Saturday 15th January 2011…….yes soccer morning!!!

I took Sara to her class at 8.30am this morning and on the way home was stopped by the Transit Police!!!!


I admit I was at fault I wanted to get gas and the station was on the other side of a two lane road and as I was driving Bonita through a small pedestrian cross walk I was pulled over.  I was in the wrong and the two policeman asked to see my drivers licence…I don’t carry it with me but I do have a photo copy of it with me on the scooter…I showed it to them and I think they told me I had committed an offence and the fine was 200 pesos… at this point I acted dumb and told them in English not understand!!!!  Then they wanted to take my licence plate to their office or pay the fine and again I said no understand and they said  I owed 200 pesos and you know my reply…..they just looked at each other and said something and took off…..a good lesson for me!!

Came home and sat on the couch and watched two live soccer games from England!!
