Tuesday Talk

March 12, 2013

Good morning and happy Tuesday everyone, you’re old friend (well, not that old) Bob The Parrot here. This week is going a little slow, perhaps it’s because Joey and I are taking some personal time off next week, and you know how that is when you are looking forward to something. Exciting times in the Vatican, they should be electing a new Pope very soon, I think everyone is anxious to find out who it is whether you are Catholic or not. Checking the weather maps there are no big storms out there today. That’s it for now, have a great day everyone and keep checking back.

Monday…Off And Running

Good morning everyone, Bob The Parrot here. Joey and I both hope you had a great weekend. From all indications, the events held in Puerto Rico this past weekend went off allright, I’m sure I will get more feedback over the next couple days. Joey and I watched the movie "Marley" this weekend telling the life story of legandary singer Bob Marley. Joey and I thought the movie was very well done and extremely interesting since we have been to his house and many of the places mentioned in Jamaica. He truely was someone special!!! Checking the maps there are no major storm out there today. Have a great day everyone and keep checking back with us. See uou on One Caribbean Television….
