Police. This time we weren't traveling too fast, we were moving too
slow. Actually, we weren't moving at all. We'd stopped in the middle
of the road to take still pictures of the truck with Jay's house.
Instead of hassling us, the officer asked if we were okay. When we
explained we were taking photos and video, he said, "Okay," and drove
stretch of road where trucks and other larger vehicles hauling loads
(such as houses) are expected to be in the right lane and presumably
traveling at 55 miles per hour.
In our second encounter with the California Police today, we just had
an officer pull up beside us on his motorcycle and signal Jay to pull
over. Maybe it was because we were going about 70 miles per hour or
maybe it was because we were in the wrong lane.
Jay used his "Jedi Mind Tricks," waved, and the officer just continued
down the road.
We've had some interesting "good news & bad news" experiences this
Bad news... We didn't realize we were going over the speed limit until
a police car pulled up next to us. Good news... The officer simply
told us to slow down and went on his way. :-)
Bad news... I forgot my nice Sony camera in a restroom. Good news...
We went back later and someone had turned it in.
