"I have a game of Stratego that for some reason has been around since I was a kid (30+ years). The box is more tape than box, but miraculously, it has all its pieces. Warms my heart to see my kids play it."

So Long Men's Barbers

In my modest little town of 12,000, which has 22,000+ when college is in session, we have two barbers.

A look with the flashlight showed a caked-on, black, gunky mess two or three feet into the drain pipe; the auger won't budge it. In fact, I think I may have closed the clog up even more snaking it in…See More
