Running From the Law

We've been running from the law.  For just a wee bit.

There was recently some slight lag time between the time we moved to GA, obtained GA driver's licenses and registered our cars.  There may (may) have been a short period of time where our NC registrations lapsed and we weren't really legal in any state.  I'm not really sure about that... and I'm gonna play dumb.

We've been driving on pins and needles, but luckily there was never a ticket, arrest or car impound!

But, there was that time on our way to Edisto Beach (not Edisto) that we went through a roadblock.  We both almost peed our pants pulling up to the road block.  We both even had the fleeting thought of abruptly turning off on a side road.  We decided to press our luck and thankfully the cops had bigger fish to fry and barely glanced at us.

There were also those other times when we would have to abruptly change our route due to seeing a police officer in our rear view mirror.

OK, so maybe we've been scared to death to drive for the past little while.

After recently writing a hefty check, proving we lived in NC, went through a move, reside in GA, live in our county, own both cars, proved we are legally married, paycheck stubs, proof of insurance faxed to the county (insurance cards not accepted), utility statements, two trips to the county tag office, several applications, a wrong website and a very angry county worker - we now have the proper paperwork in place and are no longer running from the law!  Sigh of relief.


  1. David says that if you were in the country illegally, the county would have just handed you the registrations you need! :P

  2. It's comforting to know that I won't be getting one of those phone calls in the middle of the night. I guess your Bonnie & Clyde days are finally over.
