On Friday morning the local Highway Patrol Officer was nice enough to come and pick me up from my motel and take me to my car.

She and the Judge had been incredibly helpful and polite and she was now suitable apologetic.

The previous day, while in the back of her patrol car I had noticed a teddy bear. I thought it might for putting children at ease she might come in contact with.

Actually it was a fundraiser for a program to help abused children (Project Hope). For a souvenir of the whole escapade I bought one.

Maybe I’ll take him with me when I go to see though wonderful folks at DMV back in Connecticut.
