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!

Do You Blick?

Not too many of my readers may know this but I have a degree in English/Elementary Ed. 
I am passionate about the education of young ones.
Most passionate about the arts.

Thanks to Blick I am going to be able to help a local school get some much needed art supplies.  You, too, could help your school get supplies that they need.

Take a look at this:

Amazing answers isn't it?
My son loves ART.  This is his most recent creation:

I proudly display it in my dining room.

Thanks to Blick children whose art funding has been cut will be able to continue to create. 

The AWESOME thing about Blick is on their website they allow an art teacher (or anyone) to create a wishlist...just as if you were registering for a baby or wedding shower.  Registering for art supplies...I love it!  It's part of their Art Room Aid project.

Most districts, the arts are the first to be cut sadly, but now thanks to Blick perhaps they can stay.  Art Room Aid is a unique program that allows anyone to purchase anything off the wishlist created. 

Check it out!
Let me know what you think.

Even better, check out my supply list that I have made for Davis Elementary in Camden NJ.

It's definitely a program that you can't go wrong with...seriously.
