The Diary of a NobodySparrow has the latest from the stabbing at the hotel, plus the crew runs roughshod over morning coffee service. Today’s Diary. 

What was funny with the Halliburton crew’s coffee service this morning is that very little coffee was consumed but boy, they did blow thru the creamers, all three, too: half and half, hazelnut and French vanilla…All were pillaged, it wasn’t safe for women and children and it was only because I was a trained professional that I was able to bring some order to the matter…What the hell was going on???…Were they only drinking creamer???…If so, did they use our provided cups, or were they doing shots???…How in theeee hell to you use a dozen creamers, at least, and two drops of coffee???

It’s Sparrow, an average man passing an average life.

On This Date
In 1983 – What History now refers to as the Gimli Glider, actually Air Canada Flight 143, lands without fuel at a former Royal Canadian Air Force Base near Gimli, Manitoba. All 69 people on board survived, though ten were injured while being evacuated. Flight 143 was on it’s way from Montreal to Edmonton and plane ran out of fuel because the amount of fuel needed had been calculated in pounds instead of kilograms. 

In 2009 – Mark Bruehle of the Chicago White Sox throws the 18th perfect game in major league history, retiring all 27 Tampa Bay Rays he faces in a 5-0 White Sox victory. The perfect game was saved by a splendid defensive play by center fielder DeWayne Wise, who stole a home run from Gabe Kapler leading off the ninth inning. Wise scaled the fence in left-center field, had possession of the ball, then lost and only caught the ball on his way down. The Catch, as it is known in Chicago, is commemorated on the outfield at the spot it happened. 

In 1977 – Barry Manilow is at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the third and final time as Looks Like We Made It is at the top for its only week. The song as written by Will Jennings and Richard Kerr and also charted in Canada, where it peaked at #9, and in Australia, where it peaked at #91. It was Manilow’s sixth of eleven Top 10 hits and the seventh of the then-record eighteen consecutive Top 40 hits that started his career.

So they redefined evil…In the meantime the family on the summit was haunted by the sight of white relatives in slavery to them.
