The 11th Hour

Don't tell A2, but I'm a little worried. Oh, not that I can keep up with him, I'll hang in there long enough to get him over Smith Mountain and back to the lake. He can finish from there if he drops me (he's running smooth as silk and slick as owl poop on a hot tin roof!). No, no, I'm worried about just getting to Arkansas!

See, my Driver's license has expired and I can't get a new one because in one of my 27 moves over the last decade I lost the box that has all that junk in it. Also lost, my teaching certificate, my transcripts, and $400,008 in moving expenses. Man, I sure would like to find my birth certificate! Well on September 8, I finally ponied up the $22.50 and paid the state of Montana to send me another one. Montana, a state in which so few people live that a person actually answered the phone when I called to get a new birth certificate (sadly, it's the same information, they wouldn't change the year by a decade like I asked!). Anyway, thankfully I still had my Visa card when I called because the I would lose that the next day at Universal. No Driver's license, no Visa Card, cash won't last forever.

Speaking of the 11th hour, no time to finish this post, you get what you get!!

A-man, it sounds like you had a rough few days and I just want to say that I'm sorry. I'm sorry for being such a douche to you all these years. On the bright side you are now just like birth certificate.

I think they drop driver's licenses in your check-out bag at Wal-Mart.

With all the stupid moves I see on the road, I swear someone's just giving them away.

Hope to see you in AR tomorrow...

The difference between Obama and I is, he doesn't need a driver's license! He has a driver and he doesn't have to go to the airport. For International travel he's got a passport. He's set. Elitist!

Star, don't worry, I got my license, was worried about my eye test, but it turns out that I studied for nothing! They didn't give me an eye test, yep they are trusting that my eyes are as good as they were when I was 23, (almost 15 years ago!) the last time the state checked my eyes.

So I'm all set. See you in Little Rock!

Your eyes are checked; they're hazel. Duh!
