A quality haul, if not a huge one: Idaho, Georgia, and Missouri.
The map now has a belt across its midsection, and the East Coast is finally complete. Why does it seem I spot Tennessee every time I turn around? It’s not always the same car either. Is this a trend?
On my wish list for July: Alabama, Montana, Iowa, and New Mexico.
Massachusetts wants you to renew your driver’s license every five years. 2012 was my year. In 2007, I was exempted from taking the eye test because I had a note from my optometrist. I had a note from my optometrist because the vision in my right eye was about 20/400, thanks to the two retina reattachment surgeries I had in 2004 and the cataract that resulted therefrom.
At that point I stopped cussing all the “half-blind drivers” on the road because I was a half-blind driver and my driving record was stellar. (Ask my insurance company.) Now I just cuss the blind drivers on the road.
The cataract was removed in 2008 so I can now see pretty well out of that eye. Still, my vision is pretty funky — my eyes don’t work together all that well — so license renewal, with the required eye test, always inspires a little anxiety.
Not this year. This year I discovered that I was eligible to renew online. Which, of course, I did. So I’m good to go till June 8, 2017.
