Got an odd letter in the mail today. It was from a law office somewhere in Missouri saying that my Dad was a party to a class action lawsuit against A.G. Edwards. My Dad has been dead for ten years! Actually A.G. Edwards isn't around any more either, since it was taken over by Wells Fargo several years ago. This confirms what I have always thought about lawyers and class action suits. They are a total scam designed to make the lawyers rich. Somewhere near the end of the letter, there was an obscure paragraph explaining that the law firm sending the letter was to receive one third of the total judgement against A.G. Edwards. The lawyers share: 33 million dollars. My Dad's share, may he rest in peace: 12 dollars and fifty cents.
It looks like I've only got another week or two before I have to drag the lawn mower out of the greenhouse in the back yard and start mowing the grass again. This is one or the rites of Spring that I'm not that fond of. The odds are close to 100% that the lawn mower won't start and I'll have to lug it down to the lawn mower repair shop and pay them $130 to fix it. This happens every Spring like clockwork. Eventually the lawn mower gets fixed, the grass starts growing and then the dogs race around and tear it up.
