New License

The picture on my new driver's license looks like my grandmother on a bad day.

Mashed Cauliflower

Green Giant has a frozen side dish that is Cheddar Bacon mashed cauliflower. It is kind of soupy and doesn't have a noticeable Cheddar flavor, but the bacon flavor is good. I think maybe adding some cheese to it would help. It's good enough to have again.

Passing on a Hill

When somebody pulls out to pass with oncoming traffic, I brake to let them in and hopefully avoid an accident close enough to shower me with debris.

Too Windy

 I planned to sit on the porch so I could see the trees that are beginning to bloom, the grass is turning green, the sun is shining...great day!
So I took my eggs and drimmel out on the porch, planning to carve some for Easter. It worked all right until the phone rang. I put the egg down that I was just about finished with and the wind blew it away. It cracked when it hit the porch and all the pieces ended up on the ground.
Too bad about that plan.

Fake Site

I went to renew my driver's license today. The woman in front of me wanted to check to see if her husband's license was renewed as he had done it online. The guy behind the counter said the husband's license had expired. She said her husband had renewed online and had paid. They guy said there are several fake sites and two people had come in the day before who had renewed on a fake site. I felt sorry for them, but I was holding the letter that gave the official website; surely I wasn't the only one to get that letter.

Tax

The gift shop is nonprofit and we have a tax exempt number. But now we have to pay taxes. This is new and I don't understand why the regulations have changed.

Pop

How much are the pops? I looked and didn't register her meaning. Finally I said, 50cents. I don't speak Yankee but I understand a little. Are you from Iowa or Ohio? She said Michigan. The guy with her said he'd told her it wasn't pop.
