1. Dallas police nabbed a 14-year-old drug smuggler at the Tornado bus station in north Oak Cliff. She was carrying three suitcases loaded with 45 pounds of marijuana back with her from Laredo. Her mom thought she was at a sleepover. She’s definitely going to a sleepover now.
2. It was a record 107 degrees yesterday. In the sort of counterintuitive move that proves my genius, yesterday I decided to haul about a dozen wheelbarrows worth of soil from the backyard to the front. On Saturday, which was also hot as [pick your curse word], I went to Elliot’s, bought a bow saw, and spent a couple of hours cutting up the two full-tree-size branches that fell from our giant oak into our neighbor’s yard. Next weekend, I plan to body surf in molten hot lava.
3. And remember, our own Stacey Yervasi will be on Good Day Dallas this morning, talking about Best of Big D. Programming note: you may want to turn your volume up a skosh. And if you missed it, I’m sure there will be a bit of discussion about it later.
