After that my head felt waxed. Something for future consideration thou. A huge advancement was as that I covered much more of an area as well as knowing how many roads I could travel. A huge laugh came when I saw a lady wearing a hat & scarf you would see from the granny of the old Combat Zone. As much as I tried, I had to cut it short. But facing myself under pressure & surmounting to it shows huge promise in future patrols, & shows that I have my head in the game.

As I was feeling draining I was pondering whether to grab something. Worried I would basically get unwanted attention. I went to the same stand that was near where I saved a life. I grabbed an apple and gave the man an extra dollar. He kept calling me sir & I replied, "I am no sir, you are more sir than I. Call me friend." The apple was the best apple I ever had in a while. Generosity always makes food better. I was going to do a certain section, but there was a festival. Once again, I backtracked to avoid unwanted attention. I noticed a lot of new areas, as I was getting more and more acquainted As I crossed an area, I heard some Hispanic kids walking around going in my direction. They crossed the street, and IU as I saw the passing car I screamed "Vamanos!" As I crossed section & the park, I heard a town play. I passed on the back side. I heard some kids acting fresh so all I did was walked across them, No trouble. As I went back, and this is important. Always be as if the whole area is under your protection. I noticed a man with two bags. He slipped inside his jacket like Napoleon. So I made the ultimate chess match. I kept my on him, knowing any move too soon could cause bigger legal problems. I noticed his body language. I even saw him leave the bag my eyes were fixed. Getting a description and setting a plan, if he left the bag as he got off. One was jumping as I got off the final stop and tell an officer, I don't have the expertise in possible bomb disposal. He got off with the bag at another stop & I felt sure victory. Always act as if you are always on patrol.
