Strong to Severe Storms Possible


Channeling Ray Stevens - 04/09/14

I love to sing.  I sing to my kiddos and I sing in the car, shower, etcetera.

I don't sing on TV.  It's happened only once before today - when a producer in Tucson asked me to try the "Cup Song" with the whole hand trick thing.  It was silly.  I did it.  Okay, cool.

Well today, Deana Martin was in studio and coaxed me to sing.  Deana is the daughter of the legendary Dean Martin.  She is exquisite, funy, snazzy, perky, talented.  I could go on and on.  We were talking about the people her dad interviewed on his variety show, Ray Stevens came up.  I love those crazy Ray Stevens songs.  I was mesmerized by Deana and when I started singing Ray Stevens... well, I don't know what came over me.  She sang along and made it fun - even if I looked the fool.

I guess if nothing else, I had a good trip down memory lane.  My Gramps used to play Ray Stevens songs when I was little and I loved every minute of it.  My favorite song is "Mississippi Squirrel Revival" so I sang part of that today.  Maybe Gramps was listening - hopefully the rest of you were watching with the volume turned down.  :)

DAVID LETTERMAN-CAPITOL GYROCOPTER

NEW YORK (AP) -- David Letterman will soon retire. But he's not letting a juicy target like the U.S. Capitol gyrocopter landing go unnoticed. Last night, on CBS' "Late Show," Letterman did the Top 10 "questions to ask yourself before landing a gyrocopter on the United States Capitol lawn." Here are a few examples:

No. 8, "Should I do this during Secret Service happy hour?"

No. 2, "Should I land somewhere unguarded, like the White House?"

And No. 1, "Will I be the only person who actually did something in Washington today?"

AIR PUMP THEFTS

NEW YORK (AP) -- Some New York City crooks are getting pumped. The NYPD reports they're looking for two suspects in a string of air pump thefts from gas stations in Brooklyn and Queens. Seventeen such incidents have been reported since late December, the latest being earlier this month. Investigators report the pump bandits attach tow chains to snatch the coin-operated air pumps. The pumps can hold up to a few thousand bucks worth of change apiece.

MARIJUANA-BIKE TIRES

DOUGLAS, Ariz. (AP) -- Two Arizona teens are in trouble -- after federal officers say they tried smuggling pot hidden in bike tires. Customs and Border Patrol Enforcement officers report finding a total of seven pounds of marijuana inside the tires. A drug-sniffing dog alerted customs officers as a 17-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl crossed the border. The bikes were seized. The teens have been turned over to Homeland Security investigators.

CELLMATES-HOLE-DIGGING CHARGES

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- It's no Shawshank Redemption. Two men are charged with digging a hole in a cinderblock cell wall in a western Pennsylvania jail. They didn't get very far. Somerset County Jail Warden Gregory Briggs says the hole was only about four inches wide. Joseph Lee Bockes and Billy Ray Naill now face charges that include institutional vandalism. Authorities didn't file attempted escape charges because the hole was so small. The Somerset Daily American first reported the story.
