I'm confident we're done for the season.

How many times did he go to jail?

Obviously their parents like to do it around the same day every year.

Most want to do it year round, not just around the same day.

With snow or mowing?

I put my blower away a week ago but heavy snow in April is common though itís usually gone in a day.

Wiki says he did 9 months in prison once but most of his legal trouble ended with fines or other slap on the wrist stuff.
He did get a new liver once.

I just like that orangey tan better. Especially in cars with dark blue, dark green, or maroon paint.

I could always get a dark grey Dashmat if the glare is too much, it's an Arizona tradition! :)

I remember one paralyzing April snowstorm in the 1980s that has forever seared itself in my mind. I still don't put my stuff away until end of April. Ascared. :(

It's my birthday too! Our family coincidence is I was born the day MLK was shot, and my sister was born on his birthday a few years later.

Got a birthday morning hike in, dunno if I'll go for my age in miles, kilometres sounds like a nicer ride length.

I agree with you on cars in those colors. Nothing better than a British Racing Green with tan interior. Dark blues and maroons work as well.

Porsche does have a tan/black option with the more true tan:

Cut your hairs to celebrate.

I realized they are actually 3 years apart. I forgot the son was a bit younger than I am. We were sometimes drinking buddies BITD>

Be careful on your birthday, Lester.

This guy bought a new Ferrari on April 1, and crashed it within 2 miles of the store. No other cars involved.

We have no real family coincidences- kids are 17 months apart to the day is about as close as it gets and my oldest was born on Flag Day.

I have the honor of sharing my birthday with Easter this year. I think itís the first time ever.

Happy birthday! Don't crash your Ferrari.

We had a cyber attack a few years ago. No real harm, but now our cyber security whatever you call it blocks all sots of websites. It's actually annoying at times. Last month a couple of us wanted to look at the menu of a local restaurant but could not access the restaurant's website.

Ooof. Looking at the first pic I thought for sure he rear-ended a pickup or tractor-trailer, but nope, single vehicle accident, looks like he tucked the nose under a guard rail.

Well, now you have a coincidence - my oldest was born on Flag Day also (June 14 in Tejas).

Happy birthday to you on Sunday!

I would guess either tried something stupid or was fiddling with controls and not paying attention. In that kind of car, you piddle with the stuff, then you go drive it!

Starting with iPhone X, the repair will cost you about $300.

Time to realize you are living in 2022, and not 1992.

my last 2 phones cost about $300 each and they work fine. Not giving big tech more than I have to.
YMMV
