"Mario" Gets Her First Warning!

Most of you who know me well know I drive too fast sometimes. Marty has called me "Mario" for years because of my lead foot. Fortunately though I'd never been pulled over for speeding....until today. I was in a big hurry because I could not get Heather out of the house on time to get her to her band contest so I was driving way over the speed limit as I neared town. Thankfully the officer only gave me a warning (my first) and sent me on my way. Whew! I continued on my way at a much slower pace and got Heather to her destination (late, despite my speed).

When Marty arrived home from work he complained that my bad luck was rubbing off on him! He brought in a warning he'd recieved today as well. It seems the same officer who'd pulled me over early this morning pulled Marty over later this afternoon not a 1/2 mile from where I was stopped. He too only recieved a warning....but he was pulled over for only doing 2 miles an hour over the speed limit! I admit I was driving slightly faster than that. When we headed back to town to the fair...Marty took another route to avoid that stretch of highway!

I took some random photos at the fair which can be found on my other blog. Heather had asked if we could attend the Fair Queen Contest tonight at the fair. Her friend Cleary was one of the candidates. Unfortunately the contest took place just as we had to leave the fair and pick Heather up from her band trip. Before we left, I received permission to go back stage prior to the contest to take Cleary's picture. She looked stunning!

Okay, I was LAUGHING, LAUGHING, LAUGHING as I was reading about you BOTH getting pulled over on the same day by the same cop. Too funny.

Hey you people out there - Mrs. Mario has gotten me to places in times that I didn't think were humanly possible! She does tend to put it into WARP speed. =0)

Oh My Gosh!!! After all these years.... It is very funny you both got warned by the same guy, same day, nearly same place! There is a website you can check for speed traps.... :)
