FYI - The gym bag and its contents belonged to my son, not me. I don't think the bible would work, too many born again parolees out there. A "How to Kill bad guys" book would be asking for trouble.

I haven't carried an R.N. license in years. It was great. Cops, especially city cops, bonded with nurses. I was advised when I was a newbie nurse to place it next to my driver's license - it worked on more than one occasion. I have no idea if nurses still do this.

What amazes me is I have never just been pulled over. I have gotten two speeding tickets in my life and I was flying each time. One in college and the other twenty years ago. Even driving in the South we have never been stopped other than two checkpoints when all cars were stopped. Each time they barely looked at my license and sent me on my way. They were looking for illegals and suspended/without a license.

If you don't mind my asking, was most of your time spent on Maryland roads in the D.C. suburbs?

I've never been pulled over, my time in the DC suburbs is on the Virginia side--still very congested.

I've been pulled over for speeding, twice. Each time i was asked if i knew what my speed was, i told them exactly how fast i was going. I think they were both dumb founded to hear the truth. It was with a town policeman and a state trooper. They ran my license, saw no tickets and let me go with a warning.

Um.

Just because SR typed "wife", that doesn't mean SR is a He.

Ah! Sweet Mystery of Internet Life ...

I hate when people just disappear here on City-Data. You always wonder if something bad happened.

Two people come to mind: Plaidmom and Coldjensens. Now Plaidmom wasn't a regular poster on the Retirement forum, but I think she did post on occasion. Interesting person, very sharp, but hasn't posted since January 2012.

I'm not sure that Coldjensens ever posted on the Retirement forum...I saw him most often on the House forum. Very knowledgeable about older houses, interesting posts. Haven't seen him on City-Data since August 2013.

If anyone knows what happened to these two posters, I'd be most interested. Hope they're OK.

SR has been a CD poster from way way back, well before I joined, posting many times per day long and detailed posts in Retirement. My guess is that SR is off in some place traveling, an apparently frequent thing.
