    The only thing that I'm sure about is that they frequently say "Those people in the South just don't know how to drive in the snow."

    What a shame to smash up a perfectly good Mercury like that, I could use a car like that for hauling the lawnmower to the cabin!

    Oh Oh...

    The owner of the vehicle is a divorced soccer mom from Battle Creek. Because she has to run the kids over to dance class she couldn't respond to the questions. I did catch-up with the dudes from the hood who "borrowed" the car for a few hours last Thursday night.....

    - The last book they read
    'You & Your Probation Officer" (Jackson State Correctional Facility Print House)

    - The last restaurant they ate at
    Oswald's Family Restaurant, just prior to the robbery

    - Favorite television shows
    "Cops"
    "Parks & Recreation"

    - Favorite beverage
    Rolling Rock

    - S.O.'s occupation
    Single dudes

    - Last store shopped at
    WalMart, at least until the Marie Osmond CD "fell" into the one dude's coat pocket and they turned into track stars

    - Last carryout store shopped at
    Triangle Cash & Go, but they left in a hurry when the vehicle failed to get all the way through the front double door (and they left behind their "let's drag the muffa ATM" chain)

    BEAR

    It looks like our senior plans examiner's car.

    He doesn't read (except building code)
    He can't afford to go out much, but he likes Whataburger
    Favorite TV show is whatever we're watching in the break room
    Favorite beverage would be beer if his wife and kids didn't sap all his beer money
    The job, plan review
    The last store...I guess Walmart

    Nope. Virginia has front license plates. I'm guessing this is Pennsylvania.

    Carry on.

    - The last book they read: World of Warcraft Master Guide, Second Edition

    - The last restaurant they ate at: Sirloin Stockade

    - Favorite television show: Mythbusters

    - Favorite beverage: PBR

    - S.O.'s occupation: No current S.O., but his ex-girlfriend use to be a waitress at the local off-track-betting facility

    - Last store shopped at: Passions.. the adult bookstore out by the interstate.

    - Any other details: After his '86 Chevy Nova finally kicked the bucket, he bought this van, in its current condition, from his neighbor who owns a salvage yard, for only $275. He got the awesome deal cause the odometer is broken, but it must have over 200,000 miles on it.

    I never had the pleasure of owning an 86 Nova, but I did have an 85 and 87 at the same time about 10 years ago

    Well it could have been lost during the recent "Van Skiing" incident which changed the aerodynamics of the vehicle...but I'll give you that one.

    Generous on your part, but I admit I had forgotten about the "Van Skiing" incident. The half-pipe imbroglio alone could have accounted for the lost front license plate. My bad.
