1. Another birthday, this one celebrated by going to the Division of Motor Vehicles to have my driver's license renewed. I was edgy going in (my eyesight is not the 20/20 it once was and I hate going to see yet another damned doctor) but everything was smooth once the money changed hands (funny how that frequently seems to be the case). My son and I will go out to dinner, I think ... so I won't have to cook or wash dishes.
2. Useful saying: "Don't (af)fix the blame; fix the problem."
