    1. I remember a state trooper telling me that very thing when he pulled me over in Ohio. Thanks for the compliment, GP. As it turned out the state trooper meant it in a different way. 😁

      3. We were driving down here to FL, going through GA, when a stereotype, overweight southern Sheriff pulled us over. He looked at dad’s license and started calling him Everett, you were speeding. Dad said, I was following the speed of traffic and the cars in front of me and behind all had GA license plates. The sheriff said, Everett, that’s why only you were pulled over. Would you like to pay me the fine or return for your court date? Dad asked him – are you still writing out that ticket? He said Yes. Dad pulled out his wallet and said, then you can call me Mr. Smith!
        It may not sound funny on paper, but looking out at that stereotype Sheriff with the southern drawl and Dad doing his best to curb his aggravation, it was hysterical then.
