    Hi Karin!

    Code 5150 is when cops are dealing with someone crazy. They have to confine them (against their will)if they pose a danger to themselves and/or to others.

    I had no idea, so I had to look it up:

    Section 5150 is a section of the California Welfare and Institutions Code (specifically, the Lanterman-Petris-Short Act or “LPS”) which allows a qualified officer or clinician to involuntarily confine a person deemed to have a mental disorder that makes them a danger to him or her self, and/or others and/or gravely disabled. A qualified officer, which includes any California peace officer, as well as any specifically designated county clinician, can request the confinement after signing a written declaration. When used as a term, 5150 (pronounced “fifty-one-fifty”) can informally refer to the person being confined or to the declaration itself.

    Well, damn, now I know what the cops were talking about. Me, crazy?? I don’t think so. Is it my fault that Thorin found himself locked in my basement and I had to ‘tend’ to him three times a day. I might have had to threaten him a time or two, but it wss for his own good. Just because I threatened to take his good eye away doesn’t make me 5150.
    Isn’t it amazing how that Viking will turn on the charm . . . and the ‘talent’. Yeah, he has some sweet tasting . . . ‘talent’.

    5150 is crazy.

    So that’s what Van Halen was talking about with the 5150 album. They were freakin crazy. Actually its the name of Eddie Van Halen’s home studio but whatever.

    And Margaret, be careful. I might have to kidnap him from you. He sounds like my kind of guy. Hmm, makes me really want to read about him. I WANT, I WANT, I WANT.

    Thank you SO much, Karin! Congrats, Judy! And thanks for the good wishes, everyone! I’m *crazy* with joy, but somehow that isn’t quite the same as 5150 (which as everyone’s already mentioned also implies to the extent that involuntary detainment’s needed…) 😉 Happy, happy release day, Karin!
