I heard a rumor that F-18 jets would be flying into Teterboro at around 1:30pm today. I had a 1pm appointment scheduled at HUMC. I got there at 12:45 and explained that I needed to leave around 1:30 to run up to the HUMC roof and try to get shots of the jets. They thought that was pretty cool.

Seven minutes later, we all heard the jets fly overhead - damn!

I was not happy. When I was done, I told them I was going to Teterboro and was determined to get some shots...........and that's exactly what I did at 2:11pm.

The first image is a 3-photo stitch.

 I hadn't heard why F-18s were flying into Teterboro, but the second image shows that the plane on the right is practically in the Walmart parking lot, so that should tell you..............absolutely nothing.

I haven't been on the walkway in a while, so I took some shots on Tuesday:

1. Start with a stitch: under the Anderson St Bridge at high tide

2. Stitch 2: Just before you go through the walkway's open gate at the northern end of the park, this is what's on the other side of the fence on your left.

3. This was an easy fix.

4. I saw this sign just before the Rothman Center. It referred to the pedestrian bridge over the river between the Teaneck and Hackensack campuses, but it turned out to be a sign that someone forgot to take down, because the bridge was open.

5. If it wasn't open, I wouldn't have been able to get a shot of this festival ad on the bridge's Equinox box. The show's next weekend in Dover, DE, if you're interested.

So - for every picture - you expect me to provide cross streets and other information for every background building that has nothing to do with any of the rehabilitation activities in this thread? There's about as much chance of that happening as there is of you sneaking in a third plug in as many days for your Record article.

Of course, if you were to give me exclusive credit for the paper's plummeting circulation.....................nah, no one's dumb enough to think that.

All silliness aside, I'm glad that you're getting so much out of this thread - it's every writer's dream.

Well, that was a riveting diversion. Now, back to business.

The cement pumper truck arrived first thing Monday morning, unfolded its tentacle and did its thing.

I'm tempted to make reference to Jed Clampett's "CE-ment Pond", but I won't.

So I guess every reader has to be a Sherlock Holmes. "Look, Mary, that steeple looks like the Presbyterian or is it the Catholic church ......"

Meanwhile, circulation of The Record has plummeted, thanks to your critique of the Sports section:

Yes, readers want local news in the newspaper, and that's the reason why The Record's circulation dropped. It would be difficult to recover the readers at this point, but not impossible.

Most readers are now relying on TV, radio, and social media for national and international news. They are not buying the newspaper for national and international news. And the one aspect of that which used to be DAILY was the guy who wrote the political cartoons, and they cut him from daily to weekly.  And that really hurt The Record.

Readers want local news in the newspaper, and sports, and if it doesn't deliver that, they'll drop it.

A photo caption is supposed to give helpful information about the picture. This is an incredibly dopey-assed caption that's off in so many ways that the only thing that's accurate is that it shows Todd Frazier. There's nothing else that connects this picture to anything in the caption after his name. For all we know, Todd could be saying, "Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane...".

You can see that the date of publication is today - Monday, June 4, 2018, so the "Monday" mentioned in the caption can't be today, right? That means it would have to be last Monday - if it was any further back, it would need a date. But the Mets weren't in Cincinnati last Monday............they were in Atlanta.

Why go to such lengths to make up irrelevant nonsense that any sports fan can see right through?
