Well I have always been sort of a rebel so It doesn't surprise me in the least to find out I have indeed been breaking the law. (the old gal was right...who knew) well I could remedy the problem by buying an orange vest,buying a permit that is only good for 2 days a year for 200.00 smackers and taking out a million dollar liability policy or I can face the consequences of a maximum of a 200 dollar class c misdemeanor fine. I have decided to take my chances in a limited way of course. I will scale back my operation..I might even quit doing it...yeah thats it thats the ticket......Im sorry I am a terrible liar...lol
