COVID-19 tried to ruin our Fourth of July fun, but all the city firework cancellations only served to create the most “private” firework shows (set off illegally if you are within the city limits) I can ever remember seeing. I love the lawlessness!
Who needs a barge when you have a backyard? Amirite?
Anyway, the fun didn’t end with the fireworks! I bottled up all the scoops I could find, so I could shoot it right on over to you — bottle rocket style.
Enjoy! Safety glasses are recommended.
Mystery metal man returns
A guitarist and his boat captain known for shredding while cruising the canals of Dauphin Island in a Carolina Skiff returned to the SoMoCo waters over the holiday weekend.
The music man plays an electric guitar with an amp for optimal sound.
His set list included such tunes as “The Star-Spangled Banner” and “Sweet Home Alabama.” With it being an election year, the duo added a Trump flag to their small craft this year. And they were, of course, donning their finest red, white and blue attire.
’Merica! Ain’t it grand?
WPMI reporter heads back to “The Office”
NBC 15’s Jaysha Patel was recently featured on the “Office Ladies” podcast, where uber fans of the hit show “The Office” can listen to Jenna Fischer (Pam) and Angela Kinsey (Angela) break down individual episodes.
On their July 1 show, they broke down the episode “Diwali,” which is about the Hindu festival of lights.
The episode was written by Mindy Kaling, who also co-starred in the show as Kelly Kapoor. In this episode, Kelly invites the whole office to celebrate Diwali with her family. And, of course, the usual shenanigans occur. Steve Carell’s character, Michael Scott, thinks it’s a Hindu version of Halloween.
Jaysha, who was a child actor, played Mindy’s little sister. In the podcast she explains what the experience was like and who helped her learn her lines.
You can check out the “Office Ladies” podcast wherever you get your podcasts. And learn more about one of our local reporters! Pretty cool!
Well, kids, that’s all I got this week! Just remember whether rain or shine, dramatic or scandalous, or some plain ol’ “Office” lovin’, I will be there. Ciao!
