    Good morning America, how are ya? This is going to be quick, as I (my wife, too) are busier than the well known cat in a litter box! :) I haven't quit this forum, but life is coming at us fast and I just don't have much free time right now. It looks like this will continue for about another...

    Trailrider, I know exactly what you mean about remembering something from your childhood when really young. I have several memories from when I was very young and they are just as vivid as if they happened yesterday! They are very special and I hope they never fade!

    Good afternoon America, how are ya? Well, after doing a little more reading and making a phone call, we found out all we had to do was take a vision test, get our picture taken and pay the Man to get our driver licenses. That would give us a temporary license and our permanent one would come...

    Good morning America, how are ya? It's 68° and cloudy with a high of 75° and between 40%-80% chance of rain and thunderstorms most of the day. Going to get our Tennessee driver licenses today. We should be able to get by with just a vision test and giving them some monetary acknowledgement...
