Today Was A Day In Court

Today's photo is of Esther, my standard French Poodle. She is one of only 5 Standard Poodles in all of Honduras. The others are all her brothers and sisters. I want to breed her, but the nearest male is in El Salvador.

Esther is my constant companion, except at night. At night she is a deserter, she and Jose share Jose's twin bed. She sleeps at his feet and I never see or hear her unless she hears an unusual noise. Then she is "BRAVO". I never knew that poodles were such good watchdogs.

Esther is really intelligent. In Honduras, when someone comes to visit, they enter the house and kiss you on the right cheek. No one taught her, but she stands up on her hind legs and kisses people when they come in the door. She watched and learned. She is totally spoiled and loves spray whip cream out of a can.

Esther is a Honduran Champion and lacks one point being an International Champion.


The court room hearing today was much as I expected. We arrived early. The judge arrived early and the other party arrived late and since he was only 19 years old, he had to call his mother to come to court, so we had to wait another 1.5 hours.

The judge started reading the paperwork and the corrupt police stated that Jose was at fault, but they also stated that Jose was the one driving the motorcycle. So then the judge walked out of the courtroom and went to find the policeman who then had to re-write the entire accident report. About 30 minutes later, we resumed.

The bottom line is the kid has no money, the mom has no money, the father is not in the picture and the judge found him guilty of driving down the wrong side of the road and following to close and passing where he should not have. He has to pay all of the expenses, but can only pay about $20.00 per month and the expenses are about $550.00 so far and that means 28 months of me having to chase him down every month or I can hire an attorney, put him in jail after who knows how long and go from there.

I arrived home at 1:00 PM wiped out and went to bed. There are some things that I just cannot understand, like why didn't the kid have insurance?

Psalm 34:7 The angel of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear him, and delivereth them.
