HELLO FROM REHAB!!!!   Not sure if anything's been shared but Sunday dinner at my parents' a couple weeks ago was in fact an elaborate ruse to stage an intervention.  Actually it wasn't very

Everybody take a minute tonight (or today) to raise a glass to HeckDad.  My sister just called to tell me that he passed away at home.  Don't have details other than he fell, but he was 94 with a bad

Just ate another Sloppy Joe. At work. With pepperjack cheese. I could probably eat this every day for the rest of my life.

I'm eating Sloppy Joes tomorrow for dinner. On a boat. And then I'm getting tore up from the floor up. Should be a fun Friday morning at work.

Are you making them on the boat?

I think they're being made at someone's house and then transported to the boat.

Howdy boys!!!!!

It's BENIGN!!!!! Some kind of hermertoner (SP)

But it's bening and ALL CLEAR! Just have to keep an eye on it in the future if it grows it may have to come out someday. I guess it stems from me having tuberculosis when I was a kid, but for now it's all good.

Thank you all for the well wishes!!!

Love all you guys!

Awesome Pack!! Great news!!!!!!

Be excellent, but not TOO excellent. Harmony is bad for business.

Tomorrow starts the college dropoffs for the first of my triplets. Coastal Carolina just outside Myrtle Beach. Come right back and head to Temple in Philly. Come back again and then head to U Tampa. First and only kids. Didn't think I would be to emotional about it. We've been involved in so much of their stuff that it is just starting to hit me. Hope I keep it together. Wife is a wreck too. GM you should be a pro by the time the twins head off.

Good luck buddy. Never saw my dad cry until we said bye when he dropped me off at school.

CHAMBERSBURG >> A Shippensburg handyman slapped with a parking fine in Chambersburg tried and failed to enact his revenge by paying with 2,500 pennies last week.
Irked by the $25 ticket he found on his work truck, Justin Greene said he went straight back to his Shippensburg home to retrieve the pennies that were rolled in coin wrappers. When he plopped the coins down on a Chambersburg borough office counter, he was rebuffed. Borough officials cited a federal regulation — a notice Greene argued was well-hidden among other material on the board.
"(A borough employee) had to search for it and finally found it amongst other papers on the bulletin board," Greene said.
He was still aggravated four days later when recounting what happened about 9 a.m. Aug. 7.
"I pulled up to a house on Fifth Street to pick up some tools and parked on the wrong side of the street," Greene said. "I came out 10 minutes later and had a ticket, and there was no one in sight. I just thought the amount of the ticket was ridiculous. I wasn't parked at a hydrant, wasn't blocking traffic or emergency vehicles."
Greene said he's never tried using coins to pay a fine before, but chose to in this case.
"I just feel the amount was ridiculous," he said this week. "I work too hard for my money and thought it would be fun to get back at someone, inconvenience them like they inconvenienced me."
It didn't work out as planned
Borough Finance Director Jason Cohen said he spoke with Greene that day and pointed out federal regulation Code 31 U.S. Code annotated, Sections 317 and 460.
Cohen said a sign posted in the borough office reads, "Federal law specifies pennies and nickels as small change and not legal tender for debts in excess of 25 cents."
Cohen added Greene could have paid in quarters and dimes instead and the borough would have to accept them as payment.
Meanwhile, Greene said he may still write another chapter to the story.
"I haven't paid it yet," he said this week. "I've been busy and I still have time. I'm trying to think of an alternative way to inconvenience them."

Best Buy still accepts pennies from angry albinos.

$25? Tickets are $73 here and even if you prove you were wrongfully ticketed they still charge you $10 for their inconvenience.

Did I ever finish my parki g ticket story? Strange and sort of happy ending, like a massage from a Thai ladyboy.

I don't think so

And now it seems like he won't ever.

Well, it's the damndest thing. Quick recap.

- Jan. 2014, I get a parking ticket on a Sunday with my family. I paid for parking, but the ticket was for placing the parking receipt in the wrong window. Ticket was for $39.

- In my typical adolescent, temper-tantrum centric behavior, I wrote a check for $39, but included a sketch of my middle finger, told the court that I had paid for parking, told them to go to hell and wrote "prison rape" on the memo line of the check. I might or might not have put a booger somewhere on the check, which I might or might not have circled with a message saying "this is a booger". :mellow:

- Check for $39 is cashed. It's reconciled.

- About a year later, I get a letter from the court saying the Judge reviewed my letter, found me guilty and was increasing my fine to $139. If I wanted to talk to the judge in person and find out why he did what I did, I could set up a court date. Pass.

- I hemmed and hawed, did some research on the Judge, learned he has a history of doing this, had some articles written about him, saw some law professor or some such say this was unconstitutional and decided to file this letter in the recycling bin.

- About a month later, I get a letter from the State of Oregon saying I now owe $150 to the court and will face serious business consequences if I didn't pay.

- I gave up the ghost and paid. They got me by the balls. Check for $150 sent to the state, no middle finger, no boogers, no curse words.

- Two weeks later I get a refund check from the division of parking for $90. :shrug:

Weird.
