Four More Years
Somehow I passed the eye test again and got my driver's license renewed without restriction. The new one came in the mail yesterday.
The eye test always worries me as the date approaches. Actually I start worrying about the next license as soon as I get the last one. In fact this time I got it renewed early in case they sent me away with directions to the nearest Lenscrafter. I have one eye that's pretty good but one that's 20/40, which is at the limit. I don't like having to wear glasses, or seat belts, or come to a complete stop. The great and enlightened state of New Mexico thankfully issues licenses for four years.
Underneath the licenses, by the way, is the registration renewal for my Freightliner, just to give you an idea. I gladly pay these fees and multiple kinds of taxes knowing I'm helping preserve the good union jobs of people who won't answer their phone when I call.
