2 cents on photo radar

OK, no body likes it, we all realize that it is a cash grab tool much like GST. However there are a lot of drivers out there in the Edmonton area trying to 'fool' the camera. I've seen plates that are so old, the numbers are all cracked and you can't read them...so no ticket. Recently I seen a car that had a piece of blue translucent plastic over the entire plate...it was so blue it glowed! Now that's obvious...but he has still driving around with it, so no ticket for obscuring the plate...Last night takes the cake. Driving home, I got behind a truck that had the paint over the raised numbers rubbed/sanded off! You could just make out the raised edge of the vaious letters/numbers! Why aren't the cops stopping these people?????? Too busy re-loading the photo radar camers????
BTW - No, I have not gotten a photo radar ticket...I prefer to be pulled over in BC, and get a ticket writtern out to Mr. Alberta!

You could write a book about Dad! Where he's been, what he's done, who he's met...we even have pics of him with Princess Anne I think...and some other royalty! I wish my life was half as exciting!

You know it's often been rumored in our family that Joe really was a spy and used his adventures as cover ups. Are you sure those photo's weren't croped and pasted.
And what do all those tatoos really mean, secret code perhaps.

Don't get me started on secret stuff...you do realize that he talks in his sleep...the things I know that I shouldn't know! What's a wife to do???
