Better late than never.

    1. C'mon — what's not to like?

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

An unidentified woman has paid off a parking ticket she got in Calumet on Sept. 1, 1976.

Police in the Upper Michigan town had long ago written off the $1 ticket and were surprised when it showed up in the mail, along with a $20 bill and a note.

The message: "I always had good intentions of paying it. I put it aside and every once in a while I would come across it and said 'someday I'm going to pay it.' Now I think it's time."

The woman apparently hopes the matter is closed. There's no return address on the envelope. And the note says, "Please don't try and track me down. I am a respectable lady."
