There was very little traffic and I was rolling along at a good clip. As it turns out, it was a really good clip. Yep, turns out I was going 61 in a 40 mph zone. Officer Buzzkill did not care that I was the only one on the street and having a wonderful morning.
I ended up going to traffic school for this ticket where I was instructed to use my cruise control and always set it for 5 miles over the speed limit (unless you're in a school zone). This has helped me rein in my natural tendency to lead foot the gas pedal. Speaking of school zones, I am truly amazed at how many people illegally pass in school zones. The definition of passing is the front of your vehicle passing the front of another vehicle so if someone in the lane next to you is going say 12 mph and you decide to go 15 and the front of your car moves ahead of the front of their car, that's illegal!
Here's a funny thing that happened recently. I was on a list with Alice Cooper. I donated a knitted shawl for a local charity fundraiser and one of the other donations for the silent auction was a guitar to be personally signed by Alice Cooper who also lives in Phoenix. When I received the list of donors, I realized this is probably the only time in my life I'll be on the same page as Alice Cooper.
wishing our sweet nephew a
Very Happy 19th Birthday today!A few years ago, this talented musician also did something I'm betting he wished he hadn't done. According to my sister, he decided to pitch a firecracker into their toilet, slam the lid shut and see what happened. Well, what happened was the side of the toilet blew out, ruining the toilet and soaking the bathroom. He ended up having to spend his savings replacing said exploded toilet.
Boys will be boys. And if you don't believe me, pop on over and check out this post by Shell at Things I Can't Say. I'm thinking she may never blow dry her hair again. Be sure to tell her I said "Hi!"
