I need a Get out of jail free card
Golly, this policeman really needs to slow down...I'm going as fast as I can...
To be honest, I'm not sure what is wrong with me. Withing the last two years, and lately two months, I have bumbed Because I'm in a bit of a jam at the moment...however, I will return this afternoon to explain...At least I hope, I will.
You see, some say I'm not a good driver- but, the policeman told me that I'm a good driver, it's just that my foot is too heavy for the go pedal-
Hence, until automobile manufacturers start making heavier pedals, it may be a good idea for me to not touch the pedal at all, but then how would I got anywhere?
However, between you and I, who looks like the speed demon in this picture?
At any rate, my father will not forgive me when he realizes what I did this morning. Because my Father is a retired policeman, (and I should know better from my days on the force anyway- go ahead and laugh) he will not understand how I managed to forget to pay a ticket before the due date, which just happened to be my birthday- a date you would think I would remember or forget-
Yes, I am thirty five years old today,(?) and I forgot to pay a ticket that was due on the same day I was born- talk about adding insult to injury-
I realized I didn't pay the ticket this morning when my father called to tell me Happy Birthday; then I raced to my desk, grabbed the ticket, and dropped to my knees...
I stared at the date on the back of the ticket wishing it was an Etch-a-Sketch toy; that way I could wash the date away in a magical minute; But, that is not real life. Therefore, I have to get to the court house on time.
But, I will be back soon to explain more about how I became a criminal, that is, if the cartoon policeman doesn't run me off the road.
In that case, it may be longer...geesh, can't he see I'm not trying to get away?
Will post soon...
By the way, does anyone happen to have one of those "Get out of jail free" cards?
Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons
Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.
Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.
Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light
She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free
For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well
Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination
