@yahooey  Actually, our DMV was pretty good.  I don't ever remember waiting more than an hour, maybe 2 hours at the most.

My daughter needed to renew her driver's license.  They were closed for a few months anyway.  

 

They open at 7:30 am, so she left the house at 6 AM.  She got there at 6:20 and the line was wrapped around the corner.  She got into the facility at 11:30 and is finally on her way home.  

 

She said people have chairs, are calling friends to bring them lunch or water - that's totally insane.  What if you have to go to the bathroom?  Work?  Have kids?  

 

People cannot spend all day trying to review their driver's license...


@Bri369 ,

Good morning Preds and friends, happy Friday to one and all.  Here is a live action shot of mtc when I made the mistake of making eye contact with the mirror earlier today:

Well ,i was just outside and neighbors son..was outside(he is 19)  and he got my attention and came across the street to talk to me.

 

His best friend would like to"have my" 2 large tree branches"..and would cut them up  and take them when he comes Saturday to get the other cut up parts of a  neighbors tree..on my burn pile

as 

he and his dad&mom would use them for firewood this winter!!!

 

 

Told Nathan..to tell his friend yes..and to thank him for meHeart

 


 

Very nice, @cowboy sam!   You and your neighbors watch out for each other.  
Reminds me of when I was a little kid, and our old neighborhood...  my mother's sister and family were next door, then my grandmother a couple of houses down from that, and good friends in the houses across the street, and even one street over was another group of homes with folks we knew well from church and school.  

I think back and realize none of us had much material wealth but we were surrounded by love and good will.  

I'm glad you're in a good community, @cowboy sam., and I'll bet they appreciate you as much as we do.  

Thanks for the update.❤️

@Southern Bee,  

I was thinking about the plexiglass...  "outside the box" thoughts... wonder if there are any furniture stores, "junque"/antique shops or auction houses, thrift stores, local builders or crafters, etc., that might have a used but in good condition topper for your table in the right size or that could be cut down if too big.  

Plexiglass is succeptible to scratches, but I understand why it's still often a good choice.  

 

I have my father's very old wood desk, and it's topped with a piece of glass which isn't really very heavy at all (and doesn't usually need to be picked up or moved, so the weight isn't really a concern, and it's that type of glass -- can't remember what it's called -- that doesn't easily fracture or break).  


Fingers crossed that you find a great solution so you can check that off your "to do list".😊
