Success #2

I got my Texas driver's licence today. Well, I have the temporary one and the real one will come in 2 or 3 weeks. It took two tries to get it. This morning I loaded up Kate in the stroller, we dropped Westley off at Chui's (his best friend) house and headed downtown. It was about an hour's walk to the office. There was only a very brief wait and then I laid out all my carefully checked documents. The lady told me I was missing one - proof of vehicle registration. I had proof of insurance, but not registration. I needed both. I told the woman that I had walked and that I didn't have my car with me, so I couldn't just go grab the registration. She was insistent that I needed it. Sigh.

We walked the hour back home (with a stop on campus to see Graeme) had lunch and then loaded into the car and headed back down there. Once again, no wait and this time I had everything in order. At least it's finally done. Only three years late, but done.
