Wow. Almost 24 hours since the last post here. Everybody must be taking it easy before the holiday but me, lol.
I just ran my snowblower into the shop. Like I said, I tried to get it going yesterday, but no spark. My guess is mice again. Hopefully it's nothing too major. He said if he had to order a part it wouldn't be until next week with the holiday and his vendors closing.

Leaving as soon as I finish my coffee. Then it's time to start the preparations for Thursday's dinner.

Leaving? I thought you did your shopping yesterday, or was that today?

I thought he was getting his driver's license renewed today. See what happens when you have four threads to post in every morning?

Yes. Kind of stupid all the duplicate threads we've been getting lately.
Hard to keep up with them all. Especially when you only want to follow one subject.
All this talk of driving and I missed Andy was getting his license renewed.
Thanks.

Just got back from renewing my license. It took me 90 minutes at the RMV. You have no idea how much I HATE TO WAIT for anything.

That seems like a long time, Andy. I don't think it's ever taken me more than twenty minutes.

I just finished putting in my driveway reflectors. I just stuck them in by hand, but they'll be good enough for now in case we get the snow they are calling for tonight.

Starting to think about dinner...

Twenty minutes would have been great! The office is in the adjacent city and was crowded. When you walk in, everyone has to check in at one window to get the necessary forms and a ticket. That was the first hold up. There was some kid there trying to explain why he shouldn't have had his registration and license suspended and his insurance cancelled. That took a while. Then I filled out the form and got a ticket/number to wait my turn.

My ticket said I'd have a 19 minute wait. A quick check showed there are 12 windows so I figured the wait would be reasonable. Problem #1 - half the windows were unmanned. Problem #2 - half the city was waiting for service. I walked out of the RMV with a temporary license in a blindingly fast 90 minutes!

I used to do the renewal the day after Thanksgiving but that's one of the busiest days of the year.
