And now Debbie Reynolds, Carrie Fisher's mother, passed. Never saw any of her movies. But looks like she was the voice of Charlotte is Charlotte's Web. And a small handful of other things I have seen over the years.

Guess who spent last night with the police and ASPCA? Apparently my girl has seen one too many of those commercials with all those sad dogs and Sarah McLachlan music and mistook letting a dog out to do it's business in the backyard for a minute as chaining a dog outside in the middle of a Siberian Winter blizzard and called them. So a few hours of Kitty nearly pissing herself with excitement over new people to play with, explaining why the damn dog only responds to Kitty, and me restraining myself from squeezing my kid a little too hard and I've been cleared of any potential charges. I'm really not sure if I should be proud of her for having a big heart to do something like that or throw her off the roof.

Should maybe hedge your bets and do both? Seems like the prudent thing.

Caring is good, but maybe bringing up your concerns with Mommy and Daddy before calling the cops is better. At least you all had an exciting night. Smiley: lol

I really miss living someplace, where to experience winter, you need to drive up into the Mountains. Then we used to go camping up near 10.000 ft. and had to worry about chance of Blizzards in July. Once just barely made it over Kaiser Pass, on way home due to snow, that had been rain where we camped at Bear Creek.

Also loved that all my bulbs bloomed in Feb. and the roses bloomed all year.

Got 18 inches one day, then a week later it warms up and everything melts. Then we get about 5 inches over two nights. And today it warms up to 45 degrees (F) and then everything turns into standing water (ground is frozen).

My driveway is a lake. And it's going to freeze tonight. Will be fun tomorrow. I tried to get the tractor out and plow it, but there is no where for the water to go.

Oh, and then there is this. Man receives $128 ticket for warming up car in his own driveway

Quote:
Roseville Police Chief James Berlin says leaving the key in your vehicle while it is unattended is “a public safety issue.” If you use a remote starter and the key isn’t in the car, it is OK.


The person who got the ticket called the officer a "dip****" on facebook after finding it. So what does the police chief do? Takes the high road, of course...

Quote:
Berlin said he's not tearing up the ticket. He's angry about the name calling.

"You see the disparaging comments he made about my officer?" Berlin said. "Drop dead."


I've only been driving for something like... 18 years in Michigan. And turning on my car every morning to heat it up and melt the ice before driving to work has been the routine for the last 12 or 13 of them.

It's such a public safety issue that the officer chose to issue a ticket, while not actually doing anything to resolve said public safety issue. Like, say, walk up to the door of the house which belongs to the driveway the car is parked in and knocking and letting the person know his car is unsafe? Issue a ticket if you want, but if you don't also resolve the supposed safety issue, then it's not really about safety. It's about collecting fines. I suppose it would be one thing if the car is parked on a street, or in a parking lot (the real focus of laws like this btw, since that's where most of the thefts occur, and where the need to leave the car running unattended is lowest), but when it's parked in someone's driveway and thus you should have a pretty darn good idea who's house the car belongs too? That is kind of a dipshit move IMO.

Yeah. I'm not sure what they expect people to do otherwise. Just seems like a cheap and easy way to pad the departments funding with some fines. You could probably do a sweep of any residential neighborhood between about 7-9 AM and toss as many of these tickets on car windows as you wanted.

Again, the intent of those laws is to try to reduce the amount of police effort and expense dealing with cars stolen in parking lots because their owners left them running with the keys in them "just for a minute while I ran into the store to get a paper", or some such nonsense. I honestly have no clue why people do that, but I've personally seen it done probably hundreds of times (work in a convenience store with gas and you'll see this constantly), and have seen several cars stolen because of it. So I get why the police get frustrated at this, and I get why they support laws like this. But to use that in a residential zone, and in someone's driveway? Seems like a huge stretch and a ridiculous interpretation of the letter of the law.

Last eye exam, I was told I'm developing cataracts and will someday need to have them removed. Then I hope to finally have 20/20 vision again. My dad had the surgery for cataracts and then no longer needed this glasses. Unlike back when my grandmother had the surgery and needed special glasses that limited her vision to a very narrow field of view.

The local school district knows something that I don't. Apparently I have a child.

I keep getting calls from them, asking why my son isn't in school. And I keep telling them they have the wrong number. Then a few weeks ago I get a call from the school and when I answer it, I hear people talking in the background, including the voice of a child (I can only assume that's my son). Part of me feels bad about not supporting this child. But the other part of me wonders why the mother never even told me we were having sex. Smiley: disappointed


You'd think they'd take my comments to them when they call about my number being the wrong one a bit more seriously. But now my number is on the school's auto-dailer for school closings. Last week it called me at 4:45am and woke me up for this. Now it called me twice in a row, about 3 minutes apart, at 9:30pm.

I'm going to have to give them another call and tell them to remove my number from their list. Weird thing is, this isn't a new number. I've had this number for almost 4 years now. Who ever this is must be giving out very old numbers as contact information. I'm pretty sure I know her name. First name at least (don't remember the full name). Because there was confusion when I went to buy a car part and the number had already been used. The clerk behind the counter actually turned the monitor to me and showed me the old account it pulled up. Probably not exactly a kosher thing to do (name, address, etc.), but I recognized the name as someone who I had received calls for before. So I'm thinking that this persons son is actually in school now, and they are still attempting to use this number.

Find a track of screaming children on Youtube and play it the next time they call and make up a story about how you're busy curing meat or something gruesome. Then when the police come by explain to them you got tired of explaining how the school has the wrong number and got tired of the harassment.

Tangentially related story: back when I was in highschool, a local radio station used to operate a phone number for girls to give out to guys they really didn't want to see again. It was a local area code number, but when you dialed it you were greeted with an automated message to the effect that "this person gave you this number because they don't want to ever see you again! They'd rather play leapfrog with a unicorn than ever talk to you!" in a cheery voice with glib music in the background.

I received it more than once. Smiley: cry
