Red Letter Day!

My son got his license and his first checking account.  Good deal.

Spot doesn't seem to be feeling well today.  He really hates it when I debride his dog bite.  It sure is taking a long time to heal up - which is making me even more mad at those dogs.

I had a long day.  We drove out to Pahoa in search of shorter DMV lines, but the one person who gives road tests for driver's licenses out there was out sick.  I decided to pay the registration out there, since we'd driven out so far.  The guy gave me the wrong month sticker;  I looked at it and thought, "Oh well, he must know what he is doing."  I should have asked, because we drove back into Hilo to check if they had any testing spots open and while we were waiting, the DMV guy called me and told me I had to come back to exchange the sticker.  It is quite far in another direction from our house.

The whole time, we were driving the kids' car - which is 19 years old and the AC is so broken it blows hot air and there is no way to turn it off.  Hot air on a summer day - not fun.  Anyway we left the house at 6:30 and got home at 1 pm and then I had to go deal with that gnarly wound on the poor lamb.

Your son is just awesome! He has accomplished so much this year, which is only half over! Congratulations to him (and to his proud Mom)!

Thanks, Daph. It seems like just yesterday he was 5 and you were making him that paper cart (he still remembers that, by the way.)
