I heard from SR on 2/27 - I always thought SR was a she.

One of the problems of having been so cooped up these past few months of nasty winter snow and cold is that I found myself irritated with the various short comings of this house and thinking about how I might change things.

I figured out that if I could move the kitchen from it's present location to what is now the sunroom it would be a great thing. Now I just have to figure out which of my friends has a car that would be good enough to be the get away vehicle since I'd need to rob a bank to pay for the remodel.

So did a lot of people. SR was careful to leave no clue one way or the other, always talking about a "spouse", but once he slipped and typed "wife" instead. Sort of fits in anyway with being a driver of semis and being adept with tools, repairs, and construction. Not that some women don't also do those things, of course. But I'm just saying...

Previous screen name was "JudyXXX" (XXX - can't remember). SR - if you're reading this - is you a she or is you a he?

Well, I was not aware of any previous screen name in this case. Perhaps you are right after all.

Well, damn! I was posting on C-D when [s]he changed his or her name, but I didn't even bother trying to remember her original name. Hmm, between your memory and my self defense skills (hahah), we'd do o.k. on a long road trip, AKA Thelma and Louise. Can I be Louise? Pretty please??

I just saw that show last night - I don't want to be either of them - yiyiyiyiyi

How about we do the "Driving Ms Daisy" thing and you can be Daisy but I warn you - I have a bunch of tape.

Uh uh! No one is allowed to tape Ms. Daisy's mouth. That would be downright rude.

Time to reminisce:

A friend and I referred to ourselves as Thelma & Louise after my vehicle was pulled over by a Virginia Trooper near the VA/MD state line. Drug runners? He called for assistance and another cop car with flashing lights joined the party!

He stated he pulled me over for some b*** s*** reason, crossing the center line or something like that. He and his new companion used their monster sized flashlights to look into the front and back of my SUV while my friend tossed around the items in my glove compartment looking for my registration card.

After the troopers left, my friend and I were ROTF laughing. She told me that while she was searching my glove compartment she came across (and hid with her hands) a bottle of pills (yep, they were narcotics without a prescription label) and a pair of panties. Meanwhile, while the cops were checking out the back of my SUV I remembered that I was carrying a gym bag that held nunchucks, sais and kamas. The gym bag was significant to me because every law student who sits through Criminal Procedure knows darn well the stupid criminals always seemed to keep their drugs and/or weapons in a gym bag. Given my possession of drugs and weapons, we could have easily been held for hours had the officers been so inclined.

However, I also realized that if they looked closely, they would see a large number of law books in the cargo area. The latter may have been why they did not ask to search my vehicle. Or, it could have been that we really did appear to be two middle aged ladies who enjoyed a nice evening playing bingo before the illegal stop. BTW - I adore VA troopers - I even had one offer to change a flat tire at one time.

As luck would have it, I was again pulled over the next evening after leaving the same friend's home in Maryland. I rolled down my window and yelled "Now what?!" Seems I drove off from my friend's home without turning on my headlights. After a nice chat, the officer let me leave without a citation or warning. (Although I have been pulled over on multiple occasions, I have had the most amazing luck in avoiding tickets. I think I had two tickets my entire life - one when the trooper actually apologized for writing out the ticket before he saw the RN license I kept next to my driver's license and the second time when I was in a snit and intentionally drove past a police officer on the interstate.)

Oh, well, those sure were fun days!

I figured you'd catch this.

Brilliant!! I am going to find some used law books to carry in my car - great idea!!!! Would a bible or 2 help?

RN license

Those would be good for the law - then for the thugs a book on "How to Kill bad guys with your new black belt".
