Would someone please tell that police officer that camel backpacks (most people call them 'humps') are full of fat.
Two people on bikes sought for shoplifting from Tops

A Batavia police officer is searching the area around Tops for two white males on bikes with backpacks who are suspected of shoplifting.
The suspects are believed to be in their 30s or 40s. One is on a pink bike, the other on a mountain bike. They headed east on Main Street.
The officer said the stolen items were recovered, they think, but "the camel backpack was full of something."
Tops, has all sorts of camera's.
30's or 40's.....male.....pink bike.......hmmm........
I thought the humps are full of water?! Ha.
Ha Ha Ha!!! I think this Florida sun is cooking my brain. Ya' know, I read this story yesterday, but it took me two days to realize something. Who describes a backpack as 'camel'? Most people would say 'light brown', or 'tan'. I'm thinking the dispatcher (or the officer) said a 'camo' backpack, but over the scanner, it probably sounded like camel. How about it, Howard? Sound plausible?
Oh, Mardell, everybody thinks that. I had to look it up, just to be sure.
Ed ~ it might be beneficial to sit in the shade now & then...(LOL)
A Camelbak (brand name) backpack is one that has bladder in it for storing liquid and a tube that reaches around to the front.
They are popular for hikers, bicyclists and for other outdoor activities.
Thanks, Jason. I'd never heard of them. Isn't human innovation wonderful?
Does this mean I should throw away the beer-can holding hat?
Ya' know, now that you mention it, I think I may have seen a lot of those 'Camelbak' backpacks down here in Florida.
Hell, I figured all these old people down here, sucking on the tubes protuding from their backpacks, had just found some 'hip' way to carry their oxygen tanks.
OK, Mardell. NOW I'm looking for some shade.
Don't ditch the hat too soon, Ed. It'll keep the sun off of your head & might keep you cool as long as it was stocked with beverage.
Actually, Mardell, I've only had 5 beers since my b'day in 1998 (and never more than one at a sitting). I KNOW!! Hard to believe, isn't it?
Nope, I woke up on my 50th with a very, VERY hurtin' head, and said, "That's it!".
I've gone strictly botanical (or, as I like to think, I've gone au naturel). So now when you hear me say, "This Bud's for you", you can rest assured that Mr. Busch doesn't have his hand in my wallet.
Wow! Good for you, Ed! Harkens me back to the old LB&G days...Oh my....Glad to hear your brain cells are no longer being compromised (from drinking, that is.) Now the sun is a whole nuther issue.
So Ed, me being naive and all, what would "this buds' for you" mean now:)? Oh, by the way, what part of Fla are you in? My brother Joe is in Tavares....been there about 15 yrs now. Mardell, I really miss seeing everyone from the "old" days.....we had such a blast!
Hi Mike ~ I sure miss the old gang, I really do!!! If the walls at LBG could talk ~ oh my! The good old days for sure. Did not know that "Grumpy" is in FL now. Oh how we loved to pick on Joe. LOL You were the "good" twin! (wink.) And then......there was ED HARTGROVE. Need I say more? Ha ha. I'm sitting here laughing and remembering. Thanks for the memories ~ will never forget. What happened at LBG stays at LBG (or something like that.)
Hey, Mike! Good to hear from you. Sorry to hear you fell for that salesman's spiel - you know, where he lured you into buying naiveness (yeah, like THAT is even a real word!) I know you weren't as naive' as you tried to make people think (you never had me fooled).
Tavares is @ 180 miles north of me (Port Charlotte area). It's TOO cold up where he is - but then, lately it's been VERY wet all around my area - 10" of rain over a 3-day period. Good thing Florida is nuthin' but a 'sand bar'. The water sinks into the ground (sand - not dirt) pretty good. We have to go to Lowes or Home Depot to see what REAL dirt looks like.
Oh Yeah, I remember the 'old days' - Well some of 'em, anyways.
