Back to School -- Speed Traps


Yep, it's that time of year again... We had tax free weekend recently, and back-to-school sales are in full swing, but another sure fire sign of the impending school year, especially if you live near a school. In my case, there are two, no, three elementary schools and the high school in close proximity. The middle school is too far to actually affect us.


So today as I turned onto the main thoroughfare, there were two motorcycle cops in the church parking lot with their eagle eyes and radar guns. School starts next Monday and it's time to remind motorists just exactly what the speed limit is!

School buses will be out en masse soon too! Only Sonshine ever rode the bus to and from school, and that was only during middle school for like a semester. Once he got to high school, it was before-school band practice and after school band practice or football games, or, in the off season, it was his favorite after school activity keeping him there until six o'clock.

Do I miss those days? Not so much the days themselves, but certainly the reason for them: Sonshine.
