Hi, Leslie!

Hi, Princess!

Well, a lot of stuff is going on lately. Sunday was your Aunt Karen’s birthday! Also, you know I love my Red Sox, right? Last night Brock Holt hit for the cycle. That means in one game he hit a single, a double, a triple, and a home run. The last time a Red Sox player did that was in 1996!

And don’t forget, this Sunday is Father’s Day! Your mom always used to give me a Father’s Day present, and I always used to love it, no matter what she got me. See, it was never about the gift, what mattered was that she was letting me know how much she loved me. Let your daddy know you love him!

Anyway, I gotta go. I love you mostest of all!

Love you,

Triple Crown

Hi, Leslie!

Today a horse won the Triple Crown. The horse’s name is American Pharoah.

This is a big deal because the last time a horse won the Triple Crown was way, way, back in 1978! That’s five years before your mom was even born!

Now, horseracing isn’t really my thing, but this is special. In order to win the Triple Crown, a horse has to win three big-time races in a row. The Preakness, the Kentucky Derby, and the Belmont Stakes. American Pharoah had already won the Preakness, and the Kentucky Derby. And today, he won the Belmont Stakes.

A lot of people bet money on horseracing, so a lot of people made a lot of money!

Well, see you later. Love you, Princess!

Car show

Hi Princess!

Today was a beautiful day, weather-wise. So they decided to have a car show. This is where people who own cool cars – they have to be old cool cars – to show them off. Here’s just a couple:

Bye, David

Hi, Princess!

Well, tonight is a special night because it’s gonna be the last show David Letterman is doing. David Letterman is a late night talk show host. He’s been on TV forever, it seems. Me and your mom used to watch him even back when she was little. That’s how long he’s been on TV!

So, anyway, I’ll be watching the show tonight and thinking of your mom.

Love you,
