Hello there In July 2000, Patti took a marketing job at Burns Engineering Inc. in Philadelphia. Just a few yards and a drafting table away were the cubicles inhabited by the aeronautical electrical engineers, including one she found especially intriguing: Jeff May. In a predominantly male office, the women stuck together. It wasn't long before Patti confided her crush to the others, and they began plotting happy hours on days when Jeff had no late meetings. "There was a sting operation," said Patti.

"LET ME get this stuff out of the way," says Don Tollefson, moving a briefcase, files and papers from his car's front passenger seat to the back one, which is already jammed with a big cooler, law books and various bags. "I want to drive you around my neighborhood. This is my world now. " I do not fear the watchful young men who coolly assess us outside Tollefson's digs on Monday. He lives on a rundown North Philly block where the drug trade operates, 24/7. I am more nervous about Tollefson's 1997 Honda Civic.

DEAR ABBY: My fiancé and I plan to be married in the coming year. It will be the second marriage for both of us. My intended has an "adult" son I'll call "Jeff," who graduated from college last year and makes good money. His father has helped him out by paying his tuition, car loan, rent, a generous allowance and various other loans that have never been repaid. Jeff comes up short almost every month because he blows his money on vacations, clothing, electronic gadgets, etc., so he needs $500 to $1,000 to "get on his feet.

   When I lined up to run the Haddon Heights Firecracker 5K on Friday, I was in a costume of sorts: blue tank, blue shorts, and calf-high socks emblazoned with the Captain America symbol. It is not the best running outfit - the socks are cotton, which can lead to blisters, sweat-soaked socks, or both. The point was to dress in a patriotic theme, not break my personal record. It's the closest I've ever come to running a race in a costume. It was an attempt dwarfed by Jeff and Karen George LeClair of Princeton, who have won the Oddyssey Half Marathon costume competition four years in a row, in a June race in Philadelphia that's only five years old. "I wish we had known about the first year because we feel like we could have won it five years in a row," Jeff said.

DEAR ABBY: It has recently come to my attention that at work I am considered "bossy. " It came as a shock to me. I'm hurt that my co-workers and department manager think of me this way. I know I come on strong sometimes when it comes to helping customers, but I view it as helping. When I suggest to co-workers that they keep their areas clean and orderly, it is perceived as bossy. I'm just trying to help them not get fired for slacking off. I'm older than some of my co-workers and my manager.

A rusty horseshoe is nailed over the door. Inside, an ax leans against the wall. A wide-brimmed hat hangs on a wall peg. A cast iron tea kettle sits on the wood-burning stove. Outside their log cabin, Jeff and Joyce Thomas relax admidst the corn stalks and wild cherry, mimosa and black walnut trees. An old Volkeswagen with West Virginia tags sits rusting in the weeds. The sight stops passers-by dead in their tracks. They do a double-take. Wipe their eyes. Take another look.

Jeff and Kris Morrison have a contemporary center-hall Colonial in the West Chester area. Or so it appears at the first, enter-the-living-room glance. But stand still for a minute, and the neutral tones and overstuffed sofas recede into the background. In their places pop out a family heirloom and a talented offspring's creation. In a corner is Jeff's grandfather's green wooden trunk, the kind with the metal latches and the individual sections in the top compartment. In each section is an original paper picture of a 19th-century woman.

WHEN JARRETT McClenton was around 7 or 8 years old he was no stranger to great running-back play. Long before he shared Daily News Player of the Year last season, McClenton, now a senior at Archbishop Wood, watched his older brother, Jeff, play football at Conwell-Egan. Jeff was a speedy wideout and safety in his own right, but Steve Slaton was the burner in the backfield. "He could always make the big run because he had breakaway speed," said Jarrett, who is 5-8 and weighs 165 pounds, "but he was also very physical when he ran the ball.

The Sum of Us deals with the relationship between a father and his homosexual son, but don't sigh and assume that it is yet another work about a son's frustrating search for parental acceptance and a father's learning to come to terms with his child's sexuality. Far from it. In Australian David Stevens' play, which opens the Walnut Street Theatre's studio theater series, the father is so accepting and supportive of his son's sexual preference that he's a major nuisance to the younger man, becoming the oddly refracted image of a meddling mother determined to see her daughter happily married.

Philadelphia pianist Orrin Evans isn't just a brilliant player and composer, but a savvy curator as well. That's why, for the finale of Evans' live jazz series at South, he's welcoming one of post-bop's most poignant, pliable, even poetic drummers and composers, Jeff "Tain" Watts. Watts was given that nickname by late master pianist Kenny Kirkland ("Kenny taught me to trust my ears and instincts, and I miss him dearly") when the pair played with trumpeter Wynton Marsalis and his saxophonist brother, Branford, for the better part of the 1980s.

FIRST STOP, Indianapolis; next, Pocono. Jeff Gordon never expected these two races would be on his summer itinerary. The winner of 93 career Sprint Cup series races (third all-time) thought he had retired after last season. But when concussion-like symptoms sidelined Dale Earnhardt Jr., Gordon was summoned from the Hendrick Motorsports bullpen. With only a few days preparation, Gordon drove Earnhardt's No. 88 Chevrolet to a 13th-place finish in last Sunday's Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

BOCA RATON, Fla. - A year ago at the NFL meetings, we got the "good-to-great" speech from Eagles chairman Jeffrey Lurie. It isn't clear we'll hear from Lurie again, as the league's owners and general managers settle down to business Monday at the Boca Raton Resort, after gathering for the first time Sunday evening. But at some point, Lurie is likely to bump into Chip Kelly, the former Eagles coach whose power grab Lurie rationalized a year ago, Lurie extemporizing for 40 minutes under a fierce sun outside an annex to the Arizona Biltmore hotel.

More Rain (Merge ***) In his capacity as Zooey Deschanel's helpmate in She & Him, Matt Ward is responsible for more than his share of musical sunshine. Fair enough, then, that on his eighth solo album the guitarist and producer - who oversaw gospel great Mavis Staples' new Living on a High Note - tends toward the gray and drizzly. More Rain is a musical mood piece that throws an overcast spell on a set of 11 originals and one cover - of the Beach Boys' normally sunny "You're So Good to Me" - that demonstrates Ward's way with vintage rock, folk, and R&B atmospherics.

MONTREAL - Five years later, the Jeff Carter trade is paying new dividends for the Flyers. Oh, they certainly could use a scoring machine like Carter, one of the NHL's most dependable forwards. But the return they received is getting better each day: Jake Voracek. Sean Couturier. Nick Cousins. Those turned out to be the three young players the Flyers received for Carter, now 31 and starting to decline. And while then-general manager Paul Holmgren would like a do-over on some of his moves/signings, this isn't one of them.
