I love getting mail. We’re so new here that we haven’t ended up on dozens of junk mail lists. So usually, when we find something in the mail box it’s fun.

Not today.

Today I got an automatic speeding ticket.

For doing 110 in a 100 zone.

For my American friends who are in the dark ages of non-metric, that’s like doing 70 in a 65. Pffft.

This was on my 7 hour drive from Auckland back to Palmerston North. I just wanted to get home after being away from Beautiful Wife for a week. Have you no romance in your soul, New Zealand?

Gonna cost me $88 to get right with The Kiwi Man. Fight the power!
