Turkey Rolls Stuffed with Asparagus; love from Bologna — 6 Comments

  1. My husband use to get tickets from Holland, for either driving the bike lane, or turning on a red light. He finally figured out the difference between the BIKE green turn arrow and CAR green turn arrow!

    • It took us awhile, after we moved, to remember not to turn on red lights which is legal in MN (after a full stop, of course), Now we are very careful – we thought!

  2. Years and years ago now, I went to the Ann Arbor Art Fair. Perhaps you’ve heard of it? There are thousands and thousands of people who go and parking is at a premium. Because of this, we left early on a Sunday. I drove, actually found a spot on the street and grabbed it. While the streets were lined with parking meters, I didn’t see any that had time on them so, since most other cities in Michigan do this, I thought that Ann Arbor also did Not charge on Sundays. A couple months later, I received a parking ticket in the mail from the city which, had I paid it within 10 days of issue, it would have been $25. However, since it took so long for them to mail it out, it was up to $175 with all of the late fees. I mailed them a $25 check, told them I would never attend anything again there that required parking of any kind and if they thought to collect the remainder of their late fees, since they held the ticket up for so long, I would make sure the newspapers and TV stations knew what was going on.

    They didn’t collect the remainder, or try, and there were never any warrants issued.

    And I’ve never gone back.

    These turkey rolls look delicious! Did you say you grow your own asparagus? I think I’m going to plant some this year. I finally got to the rhubarb patch/raspberry patch area and got that cleaned out this week. First time in the four years almost that we’ve been here. I’ll be making rhubarb cobbler this weekend 😀

    • After we had lived in Ireland for awhile I got a notice of a bench warrant for my arrest in the mail. Apparently, while driving my car in the weeks before we left the US, my hubs got a $6.00 parking ticket at a state park. Since we were leaving he didn’t bother paying it or telling me about it, For years, every time I went back (which was several times a year as I was still working in the US) I was the world’s most perfect driver, living in terror I would be stopped in my rental car, then hauled off to jail, All for $6.00.
      As to Ann Arbor – the prudent thing for them to do would be to waive all parking fees for the duration of the fair to encourage visitors. Why are bureaucrats never logical?
