75-yr old Supermom. :smiley:

Go Mom!! Fortunately, the ACLU and radical judges will see to it that this misguided soul will soon be back at “work” again. :hug3: Rob

If mom has one more incident, I’d be thinking that mom wants some attention.


#5

Was there a prior incident?


#6

She was allegedly kidnapped last year.

Something fishy going on here…


#7

Unlike her kidnapping last year, they caught this guy. If something is fishy, they’ll know soon enough.

Or are you implying the Miami Marlins are somehow involved?


#8

No, no. It would be insulting to Mrs Ripkin to imply someone from the Flopping Fish was successful in detaining her for any period of time.


#9

They’d never be able to get her back to their home.


#10

Not if it had a plate on it. They haven’t seen home plate much this year!


#11

Again? She sure is a target for criminals.
