Wyoming State Troopers

Gotta love then boys!!!!!

In most of the Northern States, there is a policy of checking on any stalled vehicle on the highway when the temperatures drop in the single digits or below.  One morning in March 2004 about 3 A.M. a Wyoming State Trooper responded to a call of a car off the sholder on the outside of the town of Casper

The Trooper located the car, with the engine still running, stuck in the deep snow along the side of the highway.  Pulling in behind it with his emergency lights on, the Officer walked to the driver’s door to find a man passed out behind the wheel and a near empty bottle of vodka in the seat beside him.

The Trooper tapped on the window and the driver woke up, seeing the rotating lights in his rear view mirror and the State Policeman standing next to his car, the man panicked.  He jerked the gearshift into drive and hit the gas. The car’s speedometer was showing 20–30–40 then 50 MPH but it was still stuck in the snow.

The Trooper, having a sense of humor, began running in place next to the speeding, but still stationary car.  The driver was totally freaked, thinking the Officer was actually keeping up with him.  This goes on for about 30 seconds when the Trooper yelled at the man ordering him to “PULL OVER!”.  The driver obeyed, turned the wheel, and stopped the engine.

Once out of the car the drunken driver asked about the Trooper’s special training and just how he could possibly run 50 MPH.  The man was arrested, still believing that a Trooper had outrun his car.




Love Catcher

I was just going through some old photos and here’s a great shot I made LoveCatcherwhile visiting the “The Red Rose” motel in Chiang Rai last year.  I thought this was really funny but very appropriate for a ‘short time hotel’ as the Red was then. 

Now place has been completely redone and in my mind, nothing of its former glory. No longer touted as a short timer, It’s now a “family theme motel”, tame and not as exciting – unless you take your kids there, I’m sure they will enjoy it.   We liked it the first time we went but there were many choices to choose from for room themes – some adult in nature – times change, businesses need to cater to a different audience.

Nothing like telling it as it is – “Love Catcher”
