Another Peek at the Relatives While We Were In Philly

If you ever need to rent a really cool brother for some kind of PR reasons, consider this one, the one who's giving me weird looks while I hug his shoulders.

. . . Or this one, although Maria has first dibs on him, of course. Be forewarned, my rates are high for their rental. . . .

Here, we likely have my brother corrupting my sweet husband, Doug, with something on his camera. Can't you just tell by the look on Robert's face?

All was not fun in Philly. . . . This city is downright evil when it comes to parking! My brother, Robert, got a $76 parking ticket. . . . AFTER having put money in the meter AND having a handicapped sticker in his window. Down the block, 4 cars down, was a sign that said "bus loading zone." But not next to where he parked, but apparently he was suppose to know. Here, Doug is frowning ferociously at the parking ticket we got. . . . $36 for being about 3 minutes over! And then there was the $26 fine my sister got because of the way tollway lanes were labelled, and they missed the window to get toll ticket, and had to pay for the entire length of the tollroad, when they got off 3 miles down the road!

Everything else about Philly sang "brotherly love," but definitely not their parking policies/transportation policies!

Its all I can do to manage my own brothers - so while your offer is intriguing, I'll have to pass (although I've seen the handy work Maria's husband does - and that is certainly tempting). The sticker price on the parking is enough for me to avoid Philly (and it doesn't look too good when passing through on train - quite depressing actually).

Your post was like a recap of that show Parking Wars about the Parking Authority in Philly! I appreciate my smallish city that doesn't have a singe parking meter or toll road :)

Sorry, but due to Christmas present buying I'm all out of extra funds to rent more brothers. :)

Nice captures of your family...they look like they have a lot of personality.

Isn't my husband cute? I know I might be slightly biased . . . nah! Isn't he just so cute?
