Well, I got my driver's license renewed and my picture is as usual

a real classic.

I look like a thug, complete in orange coveralls.

It is sort of a family thing that goes back about 30 years. Two of my sisters do this, also. They get their drivers license pictures taken dressed like streetwalkers.

It started about 30 years ago when I was in Alaska and had my license renewed when I had just gotten off of a fish boat and hadn't slept in about a week. The picture made me look like a hatchet murderer. About a year later when I went home my sister saw it and thought it was funny so when she had hers renewed she dressed trashy to give me a yuk.

My other sister didn't want to feel left out, so she jumped on the bandwagon.

As my sisters raised their children the kids got wind of out little joke and for years every time there was a family get-together the nieces and nephews would ask to see the licenses and would hold an impromptu contest.

I took first place consistently.

I just got word that the little family joke has gone multi generational.

I found out a niece and a nephew just renewed their licenses in some sort of costume.

I can't wait to see what they did.

  1. This one is a certified cracker! So what's next for the driver's licenses of the new kids? Bunny ears? Cat whiskers? Ah, just avoid getting pulled over by an officer and letting him see how, uhm, awesome, your picture on the license is. In any case, that's one good thing to celebrate after getting a brand new car.
