And now, time for a short poetry break as we head into the Christmas season:
Roses are red,
It's Christmas time.
Obey the law,
To avoid a big fine.
Liquor is fine,
To enjoy with your meal.
But don't over do it,
Or your tires may squeal.
My buddies wear blue,
And not Santa red.
Don't drink and drive
Please use your head!!
JOKE OF THE DAY
Cst. Stanton and Cst. Paydli were out patrolling and came across a speeding vehicle and tried to stop the vehicle but the speeder would not pull over. The speeder crossed into Ontario so Cst. Paydli, the junior member who was driving, stopped. Cst. Stanton asked, "Why did you stop”? Cst. Paydli said, "Well he is an hour ahead of us now, we will never catch him.”
