Greetings, Oh Faithful Readers!



Reports say a military coup in Turkey has failed. Apparently turkey blew the coup when the soldiers became chickens who flew the coop.

Reports say a military coup in Turkey has failed. If the military wanted to change the leadership of the country, they should have done it the way it happens in the U.S. Have an election and they have the Supreme Court change the results to their liking.

Reports say a military coup in Turkey has failed. Mostly because the military leaders realized if they won they would be left in charge of running Turkey.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has won his battle against Tom Brady over “Deflategate” after 545 days. The only people connected with the NFL who have had the fortitude to wait even longer for a victory are Raiders fans.

Former Major Leaguer Darryl Strawberry says he used to have sex with female fans in the clubhouse during games. Unfortunately that hurt his stats as the sabermetrics showed while he was scoring more and striking out less with the fans, he was striking out more and scoring less at the plate.

Takeoffs at JFK were disrupted by local turtles and their nesting ritual. The worst part is that airport officials are studying the turtles to see how some of their methods could be copied to speed up the operations at United Airlines.

Which could be a real headache, especially when Amazon and Domino’s drones are trying to deliver packages and pizzas while trying to avoid running into all the drones flown by neighborhood peeping toms.

My experience here has been pretty good, mostly because I have not done anything stupid like wearing a Raiders shirt around town. Looking forward to watching my daughter in her last day of competition at the Karate National Championships and driving back home this afternoon. It’s always good to get back home, especially when I check my e-mail and see that all of you took the time to remember to send the love!
