Community Service


Do you think we look good in stripes? Well we will let you know. Bryce and I like to do things together. You know like camping, hiking, road trips. So when I got a ticket for speeding in a school zone. I knew I could count on Bryce for lecturing me about speeding. Then getting one himself 4 days later. Oh but he didn't only get one ticket he got 2. He always wants to outdo me. So being the good citizen I am I went to take care of the bill. When they gave me the amount and after I awoke from fainting(just kidding kinda). I came home to hide under the covers. The total was $600.00. Oh my. Oh dear. Please NO. What Will I do? A friend suggest I go talk to them. Talk to them about what? I was speeding. So I humbled myself sat in the Judge's room and asked what I could do. The front desk clerk gave us community service. I got 15 hours and well my hubby he got 35!!! So this morning we start. We are going to work the local gun show. Bryce has this idea that he is going to have fun. I am thinking we will be carting around brooms and dust pans. But we will see. Maybe if your in East Texas you will see us on the side of the highway picking up trash. Should I wear a dress? Would they still make me pick up trash? Have you ever had to do community service?

LOL!!!! Still LOL!!!! I'm wondering if you're going to have to wear a bright orange vest??!! Whenever we pass those people, I tell my kids they're prisoners. :) Just think...people may think you two are prisoners too! :) Something about the two of you doing CS together sounds kinda...cool. Like partners in crime or something.... :) Love you guys! Thanks for serving our community!!! By the way..I'm so proud of you for doing this!

Robert did some community service... much more than 15 hours or even 35 hours worth, and it was not bad at all. He worked with a Christian outreach group. The nice thing was he could bring us with him so we were still able to spend time together.
It is kind of cool that you are doing your community service together!

I have gone to court twice. The cop never shows up and I get off scott free, but this is better. You're so smart! Good for you, lead-foot!

You and I we think alike (or rather I'd be the friend telling you to ask for another option;). Even if I was a millionare, I would try and "serve" my way out it. $600 bucks are you kidding me?! One time I offered to spend a night in jail to erase my ticket (the judge wasn't as nice as yours, pay or jail), but it was in the middle of finals and he wouldn't let me bring my books :(. So I reluctantly paid $150....and never sped in a school zone again.
