License and Registration Please


HangingAround, originally uploaded by carolsLittleWorld.

On this day in 1989 I got stopped for speeding. It was a nice day, sunny, not much traffic, I had the radio on, a bit too heavy with the old lead foot, and that's when it happened. Damn. Blueys in my rear view yet again. How do I remember this, after so many years? Easy. Today's also my birthday.

Yes, yes, it's true. I'm older. Another day, another year. *Sigh* The good news is that it promises to be a bit of a nice day out today. The clouds are shaping up to be pretty anyway. I love clouds and I've been looking at them a lot lately. Yes, I know, side effect of being a photographer and all. But still, nice clouds make for a nice day and, so far, I'm liking the clouds that I can see out the top of my window from where I sit. I hope you have a great day too.

This shot is left over from last year-we've had little to no autumn yet-autumn doesn't typically hit in Austin until November. Don't worry, I'm sure I'll be out of compact flash when it does. (Kidding, kidding.)

Big plans for today are to go out for Chinese food. Yay! I love Chinese food, and try to come home early, enjoy a quiet evening at home. Wish me luck with that, right? Chase is at the groomer's getting clipped. I hope he comes out ok. I want them to keep his curls since it's soon to be winter.

Oh and the speeding? How did that end? Well that one's easy. I told the nice officer, "but today's my birthday!" Gave him my license and registration and he didn't believe me. He didn't believe me until he walked all the way back to his car, sat down, started filling in masses of paperwork, and then looked at my license again. He let me go with a warning and a "have a nice day!"

Yeah, you too, right? I'm totally with him on that last part.

Until next time...
