So you know how you can be zooming along in life happy, happy, happy....and then not so happy. Well, here's how it started. Traveling to camp in Northern Maine...nice weather...clear roads. My husband and I are chatting away and I turn the corner and begin to build speed...maybe too much speed... yes apparently too much speed. I notice blue lights...not yellow...not green...but blue. Blue lights, let's see does that sound familiar to you? Oh, no. Really? I did not see that the speed limit had gone down to 35MPH. So then you know how you are suppose to be a role-model for your children...Here is part of the conversation with my 20 year old daughter. "I got a speeding ticket on Friday." "What, another ticket? You're going to have to change the license plate on your car!" It is truly humbling, and terrifying to have to come clean with your children. Tomorrow I will tell about the license plate.


  1. I had to chuckle as I read your slice. I earned my last speeding ticket while on vacation in Montana five years ago. Our youngest son has yet to let me live it down.

  2. Whoops! Zooming along is one of my favorite past times! It is hard to be a role model 24/7. I've had to ease up since I'm teaching my daughter to drive.
