Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (6/29/2018)

Nothing like having a full vacation planned only to find out mere days before leaving that the very first leg of your trip has been cancelled. Yeah, I had to deal with that a couple days ago when the airline decided to just scrap my flight, the only flight of that day and the only one that got us in to Venice in time for our cruise. Oh well. It just means I’m leaving a day earlier (today). Expect radio silence from me over the next couple of weeks, but as always, the site is in good hands with our amazing contributors. There will surely be some NBA free agency fun in the meantime, and I’ll do my best to keep on top of the myriad Woj bombs.

Thanks to Canadian casino reviews this week for the love.
