Good News,

I haven't been very active lately due a troubling glitch in my recovery. I had a birthday last month, and that triggered a driver's license renewal. Didn't think that would be a big deal, but it turned out that Meniere's Disease can disqualify a person from renewal. I send in my renewal and they sent back a letter demanding a current DOT physical before they would process it. To get past the DOT examiner, he demanded a letter from the treating physician that I wouldn't be restricted from driving. I had to go back to that specialist and get current on my treatment and condition. All that has taken about 8 weeks. I obtained the documents and passed my DOT exam today!

I wanted to go out with the mobile billboard during all of this recent amnesty talk, but obviously that wouldn't have been a good idea with a driver's license in limbo. They might let illegals off with a ticket, but I'm thinking they might just seize the truck and trailer in my case.
Now I still have to raise some funds to get back out there. One step at a time

PS: Even if your license is out of date for a few days, many businesses and government officials don't want to accept it as ID. I had to renew my passport during this period, and the post office didn't want to accept my license because it was one week past the valid date. Be forewarned. Just because illegals get by without ID, doesn't mean bureaucrats and public officials extend the same courtesy to citizens.

Sounds like your feeling better. A new license can do that.

They seem to have a million and one hoops to jump through now. I'm glad to here you made it.

Good to hear that the license went well. Being with out the ability to drive would be the end of the world.
Sure hope that health thing will get better.

I have noticed that I can not post with the bold print lately. Can some one correct that, or at least tell me why it will not print?

Maybe it is because you touch yourself?

Just kidding. I'm not sure. I was able to get it to write bold by highlighting my text and hitting the "B" button at the top.

Maybe you wore it out, Rim. I don't know either, as you can see, it worked for me.

Rim05,

I just noticed on another message board bold can be turned on or off. Maybe there is something in your control panel?

It says what you can do at the bottom of this page on mine.

I'm glad to see you back.

Do you have a class 1 license? Otherwise, how did the DMV get wind of your illness?

Personal experience: There is twice that I was not in possession of valid government issued picture id, even though I had a valid right to drive. It took some time to get the card, and it really screwed me for employment or doing any sort of business.

I just noticed this. Why not, is it because it might make the comedian pick on you?

Yes. Class A, with endorsements. I'm required to have a DOT physical every two years, however thanks to Meniere's, it's going to be every 1 year now. They had me either way. Take the physical to renew, or downgrade the license and have to fill out a new application where they ask the same question, which would have brought the same result, except take even longer(DMV is not dumb.Why is he downgrading his license? ). I was fortunate to have passed.
Plus, without the commercial class A, I would be out of class to tow the mobile billboard

I put the admonition up for fun, but there is one time I did show up wearing a bright, red shirt. Every comedian who came on was all over me like white on rice.

For a lot of things, it's best to just blend in with the crowd or not fit prejudemental profiles, like driving a car that looks like a tweekermobile.
