TAKING OVER THE KIDS TEMPORARILY - NEPHEWS

THE KIDS






These pictures are the last one of many I took of the three babies I grew to feel as if they were my own babies. They filled my life with so much love and happiness. It’s going to take some time to get use to living without them!

I left for San Antonio Monday of last week for two reasons; to leave my cousins kids, and to stay with her because she had to have an operation on her uterus. When she had her 3rd baby, he weighed 10 pounds 2 ounces! The doctor should have performed a caesarean section, since she’s so tiny, but he didn’t, so she was terribly messed up internally. The operation was major.

I’m feeling a little down because I miss the kids so much, but I’m happy because they’re back with their mother who loves them so much, and I’m relieved in a way, because school started today, and it would have been so incredibly hard on me to take them to school, go to work, and then pick them up at different hours.

I took one of the white kittens with me, and they’re all very happy to have him. They named him Oscar. I still haven’t caught the last of the cats to have fixed and micro-chipped. I’m sure she’s pregnant again, but this coming Saturday, I’m going to trap her, even if it takes me all day long, because there is no way I can have 5 more kittens in my life! People around here are really and truly starting to look at me funny. Not too long ago, I tried to go for a little walk, and all of them were following me like little puppies! I had to go back home for fear a car would run over them. Everywhere you look at my house, you see cats on trees, the roof, bushes, my car, my porch, everywhere, and they’re all looking at me! I read that there’s a woman in Russia, I think, that has 133 cats, and if I’m not careful, I’ll be making world news, too! Twenty some cats is really an awful lot!

On my way back from San Antonio yesterday, I was pull over by a cop! I was going 103 miles per hour, and speed limit is 80! It was so embarrassing, because I passed all these cars along the way, then they all caught up to me and saw me getting a damn ticket! The man made me get out of my car and walk to him. I suppose he did this to see if maybe I was drunk or something. I kept seeing all the cars pass and look at me. I know for a fact each and every one of them had a big grin on their faces yelling har har at me!! The officer, who was HUGE, was very courteous with me, and told me that 103 miles an hour was a bit too much, and the important thing was for me to get to my destination safely. I know! I DESERVED that ticket.

I really love San Antonio. It is so beautiful, and perhaps someday, I’ll sell my house and move over there, or to São Paulo, Brazil.

Strange, but I really and truly missed you all!

Missing those 2 kids is a VERY good sign!! That means you love them and have a great relationship with them. I understand the pain, but that is a very good sign.

103.......Thank goodness you are safe.....

Take care.

Nascar Racers Cup
Yes, I do believe those kids and I bonded very well. The house seems so empty without them. They say time heals everything, and in this case, I hope it will soon.

Yes, 103. I'm such a great driver that I'd easily beat Earnhardt Jr. for the Nascar Racers Cup! I'm surprised that guy who gave me the ticket didn't at least compliment me on my superb driving when he shoved that ticket into my hand! ;o)

Your gonna miss the kids, but you did a great thing for your family.

I have at least one person on my friends list I would classify as "the cat lady" You are far behind her.

103, doesn't the guy have a sense of humor.

We LOVED Mexico last weekend and had the time of our lives. Great food and wonderful times.

"cat lady"
There isn't anything I won't do for family and dear friends. I know you and yours are the same.

I'd really love to just take a peek at that "cat lady" who has me beat! Bless her heart!

No, the man had no sense of humor at all. I was going to give him some silly excuse for speeding, but when I saw him giving me the Eye of the Tiger, I kept my mouth shut! I'm no fool! heh heh

So you went to Mexico! I'm glad you all had such a good time. The food is great, as is the culture!

Glad you are back in one piece. Do you have to get clearance from
the control tower to travel at 103?? At least it makes the drive
shorter.

Now all you have to do is find enough other people looking for a kitty
and you will be lonesome.....

Bet you take a while to get used to the kids being gone. ((((Hugs))))

Thank you Sweety Pie!

I pride myself in my driving skills. I'm a pro! heh heh

That stop that cop made me do, made the the traveling a hell of a lot longer, 'cuz I drove all the way home like a turtle!

Yes, it is going to take a very long time to get over missing those kids.

Todos nostros te extrañamos, especialmente yo!

Sabes que me da mucho gusto que te hayas encariñado con tus pequeños sobrinos, eso dice mucho de ti y de ellos, en verdad tu prima es afortunada en tenerte.

Por otro lado ir con una corte de gatitos si se presta mucho a un par de sonrisas extrañadas!

Cuidado con la velocidad!!!

El amor y cariño que les tengo a esos niños no es difícil, porque se portaron como unos angelitos conmigo.

No tengas cuidado. Nunca dejare que la velocidad pase más de lo que se permite ¡Oye! Como cuesta dinero un boleto del tráfico como el policía me dio! haaa

¡Besos Amigo!

