Sandy in Words & Pics

While we still had power I thought I'd share a few thoughts about our new favorite B*tch, Sandy!

Above was my view on the way home from work yesterday.  I bet you experienced the same kind of thing.  And the winds really hadn't kicked up yet.

 

One of the more powerful images of the day...the dangling crane in NYC, 90 stories in the air.  Hopefully, it is still there by the time you are reading this.



Another problem in NYC.  Trump's hair!  Give that man some product.



I love watching storm coverage.  TV stations insist on sending their reporters into the eye of the storm.  It's a test to see how close they can get to the storm surge without getting washed out to sea.



Here's another one.  She must be new.  Hasn't yet recieved her official CNN hat.



Greetings from Asbury Park, NJ and Springsteen's old stomping grounds, The Stone Pony.  Kind of ironic that on his 2nd album you'll find a song named "Sandy."

Pumpkin Pickin


I got to act like a kid again this weekend!  Saturday I hosted my monthly Big Brother event at Roba's Family Farm in North Abbington Township.

Here's my newest best bud Noah helping me pick out some pumpkins.



What a great place for kids!



The goats ate out of our hands and ate everything in site, including the lid to Noah's feed cup.



When was the last time you roasted marshmallows over an open fire and made S'mores?  smiley



Ronald McDonald was there to lead the kid's Halloween parade.



One of the coolest attractions:  High-powered slingshots that shoot apples hundreds of yards in the air.



Think you might have a few extra hours a month to be a Big Brother or Big Sister to a great kid like Noah?  Why not get involved and volunteer?  You get to act like a kid again AND have a positive influence on someone's life.

Pickup Fail
Cheezy pickup lines.  They never work, do they?

What about cheezy lines from Taylor Swift songs?  This guy tried it, and a few girls almost bit.

Pretty funny stuff here.  But don't try this at the Woodlands.

Why I LOVE Fall

Today had to be one of the BEST Falll days ever!  And if you need a reason to love this amazing season, take a look at some of these pics I took while out walking with our dogs.




Great colors.



 
 
Huntsville Reservoir.



Crisp.  Sunny.  Blue.  Beautiful.




The kids Sammi & Franky LOVE the smell of Fall, or it might've been deer poop!




Birch tree.



Football.  Playoff baseball.  Octoberfest beer.  And views like this.  How can you not LOVE Fall?






The colors are peaking.  Don't miss out this weekend.

And if you take any great shots of the foliage, I'd love to see them.

Happy Fall!!!

QVC Host Faints
This is the video-of-day we were just talking about.  QVC host Cassie Slane passed out on live TV Sunday AND her co-host kept selling!  That's dedication.

What's that?  You're feeling faint & dizzy?  Hang on.  We've got to sell 20 more of these Flameless Candles in the next 5 minutes.

THANKS AGAIN for making the 4th Annual BRAS ACROSS THE BRIDGE a huge success.

Each of these bras represents a $5 (or more) donation to help fight breast Cancer.




A vision in pink, ACS volunteer Russ leads the parade of bras from Kirby Park to the Market Street bridge.



Bras, bras & more bras!




My Instagram pic.




Pre-game with Lissa & I.  We never know what to do with our hands in photos!




Thank you Spartanz for supporting Bras Across the Bridge.



While we were stretching bras across the Susquehanna in Wilkes-Barre, Penn State fans were showing their support for Breast Cancer Awareness month at Beaver Stadium.  Love this pic!!!

Speeding Ticket Excuses

 

So AJ from the Backstreet Boys got pulled over and tried pulling the old "Do you know who I am?" card.  And apparently the cop DIDN'T.  How funny is that?

Do you have an excuse that actually WORKED?

Some of you did.

There's no guarantee that ANY of these excuses REALLY work! :)

Good luck.

My daughter is extremely small for her size and she sits in the backseat and if I ever get stopped she says
“Mommy I have to go potty now!”

I was pulled over after a few drinks for having only 1 headlight. Luckily I had the new bulb with me. I said "I have the new one right her officer. Do u have time to change it?" He didn't change it but I didn't get a ticket...and he friended me on fb the next day. ;-)

I got pulled over for speeding and the cop let me go because i told him i was on the verge of crapping my pants and that i was speeding to find a bathroom.

I got pulled over on Easter and the cop let me go cause he loved my daughter’s Easter dress.

My brother just tells them that he's a teacher. It worked every time he tried it. He is a teacher though.

I was on my way to try out for the Phillies, was pulled over, told the cop I was late for try outs. He said he was a big fan of the Phillies and when I made it, he wanted tickets. Gave me his card and everything and let me go. Just tell the truth.

Good morning guys I can say the government ID works! My husband and I were pulled over in Connecticut on our way back to PA my husband's license was expired because he was in the service which is okay as long as you have your military ID. The state trooper actually said to him “I don't give tickets to service members unless it's something terrible.” He said just slow down and get home safely. Have a great day guys

I can't call but 99.9 percent of the time if my husband is stopped once they see his badge he gets no ticket..he works for corrections.

My friend's brother-in-law is a state trooper. Her father keeps a picture of him in his uniform next to his license in his wallet. Any time he's gotten pulled over he made sure the officer saw the picture and he was let go

I'm a nurse and have gotten out of a speeding ticket.

i flashed my double d's

If the officer spells your name wrong on the ticket report you can get out of a ticket.

Having to pee doesn't always work, I said that once and ended up peeing myself because he took longer on purpose :(

Weaving and blamed it on a bee in the car.

This is what I say:  I just got off a 16 hour shift all I want to do is go to bed can't you cut me a break? And he did after asking me if I knew a half a dozen people that worked at the hospital.

My dad got out of ticket simply because my brother was dressed in his scout uniform.

kNOw Bullying in West Hazleton




What a GREAT way to kick off the week.  Lissa & I were live from West Hazleton Elementary/Middle School to help spread the word about their "kNOw BULLYING" program.

 


That's not a squirrel, that's the W Hazleton Wildcat.



That's our new buddy Brandon, a 7th grader that makes sure some of the younger kids don't get bullied.



A few of the awesome signs saying "kNOw Bullying!"



Mugging for the camera with Principal Podlesney.  I wish my Principal was this cool when I was in middle school!




WNEP's Ryan Leckey with 5th Grade teacher Tracy Wisdo.



These 2 8th Graders belted out a little bit of "Mean Girls".



Some of the 1000+ students and teachers helping to spell out kNOw BULLYING on the baseball field.



And as a special surprise for all the kids:  Above the Poconos Skydivers!



Sweet!!!


 


Pretty impressive, huh?



If you want to play "Where's Waldo?", Lissa and I are part of the hyphen between W & H!



Thanks again to teachers Tracy Wisdo & Renee Careyva and Principal Podlesney for inviting us.  It was a memorable day!!!
