A teenage pilot from Compton arrived home in Southern California on Monday, capping a flight across the nation in preparation for what he hopes will be a record-setting around-the-world trip.

Isaiah Cooper, 16, touched down at Compton airport (to see video, click here) after a roughly two-week flight around the country, becoming the youngest African American pilot to complete the cross-country flight.  A flight instructor accompanied him.

Cooper’s 8,000-mile flight was not without difficulty. Bad weather forced him to make a hard landing that heavily damaged his original plane in Wyoming.  “He was able to execute the emergency procedures flawlessly, got it on the road, landed, didn’t damage the houses, the schools, the construction crew, nothing. I mean, he got out of that thing safely,” said flight instructor Robin Petgrave.

LOL – well, per usual, my original planned post wasn’t doable! I had this wonderful “First Friday – 2016” post prepared, but the year got off to an interesting start: the power went out at 6:33 a.m. on New Year’s Day. It has been clear and cold for the past week, and the winds decided to kick up and took down two large trees. The trees, in turn, took out a power line. In short, there was no electricity, and even if we’d had a backup generator, the internet would still have been unavailable – so, no post! The day was entertaining, though; we went out on the beach and I took a few pictures of the wind-driven surf, after driving around to get some coffee and a small bite to eat. When we got home, we prepped the hurricane lamps so they were ready if the power stayed off…

It’s Called Respect

After retiring, a former Gunny Sergeant in the Marine Corps took a new job as a high school teacher.

Just before the school year started, he injured his back.

He was required to wear a light plaster cast around the upper part of his body.

Fortunately, the cast fit under his shirt and wasn’t noticeable when he wore his suit coat.

On the first day of class, he found himself assigned to the toughest students in the school.

The smart-aleck punks, having already heard the new teacher was a former Marine, were leery of him and he knew they would be testing his discipline in the classroom.

Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, the new teacher opened the window wide and sat down at his desk.

When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he picked up a stapler and stapled the tie to his chest.

Dead silence …

The rest of the year went smoothly.

Autocorrect Texts

Some Saturday humour on 1st August…why not?


When autocorrect texts have gone this wrong, they can be “wildly entertaining”. It might be a good time to get your minds out of the gutter now!
