Poor Nathan thought today was Rat Pack day, but actually it's Pack Rat Day! Too bad; he had the pants and everything. Still, this would be a good day for Jake and Helen to finally finish cleaning out the garage. They've still got a few arguments left in them, I'm sure.
Today is also the extended deadline for federal income tax filing, so if you haven't gotten that done yet, then...good luck.
