Gotta laugh!

Wednesday afternoon my volunteer fire department was paged out for an overturned Coca Cola truck on RT. 20... There was no injuries but it did tie up traffic for some time. When I got Thursday's edition of the Bluefield Daily Telegraph much to my suprize, I saw myself on the front page of section B. (It's me, RT, standing foreground left) I was so tickled by this, being all the years on the PD and never making the newspaper (which I guess could be considered a good thing) I had a buddy scan the photo so I could email it to my friends and family back in Philadelphia... One of the people I sent it to was my 21 year old niece, and the warped sense of humor that runs quite deep in my family being what it is, I got this photoshopped picture back a few hours after I had sent the original...

It does run it families! You just have to love the Wolfenden sense of humor!

The last time I was in the paper was the police blotter section when I was rear ended. Yikes!! And, they posted my age about 3 times the size of everything else. LOL

That's funny, and adorable. It's always gratifying when we can see the next generation taking up the smartybritches ball and running with it, yeah?
