    I call out Siu for witchery (she jinxed mah)!

    So it seems like the wonderful local County Clerks failed to enter into their databases that the ticket for my broken headlamp ($200 bucks by the way) was paid in full months ago. It also seems that when you write the word "same" on the "postal address" field of a change of address form, they assume you meant "yeah, same old PO box you have in your system", instead of "same as the new residential address that's written above". Therefore your new shiny license have your residential address on it but all mail notifications about your license being suspended for a clerical error go to Limbo.

    Thanks God, Siu jinxing powers are not fully developed and as cops are returning to my car rubbing their shiny handcuffs, Rube finds the paid ticket in the glove compartment and the nasty "Driving with suspended license" offense gets downgraded to a lesser "Driving with suspended license *without knowledge*" citation and Rube is allowed to walk his sorry ass back home as a pissed off member of the free community.

    My apologies to my road assistance service operator... it really wasn't the best day to point out that I only have two free towing services allowed per every 6 month period. I really don't think they are all *insert something bad here*, I was just having a bad day.

    My most sincere thanks to the cities of Maitland, Winter Springs & Longwood for maintaining the beautiful network of biking trails that got me back home safely and relaxed, despite the ongoing issues.

    Also let it be known that some new cheapo pay-less office shoes might not survive 15mi long hikes... just saying

    Now if you excuse mah I'm gonna place my feet on some hot water.

    You need to record your daily life and sell it as a reality show.

    Wonder if spry would like to be the producer? I'd say writer, but face it, nobody can dream up the stuff that is the events that Rube calls reality.

    As I read tonight's mandatory educational material (Florida Statute 322.34), I would like to confirm that Rube's(TM) incidents are indeed not suitable for Reality TV. It is more of a Soap Opera genre and is bound to go the way of "All My Children" and "One Life to Live".

    I had to let that go. Most local PR agencies don't work with you unless you go there in person ($money$). Then, best case scenario I do find the car, and ship it to Florida ($mo'money$), get insurance for it ($mo'mo'money$). The issue is not forgotten, but is at the far end of my to-do queue.

    I thought there was another twist where there was some reason you needed to find it?
