Anyhow, we've made it all the way to Iowa safe and sound. And I'm really glad my new name didn't confuse you when you checked my license & registration. I was worried that you might think I stole Mr. Ex's car. That would have been a big adventure...and that was why I couldn't stop laughing.

The Check is in the Mail
Dear Officer Jorgensen,
I apologize for this picture. It's not you. Not even close. But it's the only photo of a Wyoming highway patrolman that I could find. It was a weirdly entertaining experience to be stopped for speeding just outside of Rock Springs. You were very professional and it was nice of you to give us a discount for wearing our seat belts. We always wear our seat belts, and found it interesting that Wyoming puts a lot of effort into getting the word out about seat belts. What's up with Wyoming folks that they don't buckle up?
I'm imagining a cowboy getting into a dusty pick-up truck and grumbling, "I don't buckle up when I ride my horse, do I?!"
