      I have had 2 in my life. Last one I had was in 2008, so it's been 10 years ago. I was going 82 in a 70 MPH on the interstate. State Police got me. The guy came up on me chewing on a toothpick with thick dark sunglasses on. He was young so I knew I was screwed. The other one I got, I was in Highschool, just got my license. That was a 57 in a 40. That was back in 1989.

      No, I drive like an old lady but my husband has.  One time he was listening to a baseball game and not paying attention to his speed.

       

      It was expensive.

      Luckily, I've never be busted for speeding by the police. I probably just jinxed myself by saying that now. Never tempt fate folks. She does not have a sense of humor as all.

       

      Sorry to hear about your ticket JPPT. That's an expensive lesson we all would like to avoid. Not a reflection on you at all. God knows, I got away with a few highway infractions that I probably shouldn't have in the past. Hang in there my friend.

      You know where you hear a song it's original form by the actual artist & it bothers you because you know it sounds familiar but from where? I'm referring to Billy Stewart's classic "Summertime" BTW.

       

      Then, it hit me. "Stuck On You" the movie starring Matt Damon & Greg Kinnear with actress Meryl Streep...Want proof?

       

       

      Whew, now I feel better. You really perplexed me on that one for a minute JPPT. :D

  23. Happy Mother's Day! For mothers and for soon to be ones or ones that have passed on living in your hearts. BTW any plans over on it?!

      I'm a little late to the party here, but yes, mothers deserve to be honored for all the headaches we put them through as kids. The day itself is commercialized like crazy today. Having said all that, I agree with the notion of recognition & props for moms everywhere both here & departed unfortunately.
