Got this e-mail from my brother Mantel Man the other day, complete with this photo:
"On our Grand Canyon hike, my friend Jessica and I found this sign rather amusing. I guess the Park Service had to cover its posterior. Given the fact that just a few days later a young man drove his car off the edge of the South Rim, can you blame them?"
Knowing Mantel Man, I'm certain he had just done what the warning sign expressly warned them NOT TO DO. The heat may have gone to their heads, because this was the next photo:
Then I, of course, asked his permission to post the photos.
"You want to post these? I guess I don't mind, as long as you're not planning something humiliating. Oh, wait -- you're my sister."
Then came the belated e-mail from Brother Bocci:
"I'm more concerned that someone tucks in his shirt while hiking!"
Blindsided by Brother Bocci again.
