Hmmm, I see him as the person who heads up an organization to eliminate drivers whith a lot of points (for violations) on their license

Hopefully she meant eliminate to mean take away their driving privileges, not actually eliminate the person altogether!

We don't get reminders. When I renewed late some years ago, I had to retake the written test. After DH's license expired this year, they caught it going through security at the airport. Thankfully it was a domestic flight, and they let him through anyway. He didn't have to retake the test.

If I had to retake the test I would fail.

Since we moved here I've wanted to mount a huge hatchet on the front bumper of my car. Every time someone coming out of a street or parking lot to my right intrudes into my lane, hoping they can then gain the pity of the traffic going opposite direction, and blocks my lane for ages (because the opposing traffic just won't let them in) I want to hatchet their car so they can't drive anymore. Drivers in the towns either side of ours do this all the time because of the narrow roads and street parking. "Me First! Me First!" ARGH!

If I have to turn left into heavy traffic I either go around a block or two so I can turn at the light or I turn right, then left into a street, and do a 180 so I can then turn in the direction I need to go.

Oh, and I need a huge light-up sign on my rear bumper. It would say "I refuse to get a ticket just because you want to go faster". Don't even start on tailgaters...

I'm heading out to the garage to clean a few things and move some of the Christmas stuff around so I can reach it in the next week. Warmish today (although I frittered away the 58 degree weather and now have only upper 40s) but the cold is moving in for a while again soon. I swear Mother Nature is going through menopause...
