People/things that made me smile this week

1.  The first Clinton-Drumpf  ( the correct spelling of Donald's real last name) debate was televised this week, and Hillary wiped the floor with him.
 He was concerned with the coughing jags that Hillary Clinton tends to have when speaking because she has acid reflux, but she didn't cough one time during the entire 90 minute debate. She was calm, and professional and prepared,  but Donald Drumpf was a sniffling jackass during the entire debate. He was even asked if he had a cold afterwards, and he said no.  The pics in the cybersphere were funny as hell. People were reading Drumpf for filth, and I enjoyed every second of it!

2.  After finding out his teenage sister had been killed in a car accident over the weekend, Mark Ross said he wanted to be with his mother as soon as he could.
Without a vehicle, Ross said that he convinced someone he knew to drive, and jumped in the man's car just after 3 a.m. Sunday in Indiana. Ross wrote in a Facebook post that they were speeding through Ohio, bound for Detroit, when the lights flashed behind them.
"I knew I was going to jail due to a petty warrant," Ross wrote on Facebook.

Ross was in the passenger seat of the car when Trooper J. Davis pulled them over, and the driver had a suspended license and an outstanding warrant as well, according to Inside Edition.
Trooper Davis ended up taking the driver into custody and having the car towed, which left Ross stranded in Ohio.
Ross explained what happened next when Ohio State Highway Patrol Sergeant David Robison arrived:
"I broke down crying and he saw the sincerity in my cry. He REACHES OVER AND BEGAN PRAYING OVER ME AND MY FAMILY. He offered to bring me 100 miles further to Detroit because they towed the vehicle. Everybody knows how much I dislike Cops but I am truly Greatful for this Guy. He gave me hope."
True to his word, Robison drove Ross more than 100 miles to a Detroit coffee shop where he could meet his cousin.

3.  Officer James Poole thought he was doing an on-camera interview about his role with the Columbus Police Department when he was surprised by a man whose life he saved 19 years ago. Chris Jones, now 24-years-old, burst into tears seeing the man who saved him from drowning in a hotel pool when he was just 5. The grateful man said that he was underwater for a longtime when he was rescued back in 1997.

4.  Pittsburgh Steelers running back DeAngelo Williams announced earlier this month that his nonprofit organization, The DeAngelo Williams Foundation, will cover the cost of 53 mammograms at hospitals located in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Pittsburgh.

                 Willliams is a staunch supporter of breast cancer awareness. In 2014, Williams’ mother, Sandra Hill, died after battling breast cancer. She was just 53 years old. He also lost his four aunts to the disease, but not before leading a push in 2009 to allow NFL players to wear pink cleats throughout October, Breast Cancer Awareness month.

5.  Janet Jackson really is pregnant!  And all this time I thought she was renting a uterus for nine months!
6.  A Canadian Immigration attorney called me today regarding an email I sent the Government of Canada a couple weeks ago regarding steps to take to be legally authorized to work in Canada. They scheduled a phone consultation this following Monday!

7. Solange Dropped her new CD  A Seat At The Table. It's Fiyah ( as the kids say)!

What made you smile this week?
