I bet he and to trim the receipt to get it to the right length. The upside is that he now has an identical spare!

Back in the days when I wandered around South Florida, we used to go to "Grand Prix Race-o-Rama" off of I-95. At lunchtimes on Fridays, a group of us would pile into a car, grab something from the drive-thru and head on down to Grand Prix. All just to play pinball. They had between 15 and 25 machines. Since it was lunchtime on Friday, you could play just about any of them. We'd play until 1pm, stop no matter what was going on in the particular pinball game we were play, and walk out. If there were kids there, we'd direct them to the pinball machines, and tell them which ones had any free games we racked up on them. We always had a great time playing those pinball games. I've heard the place was renamed Boomers at some point, and has since been torn down. I was able to pick up a machine (Eight Ball Deluxe) when I lived down there. Drove up to Palm Beach Gardens to pick it up. I think it cost me about $300-$400 at the time. Now new machines go for over $3500... sometimes a LOT over that. I wouldn't call pinball a "toy" either. Sure is a lot of fun though.
Finally a good use for kidney stones

I always thought this was a public service to keep us all off the streets. Regardless, thanks to Judi for putting up with us all. I'll have you know she fired herself at least a half dozen times. Fortunately, she thought better of it and rehired herself. Dave - hope Sophie is feeling much better!

I think they were both trying to decide who could do a better Jerry Orbach impression.
Sending best wishes to Sophie for a full and speedy recovery! Please let us know if there's anything we can do to help all of you through this.

Barbie was a shrewd negotiator. Her new pad originally cost an arm and a leg.

From the looks of him, he needed fresh lemons, because he can't concentrate.

Take care, Dave. Hope everything works out OK.

I've always suspected this was a source of inspiration for Dave's book "Lunatics"!

Well, my guess was "breakfast", which would have made some sense. (Yes, I know, silly me). Burgers? Really? I live in a near pretty small town (like 100,000), and we have Five Guys, Freddy's, at least seven McDonald's, three Burger Kings, two Wendy's, one Red Robin, one Meathead's, two Culver's, two Steak and Shake's, two Sonics, two Dairy Queen Brazier's, and that doesn't even count the numerous campus bars and other places (like Friday's and Applebee's) that serve burgers. Sadly, no more iHop. They must be really confident their burgers are great.
The "b" stands for breakfast
Jack has been undercover, playing a less powerful role in the US government, namely President of the United States. Let's hope Jack returns to the higher level position of 24 Operative and Thigh Shooter. Jack Bauer and the Thigh Shooters WBAGNFARB. PS. Sure hope Jack does come back. I already have two seasons worth of summaries written, and have been waiting to post them until Jack shows back up. Writing the summaries before they write the show makes it a lot easier.

Before they leave home, they should just ask what time it is and write it down. That way they'll be able to look at it all day. That's what we did when we were kids, and we liked it!
I hope someone's helping them with their convulsions.
