Why is it that when that happens the first thing they say to you is "do you know why I pulled you over?" Now how many people are really going to own up to that? Let's see officer...I think I was going 50 mph in a 30 mile zone? How did you know I had a dead corpse in my trunk? I have respect for all law enforcement officers but I find this one question to be down right ridiculous!
Yes, it was my fault I had an expired inspection sticker that I did not get to for all the car problems you are already aware I had. He was a very young officer no more than 23 years old. He asked me if I had been enjoying the park as he eyed the ice chest on my back seat. Told him I had not...I was driving around town charging my battery.
I think the only reason he believed me was because my mother was with me or I think he would have asked me to open up my ice chest...which I was secretly hoping he would do...as I had plastic ice cream containers with horse pellets that I could not feed to the mare because when we got to the Duck Pond her owners were there.
So my record of not being pulled over and given a ticket for twenty years...came to an abrupt end :-( The good thing was that he cut me a break and only issued me a "warning ticket"....thank you so much officer!
Before heading to the lake we went by the Duck Pond so I could feed the mare which I have named Claire. There was a young couple who had driven their car into the property and as we slowly drove by...saw that the man moved her empty down ice chest from where it had been (see picture of my last post about her) to another location as he proceeded to get water out of the creek...that means she had gone without water for two days! GRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!
However, this is not her owner it must be his son or some family member. Decided to come back after our trip to the lake.
Claire is such a gentle horse it is a pity she is treated in this manner. She seemed to appreciate her pellets.
|Her eyes are red, have secretion and are dirty!|
|They filled her ice chest but it is still filthy!|
