I have never disliked Mondays, but today is one that about changed my mind.
Retirees are supposed to be relaxed and unhurried. Today was an exception. NCDMV is not a place I enjoy going. Too much room for error on paperwork required to transfer titles.
We processed 4 titles, cost just for paperwork was $550+ and four pieces of paperwork each with $27 notary fees. I Finally did see a smile from the clerk. I never get nervous but my hands were shaking for the first time I can remember. I wouldn’t mention it, but I am sure my family noticed. I don’t like the feeling.
Of course there was a lot more involved, including a Dr. appt. so we finished the paperwork and headed to the house to change tags all round, then made it to the Dr. Office about my ears. We were 15 min. early.
BUT the Dr. wasn’t expecting a hearing test, someone had dropped the ball and said I needed a hearing aid adjustment. So reschedule for Thurs. Morning.
We gave our van to Jack Jr, who in turn gave his van to Mark. Then we finally got a trailer title for a little utility trailer and the cherry on the sundae was we finally transferred the Camaro title. So Sherry is not officially the owner of a 1991 Z28 Convertible. If Spring would act right, it would be time to ride around in it. hahaha. I know, we have no ROOM to complain after seeing Mel’s entry and SNOW! Gary’s report from NY and freezing rain. Lucy is complaining about rain.
SOOOO I won’t complain, ……. Oh yes I will, it ain’t ‘posed to be cool in NC on April 22nd!!!!
Ah, but after all the griping I want to kick myself. I saw a veteran today who was blind and deaf, his sweet wife was directing him around, She even found a willing Vet to take him to the bathroom.
So hey, I have it made. A beautiful wife, that I can see, vehicles I can drive and a healthy family. Life is good.
That adage is right, I complained about no shoes until I saw the man with no feet.
(I have it made)
I can’t help myself, I feel good looking at these old boxy dudes.
