I Need to Get

A flippin' radar detector. Got stopped west of Luling, Texas for doing 70 in a 65. For crissakes! Usually won't write a ticket for under 8 MPH over.

Sheriff's Deputy was sooo young looking. Wrote me a warning. Nice guy.

We chatted for a few minutes about the weather (We agreed the cool weather was great) and other stuff after which he thanked me for my courtesy and I thanked him for just giving me a warning.

Sheeeeeesh...

Had a nice time visiting with eats_veggies and her hubster. They are great folks.

Lucky it was only a warning. It's very unnerving when "authority type" figures not only look younger than yourself, but look heaps younger than your youngest child!

***touch wood*** I've only ever been booked once for speeding and that was nearly 30 years ago. Hubby was booked 1 minute before me, but on the other side of the city. Go figure! (Oh, and I am lucky really, because I have been known to have a bit of a lead foot! :)

You are lucky. Carrying a rabbit's foot are you?

I've been very fortunate of late.. warnings.. all warnings...

but then, the cops are all my age.

The highway patrol that caught me going 110 in the Prius outside of Amarillo was pretty funny.. I was doing 55 by the time they turned around and caught up to me.. they paced me and just stared at me. I was too petrified to look over.

I still don't know why he didn't go on and pull me over..

Or maybe we could put thumbtacks in your shoe. More painful, yes, but effective on that lead foot. I'm glad you only got a warning.

Sheesh, EVERYbody looks younger these days. I hate it when doctors look like they don't shave yet.
