License to Drive

It's almost my birthday! But that's not the most important detail.

I was cleaning out my wallet today in preparation for a trip. I took out all the cards: library, gift, National Weather Service Severe Weather Spotter, driver's license...

Whoa, back up the truck! That's right, in just another four days, my driver's license expires, so I'll be making a stop at my local long line driver's license bureau in the next couple of days.

In the town where I grew up, local newspaper columnist Dale Huffman used to remind readers quarterly to pull out their licenses and check the expiration date. That's what I'm doing for you--pull out your license, check the date, and if it expires soon, circle a date during the week before on your calendar. Don't get relegated to Chief Bell Ringer, as I was in the photo. Take the driver's seat.

And thanks for the birthday wishes.


  1. Mine is up in October! And do have a wonderful birthday!

  2. Wow, you are quick, Jennifer! Glad you're ahead of the game. I just happened to glance at the expiration date...

  3. Thanks for the reminder, but I just renewed earlier this year. :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. Always nice to see you.

  4. Gee, it's almost your birthday again. Happy birthday!
    Mine is coming up in a couple of months. Guess I ought to get out the old license and see when it expires.
    Cute photo!
