  1. Great story. I think that’s my favourite of yours so far. Heh, I didn’t know they didn’t even make you do a road test then. Times sure have changed…

  2. As usual, I loved the story, Jim. Thanks for reminding me of the experience of so many of my small town contemporaries in the same era as you. It has inspired me to post a story about my very different experiences getting my driver’s licenses – while in college in Minnesota, in Germany through the US Army and, much later, in Mexico. That is, if I can find the time to get at the computer. We moved to a larger apartment in our complex and, after almost four weeks, I’m finally seeing the end in sight of the moving-in process. Our blog has certainly suffered from inactivity in the meantime. Thanks for the inspiration.
