GOOFY STORIES YOU MAY HAVE MISSED THIS WEEK.....
WITH THE PASSING OF HUGO CHAVEZ, you have to wonder how long Venezuela will continue down it's current political path. The citizens of that South American country have been dealing with shortages that are making life difficult (to say the least). First they were running way short on milk, then it was butter, coffee and cornmeal. This week however, could very well be the last straw. Venezuela has a huge shortage of (drumroll please)...TOILET PAPER!!! Remember many years ago when Johnny Carson told a joke on the 'Tonight Show' about a TP shortage. People believed him and we had a countrywide run on the stuff. I don't know about you, but I could live without the butter, cornmeal and milk...but DON'T YOU TOUCH MY COFFEE OR MY TOILET PAPER.
I MENTIONED A LUCKY MAN ON TODAY'S SHOW. If you missed it, Ricardo Cerezo found a few old lottery tickets in his cookie jar, and you guessed it, one of them was worth $4.85 million dollars. What I forgot to mention on the radio, Mr. Cerezo was in forclosure and about to lose his (and the family) home. He thanked God...well I guess so!
WHILE I'M MENTIONING THE LORD, I FOUND this story interesting. Anna L. Pierre wanted to be the new mayor of North Miami Beach, so she threw her hat into the ring. Endorsements are important to any candidate, so Anna decided to go right to the top. Her political literature pointed out (in big bold letters) that she, and only she, had recieved the endorsement of Jesus Christ himself. Honest. Now, either God wasn't amused, or doesn't have the power he used to, because Ms. Pierre garnered less than 1% of the total vote (finishing dead last) in the recent primary. Only in Florida.
YOU SEE THESE STORIES EVERY ONCE IN A while, and they are always great. Rhonda Westenberger and her sister Evelyn were sound asleep in their Oklahoma home when 'Baby' (a pit bull terrier) started barking and jumping on Rhondas' bed until she awoke to find her house on fire. Not only did the dog save the sisters lives, but 'Baby' also saved the lives of five other dogs, including one that was hiding under a bed (Baby dragged it out of the house). Good dog! Now come get your treat.
FINALLY, IF YOU ARE A BASEBALL FAN, THIS should be a great weekend for going out to the old ballgame. Great weather and both of the local teams are home. The Akron Aeros host the Erie Seawolves all weekend, while the Cleveland Indians host the Seattle Mariners through Monday. PLAY BALL!
TALK TO YOU ON MONDAY MORNING AT 9am on 640 WHLO. Jim
