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- Courage

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.

Ann Clemmons

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

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

Catch your dreams


Most of the worlds' great things were born of adversity and hardship; because these roadblocks encourage us to dream, imagine and believe.- Ann Clemmons

Favorite quotes-

In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I’ve been turning over in my mind ever since.

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'

F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

"I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself"

Mark Twain
