A passport won't be good enough? What if you don't drive, like my husband?

In NY state you can request the issuance of a federally recognized identity card. Would not be surprised if the day will come when such a card will be required to buy a loaf of bread.

My FL driver's license was set to expire on my birthday this year. To my surprise (being no spring chicken), all I had to do was send them a check in the mail and I received my renewal that's good until 2020. No tests, either driving or written. I guess they'll worry about my age if/when I run into something.

Happy Birthday, Bill!
I apologize for the lateness of this.
I gotta check in here more often.

Oh don't worry by 2020 they will require us to get a micro chip in our arm then we won't need those silly plastic cards!

Will you have to go to Thailand to have the chip installed, like with US passports?
