And together we learn

Bu Xing!!

Steve left this morning and my sister graciously took him to the airport. Somehow, 3 kids in a compact car just doesn't leave much room for luggage. He forgot a very important doohickey, so we piled in to race it to him at the airport before his plane took off. No problem.

I so got pulled over for speeding. Dang it!! But as the officer was writing up my ticket, I couldn't help but think he looked awfully familiar. When he came back to my window, I asked him if he was Elder F., and didn't he serve a mission in Taiwan with me? Ok, so he didn't remember me. But apparently a little connection goes a long way. He changed the ticket to a warning, then instructed me sternly to slow down. In Chinese.

Yet another blessing for serving a mission!!

I once got saved from a ticket when my daughter reccognized the cop as the father of her play mate! Yep, knowing someone always helps! Lol

How funny! It sounds like he had a sense of humor which means your day was better for not getting the ticket! LOL! :D

Becca, how wonderful. Sorry you had to go all the way to the airport. One time my husband took both sets of our keys to the airport. Luckily, I realized it before his plane took off. Now I can't qite remember how I got the keys from the airport. I'll have to ask him.

I had forgotten that you did your mission in Taiwan. Do you know we are adopting our baby boy from Taiwan?

Wow, lucky you. I don't think they CAN change it to a warning here once they started writing the ticket.
