In the middle of making a batch of onion bagels. They are second rising now and I'm about to boil and bake them.

Yum Andy! That sounds delicious. I'm catching up on all the laundry and assorted housework before I make a quick run shopping and to a work meeting.

I just got in from cutting the back. What a beautiful day to be outside, but I've been out most of the day and now I'll take a breather so I don't OD on this good weather.

You really have to pace yourself. The good weather will be here for a while.

Wondering why we were sent a Ticket like fine for something that we didn't do. It's a $25.00 fine so far. Pay up by next month or it's up to $150.00.
They say that we were in L.A. earlier this month. We supposedly didn't have some type of sticker on the vehicle in question that allows us to be in the carpool lane legally.

For starters I wouldn't be caught dead in L.A. Besides I'm still grounded.

At the day and time they gave it's impossible that we were there, and back home again. With our schedules? Impossible. Besides the gas bill and mileage would have been known. In that particular vehicle.. Are they kidding me? that tank stays parked! Our sons definatly wouldn't do something as stupid as that. They've been ruled out. At the time given we were all home and sleeping.

Another thing that bothers me is that the form asks for credit card and lice #'s.. Not a chance that I'm giving that kind of info up. Especially to a business that doesn't have a 1-800 # and uses a p.o. box.

They say we can dispute it over the phone. They might own up it's a computer mistake.

Or we can pay the extortion fee of $25.00. That can be waived if we join up using their services. To join up is a $25.00 fee.

Anyone else here think this is a bit odd?
The Boss will be talking with someone about it later today. Hopefully it's just a mistake and not some kind of scam.

Join up to be allowed to use the carpool lane? Huh?

Ask some of the Angelinos here at DC. That just doesn't sound right.

I don't see a location listed for you, Munky, so I'm not sure how far away you might be from LA and whether or not this was even remotely possible, but don't these types of tickets usually have a photo of the vehicle or license plate? I've never heard of a mail ticket that was not accompanied by some kind of surveillance so you know they "got you" dead to rights.
