I had my very own Old lady's "bachelorette" Party! Otherwise entitled "Madea goes to jail"

I was out there at night. I think it was 1:30 and I was probably speeding through Davidson(doing about 28mph). No kidding, that is speeding in Davidson. His job is at a beautiful old fashioned school, private and classy. It is beautiful over there.
I pulled into the parking lot and in behind me come 3 (count em) 3 cop cars with their lights on. Maam, says the handsome white officer, looking like Enoch's age or so, at least Elyse's age. I said where is my daughter when I need to introduce her to somebody? Why are you here? He said with a flashlight in my face. I don't even remember if I was fully dressed. I run out of the house at 2 am, you know. I didn't even think about that. He was soooo cute. I told him that my husband, that's right I have a husband, I reminded myself:). My husband works here. Oh he said and took my license. After him, a beautiful black officer came with the flashlight. Oh my goodness. They are going to take me to jail. Every other night Ben is right there by the window looking out. This time, he waited till they turned their lights out and waved goodbye to them as they left me. Now I was really fully awake, if I wasn't before. They didn't know that someone worked there. They didn't tell me that I was doing 30 in a 25mph area, I probably was. But they said, they didn't realize anyone worked there at night and it looked suspicious.
Now, we have a school emblem on the car. Shucks! :) I call that, my skirmish with the law! All the same day that we had the flat tire!

I am terrified of police in any color. I get an internal state change and feel fear pulsating throughout my whole being Not quite sure why.. Seems as if you handled yourself well. Please always wear good underwear and Never drive in your pajamas or with poor foot wear.
Thank God you are alright.

I learned that, through that altercation with the law. Now, you tell me. I really didn't know that they were out at that time of the night. The area seems so safe that I was very off guard. I too am usually on guard and afraid of police officers, but, now that I am an old lady and most of the officers are the age of my children, it is kind of fun to be stopped by them. I feel like calling them sonny, but, I don't. Thanks for the tip, I wish you would have told me that before...LOL

Widdle Emmie in outer space school

Emmie jumped on the bus and off it flew out into the atmosphere. There was a set of clouds with turbulence right above the house and it took a few minutes for my Emmie to buckle her seatbelt. They hit the bump hard and it knocked my Emmie out of her seat and she bumped her head. The video camera came on and the monitor looked through and stated, Ms. Emmie, where are you? You are not in your seat. Where are you? I am alright I fell because I hadn’t buckled correctly. Well jump up Emmie we have a long way to go and you have to be buckled there is entirely too much turbulence in the stratosphere for you to unbuckle now. As soon as we are through this weather system there will be straight sailing but right now you must buckle. Emmie scrambled into the seat with intensity and purpose now. She watched every cloud pass her window and her nose was pressed to the window trying to see the top of the house as it drifted slowly out of sight. Soon they were not only out of sight of the house, the sun came out brightly and just as quickly they were putting on the atmospherical breathing apparatus and the outerspherical lights. The ABA and the OL. These precautions were to make them appear to be satellites to the radar as they were out in the ionosphere. Emmie knew all about this now. She had gone to the orientation and had a good breakfast and it took them 20 minutes for her to get out past the atmospherical pull and to feel the zero gravity. It would be 15 minutes before the gravity simulators would take effect, a glitch in the system which was being worked on. Until then, they enjoyed the couple of minutes of floatation, while being connected to the seats by belt. The first thing they saw everyday was the strataflotsam. The items which had been dumped into the atmosphere by earlier generations. What would their generation do about this ecological waste area that remained floating above their heads? This was a question for the generations. For now it was the area that they had to guide through on the way to school.

My little Emmie

ran to the bus on the first day of the last year of school. 2 buns on the side of her head. She kissed me and ran at dawn to the bus. She was starting the adventure of a lifetime. I would never see that little girl again, she was going to woman school!

Are you going to Mary Immaculate?

Apricots, Chocolate Cherries and Pie,

Remember me to the one who lived there,

He once was a true love of mine,

Tell him to buy me an acre of land,

Apricots, Chocolate Cherries and Pie,

Between the muddy Hudson in Jamaica Bay,

Then, He’ll be a true love of mine,

Tell him to sow in it seeds of pure cream,

Apricots, Chocolate Cherries and Pie,

And build Ice cream mountains and buildings of whipped cream,

Then, He’ll be a true love of mine,

Tell him to reap them with sickles of M&M’s,

Apricots, Chocolate Cherries and Pie,

And chew bubble gum and eat till we’re done,

Then, He’ll be a true love of mine.

Tell him to run it off down the motor parkway,

Apricots, Chocolate Cherries and Pie,

After your done 50 pushups

and jog down the West Side Highway,

Then he’ll be a true love of mine…

(Don’t wait for me today dad, The kids are sick again, My tummy’s bulging again, My heart is aching again, And now there’s no love there…)

He once was, a true love of mine….So, Girls, I do beg you don't miss your Daddy,Apricots, Chocolate cherries and Pie,You have one short chance to see him on this side, Go visit him and let your light shine.
