lost in a corn maze and the wife calls 911 http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44875752.../ #.TpXpyt6AqU8 A voice recording of the 911 call was made available to the media on Wednesday. The exchange: Woman: "Hi, I just called. I'm still stuck at Connors Farms. I don't see anybody. I am really scared. It's really dark and we've got a 3-week-old baby with us." Dispatcher: "Just relax. Calm down. Your husband is with you right?" Woman: "Yes, but my baby?" Dispatcher: "OK. I understand and the police officer is on the way."

So what you doing this weekend?
Any plans?

Tonight, watching the Cards win! Might sneak out and grab something for dinner first. Tomorrow dh is working; hope to bake a cherry pie, make rye bread, bake cookies and just do chores til he gets home; then we're going to see Moneyball at a local hotel theater. Sunday hoping to sneak to the zoo before the Cards clinch the MLB.... ;O)

So far, nothing planned for the weekend. And no corn mazes for me anytime soon.

Has anybody here ever gotten lost in a maze? If so, did you start feeling panicked or were you confident that eventually you'd find your way out?

I've never been to a corn maze but have been in a few other old mazes of boxwood type of shrubs. Last spring dh and I got stuck in one. We could see the pathway outside but couldn't get to it because there was wire fencing in the rows. Obviously we eventually found our way out (without calling for help) but I recall feeling a little anxious because it was pretty hot in there and I was ready to be out!

Honestly I think I would have a panic attack at being stuck in a corn maze although they do say they have a couple of bridges where you can climb & look over to get your bearings.

Oh gosh, I heard about that on the radio. I feel for them because you could tell that they really were scared. But at the same time....well....911??

We took the kids to a corn maze last year. After doing the easy side in a matter of minutes, we tried the advanced version. It did take awhile and I can see how someone could get lost but, if worse comes to worse, you pick a direction and walk straight through the corn until you hit something. The interviewed some other people on the news who said you could hear traffic from the highway next to the maze too, so you could tell where you were. Regardless, I feel for them. They were obviously very scared!

Reading your post about the shortage of male partners at ballroom dancing reminded me of a movie that I recently saw (although its was released in 2005): "Marilyn Hotchkiss Ballroom Dancing and Charm School". If you've never seen it you might enjoy it, and there's a lot more going on in the plot than just the ballroom dancing...

I hope that the email works and some additional male partners show up for your dance this weekend.

If you want to find men to dance with, and places to dance, try following an oldies band! We have a couple round here, and they're a BLAST. We were out just last weekend. There's always a bunch of couples, as well as single women AND men. And a lot of the guys who're with gals will dance with anyone that asks, cuz us old ladies tire easily! And some of those old guys can DANCE-- I've seen 70yo's tearing up the floor! And even if you don't dance -me with my plastic hip, ankle reconstruction and bad knees-not so much anymore- the music is great, and you'll sing along. I found one in your area...

That's funny that you found that link--in Nov. they are actually playing at the Elks Hall in my town, but it's a private party--the other locations are pretty far.

While driving I heard that 911 call on the radio, and at the time it sounded pretty funny--not exactly an emergency--but I suppose I might get panicky, too, in that situation. I can't wait to have grandchildren who will enjoy the pumkin patch & cornfields with me.

Hi Sue,
With all the excitement in St.Louis did you get the cherry pie made?
Did you like Moneyball?