Wanna have some fun?
Actually, you don't deserve it. There was no injured party for one, among many other thing. Plus, you have the common law right to travel. And just fyi, if it has been more than three days, then you have accepted the ticket as truth and are in dishonour, and I'm sure you have a copy of the ticket and not the original, so that also shows that you are in a position of dishonour. But anyhow, if you want to have some fun with the ticket without it turning into a dispute, then you can send them one of the following letters:

(1) NOTICE OF DISCHARGE OF CITATION AND REQUEST FOR CLARIFICATION

OR

(2) CONDITIONAL ACCEPTANCE OF OFFER

Of course, I'll write out what's actually in the letter, but some of the things I'd write in there are directly related to the ticket. So what does the ticket say? -- if it was blank. Is the title on the document 'ticket' or 'citation'? Or something else? And so on. Basically, I don't need your info, just the wording on the ticket. And is there anything written on the back?

Is it hand written? If so, is it legible? (i.e. Good hand writting and not scribble) If you have to struggle to make out some of the letters, then it's scribble. If there is any mistake in capatilization or spelling it can be discharged on that alone -- sometimes. For example, they have to capitalize your entire name because they're actually issuing the ticket to the person and not the human being, even though they handed it to you. Basically you're the administrator for that person, so you are liable for anything issued to or imposed upon that person. That person is a fictional entity just as is the municipality the officer is representing.

Lastly, did you have to sign it?

Again, you can try this for fun, and the worst thing that can happen in the end is that you go do your defensive driving to discharge the ticket or use money to discharge the ticket (i.e. pay the fine). And they can't charge extra fees.

Basically, a ticket is nothing more than a debt imposed upon you. It's a bill, hence the 30 days to make due. And just like any debt, it needs to be discharged to balance out their books. They made a "tick" in their books, hence the word "ticket." A document representing a tick against you. It's actually an archaic term, but the fundamentals are still in place. But anyhow, it would be fun to see your "ticket" discharged by a mere letter.

Re: Wanna have some fun?
Aye Dave! I couldn't sign it fast enough! All I wanted to do was get it over with fast, so I could leave before more of the cars I passed, saw me standing there staring straight up at that officer!

I'm paying for that ticket tomorrow! That guy that gave me the ticket had the body of Mike Tyson! I kid you not! Although, he was as courteous as could be, I was ASKERD of him! heh heh

There's a saying here in Texas. "Don't Mess with Texas," and that officer is the epitome of what that saying means! Anyway, I honestly did deserve it, because I wanted to get home as fast as possible, and that's really not an excuse.

Yes, what a horrible feeling! I did pretend I hadn't seen him and continued driving away, while to Santa Lucia to blind him for just a couple of minutes until I made my escape! It's obvious Santa Lucia felt I deserved a ticket. :o(

HOLY ROLLER of a aunt
Don't be. I was knee deep in caring for my cousin and her kids, plus I got stuck with this HOLY ROLLER of a aunt that preached the Bible to me for 12 whole hours in a matter of two days! I promise to God I'm telling the truth! How I wish you'd have been there to handcuffed her and taken her to the Funny Farm! Oh, I did manage to go to Sea World!

I get lost in SA with all those freeways that are under construction, and only ventured out around Bitters street, and that was to go to some grocery store called HEB I think, and Walgreen's. I did go to a nearby Target to buy some stuff I needed, and looked around to see if I'd see you. Of course, I didn't know which Target you worked at, but I still looked! :o)

One day you and I will meet.

Only 103?
Most of the readers here do not know the size of West Texas and 103mph is just getting started. Dang it takes days to cross that state even at 103mph. I can imagine driving for days and not getting to one's destination. Like from Boise to Vegas, it is 10hrs at 80mph and one only drives in 2 states.

Glad to hear that you are OK.

Love the picture of the two little angels. I can see why you love them.

Give away more of them cats. The answer to all your problems. Use Craigslist.

Re: Only 103?
The highways are as beautiful and safe as can be in Texas, and just can't imagine why in the world the speed limit can't be 100 miles per hour! And you're right, 80mph is like going at a snails pace in such an ENORMOUS state as Texas!

Thank you for being happy that I'm okay!

Oh Ron, they are little angels. I had just given them their bath in that pic, and when I went in to check on them, I found them asleep.

I wish I had the heart to give more cats away, but I'm terrified I'll end up giving them to someone that won't care for them as they should. At least kitten Oscar will be in the most loving home possible!

The problem with me is that I'm both a dog and cat gal. Thank God there aren't any elephants around here! :o)

Conflicting emotions is something I'd rather live without. I'm doing well in dealing with them. Nobody can take the place of a mother, and they're happy to be back with her.

103 mph should be the norm! Here they make us these wonderfully safe highways, and they expect us to go at a snails pace, when they should permit us to travel like a roadrunner! :o)
