For those of you baffled by my cryptic cursive handwriting:
“Dear city of Blanding,
Enclosed is a check for the speeding ticket I received while driving through your lovely little town.
I just wanted to point out to you that I am paying the speeding ticket not because you threatened to send a warrant for my arrest, but because of the kindness the officer that pulled me over showed me. He was doing his job, and I did come into town faster than I should have. But he showed me kindness, politeness, professionalism, and when it was over, directed me to an excellent coffee shop.
There are many unpleasant experiences in life, getting a speeding ticket is vexing enough. I am grateful it turned into a kind exchange.
I hope Blanding uses the funds well.
And I wish you all a beautiful day.
