BLUE! BLUE! BLUE! DOH!!! DAMMITT!!!!

Well, it just gets better and freaking better.

Today I was tooling home in my big ole 4-cylinder Ford Aspire and as I went up a hill with ten cars in front of me- Guess what happened?

I got Blue-lighted.

I dutifully pulled over, gave the nice officer my DL, Registration & insurance card as he explained why he had pulled me over. Seems I was going 50 MPH in a 35 MPH zone.
Well, first of all- I was moving along with the traffic-Not a valid excuse tho and I wisely didn't voice that thought.
Secondly- I HAVE to pick up a bit of speed in that car or it doesn't make it up to the TOP of hills....again- Not a valid excuse and I wisely didnt voice that thought either.
And Thirdly- why did he just pull me over? Just because I was at the back of the line of cars- but again...Not a thought I voiced...but had I done so I'm sure he would have come up with the correct answer which was...
" Miss? Have you ever went fishing? Did you ever catch ALL the fish in the lake?"

I've only recieved one ticket in my life. And it was for guess what? Going 50 in a 30 zone. 16 years ago. So much for my extra holiday pay I was looking forward to for the next two weeks. And guess how much that extra holiday pay would have added up to?

$110.00.
The EXACT Amount of the citation the nice officer wrote me.

PLEASE hurry 2007!

Catching up on after-holiday blogs...and ouch..tickets hurt and get rid of that couch. I have the same exact thing (minus chair masssage) and hate it. He picked it out and apparently I am forced to live with it until Ms. RB gets a tad older and the living room is remodeled.

Hugs and Happy New Year!

So the old saying IS true!

"The hurrieder you go, the behinder you get."

I'm sorry your behinder got caught speeding.

LMAO - well it could have been worse actually- I was actually going 51 mph- but he shaved off one MPH cause i have a perfect driving record-oops- I DID have- and it was the difference in a 110$ citation- and a 450$ one.
Bless him.
