Fast Friday: Airports, Great Sips + More

Adventures at the Airport

Hope my fur is non-flammable! Guess we'll find out.

Posted by Tampa International Airport on Monday, June 15, 2015

This will make you love airports or at least airport employees. A 6-year-old boy named Owen left his favorite stuffed animal at the Tampa International Airport and after airport employees found the tiger named Hobbes they decided to give him a tour of the airport. On his lunch break Airport Operations Center Manager Tony D’Aiuto showed Hobbes around the airport taking photographs along the way. When Owen and his mom, Amanda Lake returned to the airport to pick up Hobbes they also got a photobook of the stuffed animal’s adventures.

“It was very, very sweet,” Lake told ABC Action News.

Is Anyone Not Running for President?


Is it just us or does it seem like everyday someone else announces they are running for president? It’s getting a bit ridiculous not to mention hard to keep up with up. Can someone get us a chart, please?  Thanks, NY Times. Jeb Bush and Donald Trump were two of the new additions to officially announce this week. You’re forgiven if you thought Donald Trump was a joke at first. It’s going to be a long 15 months, folks.
