A weekly-ish blog sharing my series of collages about growing up in the South during the 1950s.

Parents drove me to mandatory appearance in court - five driving violations combined - tenth grade school friends collected money to help pay fine. Drivers without licenses were usually given warnings, except in this case I was also speeding (curfew too early); ran a red light (just barely); resisted arrest (didn't hear siren); and drove wrong way on one-way alley (HALF an alley to get to my house). In spite of many explanations, I was in major trouble at home!
