Speed Demon


Buttercup stationing himself on my suitcase again last night! He is so worried I will leave him again!

The comments and guesses on my speeding ticket cracked me up! You guys are so funny! I especially loved the one about how my husband should have let me go out that day with no pants! Maybe that would have helped……. Note to self: No pants next trip.

The state highway speed limit was 65 most of the way, then it suddenly dipped to 55 and I didn’t realize it. Oops. I was clocked at 76. The winner is Jeanette!!!

Oh, and he said I could plea it down to 64 and keep it off my record. Should I wear pants to court? πŸ˜‰

(P.S. Approximately $1200 was raised via the Soldier’s Angels hurricane relief auction!)

    Your state hiway limit is the same as our interstate limit. Our state limit is 55.
    As to the pants—what if the judge is a woman:?:

  2. Melissa says:

    :talktothehand: No, the cop was wrong. You were going 63 mph. The number came to me mysteriously. 😈

    Poor Butterboo. My cat sends whisker rubs and head butts. =^.^=

    DON’T WEAR PANTS IN COURT. That is funny πŸ˜† So what if the judge is a woman?

  3. Robyn says:

    Way to go Jeanette; congrats.
    Poor Buttercup;pets can be so insecure about being left out of a trip or, like my puppy wuppy, even going for the mail. He loves his car rides.:bananadance:

    I guessed higher. I thought you were more of a rebel than that … πŸ™‚

  5. kacey says:

    poor Butter. So afraid you’ll leave him.

    Hm…the no pants approach would be interesting…:mrgreen:

  6. Toni Anderson says:

    That poor deprived cat 😐

    If you didn’t wear pants, you could plead insanity–but then they might take away your license so that’s no good!!

    Congrats on the auction total!!!:thumbsup:

  7. Shelly says:

    That’s awesome for the auctions! Hope you get the ticket dropped down. I’d go for the ‘hot for teacher’ look in court. LOL

    I’m jealous though…the highways where I live in WV are 50 mph…

  8. Melissa Marsh says:

    Our highways are 65. That’s because it’s usually a long stretch of straight road with the occasional bounding deer to look for.

    Oh, I love that picture! Clever cat wants to keep you at home.

    What a great picture of Buttercup! He’s certainly staking out his territory.

    My mother once got a ticket. So she went to court to contest it. Since the policeman wasn’t there to give his side of the story, she got off! :thumbsup:Downside, she had to drive at least 60 miles round trip to do it.:thumbsdown: At least she didn’t get any points deducted though in the end it cost her almost as much. But then, my father, who’d had a stroke and couldn’t drive, enjoyed going for the ride.:grin:

  11. Mary says:

    76 isn’t fast at all. You should have stayed in Texas, that’s cruising speed there.

  12. Eve says:

    Yeah, Mary’s right – and even 70 in some spots! Wear pants, but make them tight and wear a thong, tight tee shirt too.

    Congrats on the auction total!!

    Congrats Jeanette! Go girl!

    Poor little Buttercup. I just rescued a approximately 7 week old kitten that I now HAVE to find a home for – good grief.:wall:

  13. Tori says:

    I’m with Mary. Loved the speed limits in Texas. :mrgreen:

  14. Crystal* says:

    I LOVE the cat pictures. Love them. Toby the Wonder Kitty likes to lay on my hip to try and immobilize me.
    The “no pants” effect? You know. I’m dying to read the post on that one.

  15. Crystal* says:

    Sorry! I just noticed that your Ads by Goooooooogle is all about traffic tickets now.

  16. Michelle says:

    LOL. Okay, not too bad. And yes, you must wear pants to court!! :hyper:

  17. Kelly says:

    Congrats on the auction, Suzanne!! And yikes on 76mph. Did you notice your google ads are all about speeding tickets because of this post?? :rotfl:

  18. Paula says:

    Loved the pic of your cat!

  19. Steph T. says:

    Wonderful news on the auction!!

  20. Teresa says:

    Aww, Buttercup missed you! LOL on the no pants next trip. I may have to try that . . . but then again I haven’t gotten a ticket . . .

  21. TeresaH says:

    Next time take Buttercup. *G*
    Congrats Jeanette!

  22. Cherlyn says:

    I hate when that happen…when you’re cruising and the speed limit drops. Writers should get a break because we’re thinking about the next story. Hey, maybe next time you can offer the officer the lead role in the next book! :bananadance:
