Just throwing some news of the week up here for you, in cased you missed it.
In the above, soon to be viral video, Mykel Lewis, an 11 year old fifth grade student at University Heights Intermediate in Jonesboro, Arkansas belted out the notes to I Will Always Love You. Mykel’s performance was so impressive, in fact, that a construction crew working inside the building stopped to cheer for him. Mykel has a dream of performing on America’s Got Talent and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. There is no doubt we will see him on both very soon.
Cruise Ship Disaster in China “The boat, carrying 456 passengers and crew members, capsized Monday night in a storm, and officials say the ship may have been hit by a tornado. Only 14 people survived, including the ship’s captain, who remains in custody.”
World Leaders Meet in Germany (Without Putin) “The G7 meeting has proved to be a magnet for left-wing protest movements, attracting anti-capitalists, environmental activists, pro-refugee groups and many more.”I’m protesting because the big financial corporations have too much influence over politics,” said 50-year-old Thomas Schmidbauer.”We could organize our economies much better for the people.”
Will American Pharoah Win the Triple Crown? “American Pharoah seeks to become the first winner of the U.S. Triple Crown in nearly four decades when he takes on seven rivals in the $1.5 million Belmont Stakes later on Saturday.”
Hero Bus Driver Saves Kidnapped 3-year Old “A man who kidnapped a 3-year-old boy from the Milpitas Public Library on Friday was arrested an hour later after an alert bus driver spotted the two on his bus, ending a terrifying ordeal, police said.”
So what’s going on in your neck of the woods this weekend? I just burned the fuck out of my dinner listening to the kid sing the Whitney Houston song TWICE while toasting a bagel. It’s beautiful out and I am just sort of out of it today. I’m just letting myself be lazy and do nothing. I should probably water the tomatoes soon, but with all the rain and more in the forecast I may skip that too.
Banjo is over being mad at me for not having anything special to add to his kibble last night. And the Cardinals are outside my window being very tentative about the burnt everything bagel in the little pan I sit on top of my hedges to attract the birds with sunflower seeds and such. It’s a good lazy day. I have no guilt over this day of doing nothing.
How bought you guys?
