Traffic Tickets


Have you ever had this scene?
Handing your information over to the police officer.
I have.
Most recently around Christmas.
I ended up with a ticket in that instance
BUT
Up until then I had only ever gotten parking tickets.
Thankfully I live in Jersey but if I lived say, hmm, California I would probably get a California Traffic Ticket more times than not.

Not to say I wasn't ever pulled over for some off the wall reasons.
I will never forget getting pulled over with a friend of mine, a  tall, blonde Nordic looking guy.  As clean cut as they come.

We were traveling in his Red Geo Metro.  We pulled into a convenience store, realized they were closed & pulled out.  We got about 300 feet when the lights went in and the police officer pulled us over.

His reason? We matched the description of a pair of armed robbers.
Hello?!!!??
We were in a Geo Metro...not exactly the get away car of choice among criminals.
Is it?
If you are a criminal please let comment and let me know.

Of course, I got pulled over for making an illegal left turn...in front of the sign that said "No left turn".  That turned out ok.  The police officer and I shared the same birthday so he told me he would let me go and to please not do it again.

I've been pulled over with Cheeks in the car.  One time leaving the shore.  It was 11am & there I was with my 3yo son & my 62yo mother.  Yes, we definitely looked like we were on the lam.

To make matters worse, the police officer was wearing shorts & knee socks.  He looked about 17, I had to stop myself from asking me if he mom knew where he was.  His partner was playing hid the flash light beam with Cheeks. 

I was let go.  He wanted to let me know my taillight was out...after he questioned me what I was doing down the shore at 11pm during the summer season.  Gee, I don't know, enjoying the boardwalk perhaps?

Tickets definitely are no joke and can be really pricey but they are what they are.  NJ Traffic Ticket cost money, as do California Traffic Ticket so in the experienced words of moi...don't get a ticket!

Smurfs: The Lost Village & Psst...a lightening fast Giveaway too!

Smurfs: The Lost Village is coming out April 7th.  That's this weekend.  
I don't know about you but I remember when the Smurfs first appeared on the scene.  Way back in the 80's...that's early 80's mind you.  I think I just gave away my age.  Yes, I am that old I remember the original gang.  I even had little Smurf toys.  One was a police officer.  That was because my dad was a police officer.
Enough reminiscing, I am so excited that the Smurfs have stood the test of time and the my child gets to experience them.  At 10 years old, he still likes them.  His favorite Smurf...Papa.  So we are definitely heading to opening weekend to see Smurfs: The Lost Village. 
Let us see what this film is all about:
In this fully animated, all-new take on the Smurfs, a mysterious map sets Smurfette and her best friends Brainy, Clumsy and Hefty on an exciting and thrilling race through the Forbidden Forest filled with magical creatures to find a mysterious lost village before the evil …

Nessie & Me...a Review & a #Giveaway

Need a cute movie for the little ones to watch, this is the one.
Cheeks & I watched it, we liked it, albeit a bit young for my 10 year old boy.  I would say good age range for kids is maybe 3 to 7.

Here's a bit about the movie:

The Loch Ness Monster has been back in the news following a recent sighting and resurfaced pictures, just in time for the release of family movie “Nessie & Me,” which is now available on DVD & VOD, courtesy of Vision Films!

The townsfolk don’t believe him, but Jamie wonders if Nessie can be the solution to save the town from a greedy mogul who is buying up land around the lake… if only he can prove that Nessie is real. But sometimes it takes a little bit of magic, and with the help of a mermaid, a treasure map and an unlikely friendship with Nessie the Sea Monster, Jamie and the people of Lak…
