Cinco de Mayo is today (Friday), and for those of you who do not speak Spanish, that means "fifth of May." It celebrates the Mexican army's May 5, 1862, victory over French forces during the Battle of Puebla -- though many mistakenly believe it commemorates Mexico's independence day.
A guy who left his guitar at the Cleveland-Hopkins Airport unwittingly set off a security scare -- they closed everything down because they saw the object as a threat. It's too bad that happened, but the question is, why would he leave a guitar behind? Would you?
I have had this conversation a thousand times with people I know. Most of them say they would not turn in a bag of money if they found one. I cannot imagine finding a bag of money. But I would turn it in so I would feel good about it. A kid in Vermont found $2,000 and he did turn it in.
Mother's Day isn't the only thing that's just around the corner -- we're hitting some of the best times of the year for sportsmen and sportswomen. Which means you'll be seeing lots of camo around town.
And all THAT is a good indicator that it's officially open season in our "Camo Queen" Mother's Day photo contest -- it's time to vote on a winner!
I love old vehicles. When I was young, I used to use my tip money to buy cars. I had a 1972 Dodge Dart Swinger, 1964 1/2 Mustang with a 289, and 1965 and '67 Mustangs -- both with 289s. My favorite was a 1964 1/2 Ford Thunderbird. She was the best.
I had a bunch of other cars, but those were my favorites that I have owned. I always wanted some of the crazy-looking European cars, but I could never afford them. What cost someone a ton of money in 1924 for an Isotta Frashini vehicle is worth its weight in gold now.
Yakima Valley Libraries always have something going on. I keep forgetting to go most of the time due to being super busy. But I am not going to miss the event that the library at 102 N. Third St. has going on tonight (April 27). Isaac Marion, who wrote "Warm Bodies," will speak at 7 p.m. The book is fantastic. I read it because my girls were about to read it and I wanted to know what the heck they were reading. I am glad I did.
Hostess Twinkies are so yummy. They are also kind of bad for you, but it is one of those treats that I must have. When Twinkies decided to shut down at one point, I was like, "Nothing will ever be that good again." Then they opened back up. I have only bought one box of Twinkies since that, but I might have to now that they're making Chocolate Cake Twinkies.
