Ever experience this?<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>The Daily Parking Dance Along the Mall<P>Bob Levey, Washington Post<P>...<P>They were all hoping to park illegally on the Mall and get away with it. Rick has run them off, yet again. But they will soon slink back. They know it. Rick knows it.<P>It's the daily parking dance in the heart of downtown Washington. Rick McDonald is, if you will, the dance captain -- a U.S. Park Police officer charged with enforcing the law, which says no parking anywhere along the Mall, between Third Street and 14th Street, until 10 a.m. on weekdays.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><a href=http://washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A14299-2001Jul31.html target=_blank>More</a>

ok, lets see: officer i can't move my car, you see my dog ate my keys, and well, what do you know, i don't have an extra pair. I'm sorry, what? Where is my dog? well, you see, when he swallowed those keys, he got real sick and well, ran off. i tried to follow him, but i lost him. i came back hoping he would come back, but so far, he hasn't. maybe you could look around and see if you find him, while i sit here and read my paper, and talk on the phone. thanks officer, you're the greatest!!!<P>kim

Well, I know a lady who was in ballet class and was speeding along because she was late. The officer pulled her over and was about to write the ticket when she tearfully told him she would be late to ballet class.<P>He was quite surprised - you see, she was 65 yrs. old and still going to class. So he said that if she was still able to dance, he would forget about the ticket this time, he was very impressed. And he let her go. That's a true story.<P>She had at one time been a student at White Lodge - the school of the Royal Ballet, but had to drop out because of illness. However, she did resume her studies a few years later and was still dancing when last I saw her at age 65.<P>It pays to keep dancing.
