Well, my day was different. I had to go to Topeka to do a few things. Coming home I was coming down one of the gravel roads that has a four way stop. Now I do usually stop. Mostly. There is very rarely any traffic coming. Once in awhile there is.
Well, today my son had called me on the cell phone and I was talking to him as I approached the stop sign and barely braked and went around the corner. It was then I realized a sheriff was setting there watching. Oops! I hung up real quick and watched my rear view mirror. Yep, he was coming around the corner with lights flashing. Okay, I’m caught. I pulled over, got out my license and put my hands on the wheel where he could see them. As he walked up to the car I held out the license and smiled sheepishly. He was very nice and said I need to stop at the stop signs. He wanted to know if I lived around here and I said yes. He wanted to know if I came this particular way all the time. I said I sometimes do to be different. I sometimes go straight after the stop sign.
I guess the neighbors have been complaining about people not stopping and speeding down the roads. I was NOT speeding, but I do have a bad habit of not coming to a complete stop. This time I did not stop as much as I usually do. My bad! And of course there is very rarely anyone coming or going down the road. Today two vehicles passed as I was waiting for a check to see if I was wanted by the law for anything. Thankfully I didn’t know either people in the cars. 😀
The sheriff came back and said good news. I was not wanted by the law, so he was going to let me off with a warning and a smile. He also reminded me to STOP at the sign next time. I said I would and said thank you and headed on home.
And a little ways down the road as I approached the next corner, a horse comes trotting down a driveway and down the road. With no rider, saddle or bridle. I don’t know how he/she got out but it looked like it knew where it wanted to go. I followed it down the road, and as a truck came from the other side it went into a driveway leading to more horses in a pen. It turns out it belonged to the son of the couple living in the area where the horse went to. I guess it wanted to visit, 🙂
Hope you all had a great day. Have a great and safe weekend.
Stay Safe and God Bless!
