I'm usually pretty good about NEVER TEXTING while driving, but I do talk on my cell -- however, I always use my ear buds.

I took the dogs for a hike up Badger Mountain this morning and on my way back stopped to look at some property for sale. I needed to talk to the real estate agent so since I didn't have my ear buds I was using my speaker phone and holding it out in front of me.

At one point, I couldn't hear her so I put the phone up to my ear for just a second and there he was cming right at me -- a glorious police officer!

Yikes! I dropped my phone to my lap and as he passed he turned on his lights and flipped around. I was sooo BUSTED!

He was very nice and since I haven't had any infractions he gave me a warning and let me go! That was incredibly nice of him as I was totally GUILTY!

So, I learned my lesson. No more. I will not talk at all. And NEVER, NEVER text while driving.
