ShovelBums 17th Anniversary ...It was a dark and stormy night... No, wait. That is not right.  It was a dark, but not stormy night, around 4AM April 25th 1999 when R. Joe was in his office in Ozark Hall at the University of Arkansas avoiding writing a final paper for Sabo's Environmental Archaeology class.
