Our cops hate paper work. Although in the event you take it to court, they are only too happy to appear against you. That counts as overtime.

Do not expect to get anywhere in a hurry in the early morning or late afternoon. Bumper to bumper cars trying to get to work in a hurry or home. The south shore is notorious for accidents and horrible traffic jams. No worry there about getting a ticket for speeding.

The North Shore is not much better. We have all the folks from NH coming to work in Mass. I do wish they would find work in their own state.
Don't know how I missed this post, but Addie....seriously. Speaking on behalf of my son-in-law who has been a police officer going on 15 years now....trust me. They are NOT "only too happy to appear in court for the overtime"... that is inaccurate on so many levels. I'm wondering where you get your information.

And as far as traffic....MA isn't the only state with bumper to bumper traffic. Have you driven (or been a passenger) on the Southern California freeways in the past few decades? There is no such thing as early morning or late afternoon 'rush hour'. It's constant.

As far as your last statement about wanting to keep the working out-of-staters out of MA...not sure what to even say about that...

Fingers crossed that your "sick" is all gone while the weather is still nice.

We have speed control in this village to day, it is the cadets in training with handler doing it. If you are going over 10 km, you will get fined but any lower, no. it just so they can learn how to handle people in a nice and polite way. Man, they are well trained and nice looking.

My idiot neighbor got caught for drunk driving and it is 8 in the morning.

I have a suggestion for you Addie. MOVE!

We all know how much disdain you have for the police. You've made comments in the past that were so off the wall and inaccurate. I could have spent all day just sitting here poking holes in your comment. You are absolutely clueless as to what their jobs are truly like.You seem to think that they do it for the over time pay. Honey, the over time checks are taxed. Not only that. Over time in a lot of cases are forced. They have no choice but to do it. Or lose their jobs! That's not something you have to worry about. You just made a reference "Our cops" Stop gathering all of them into one basket. I guess you don't know that when they appear in court they are targets? That is one of the most dangerous places for them to be in.

As for your comments: "The North Shore is not much better. We have all the folks from NH coming to work in Mass. I do wish they would find work in their own state."
I DO wish you could get it through your head, people commuting to and from work most likely aren't doing it for kicks,just to annoy you sweet Addie. They most likely have families to support.They to have no choice.

But you do...Why don't YOU relocate?

Just want to ask one small favor; Would somebody come and take the word off of my shoulders, just for a little while?

I have determined that I chose the wrong career. Right nwo, I think I should have gone into the hammock testing business.

Minor complaint:
I have never eaten cheescake, from any store, or from any restaurant, even cheesecake vendors in Pike's Place Market, that domes anywhere close in texture in flavor, as the quality that I can make at home. I've also had some phenominal cheesecake from other homes, homemade of course. Oh, let me state, my late brother in law used to work for a place called - The Cheesecake Factory, out of Beverly Hills, Ca. Their nNew Yourk Cheesecake, with sweetened sour cream topping was absolutely amazing. It was the cheesecake that inspired me to learn how to make a great cheesecake. But that is the only purchased cheesecake I've ever tasted that was truly excellent, and for what you pay for cheesecake, it should always be excellent.

That's all I have to say about that.

+1. Addie has to be one of the least empathetic people I have ever known. It's unlikely she'll move, though, since she's supported by the government. She'll just keep on knocking the government employees who keep her alive, fed and sheltered.

Petty Vents

My bottom drawer freezer is truly annoying me. I have many bad words for it, it won't shut up its door alarm. I can't get the drawer open, despite being about as McGuyver as I can get. I may need to use a hairdryer or blowtorch. It will be emptied and defrosted tomorrow if I can get the dang thing open.
