Makin' It Real

I just came in from putting my Wyoming license plates on my car. I've had them for a long while now, but just haven't gotten around to getting it done.

In the last seven months Gwennie, my car, has worn "Taxation Without Representation" D.C., plates, "Greenie" Colorado plates, and is now sporting some shiny county 2s.

So, it's official!

Or at least nearly.

On Friday I went to get my new Wyoming driver's license as well. THAT will be weird. But I won't have to worry about it for roughly three to four weeks, which is how long it will take for me to get it in the mail!

I forgot this about Wyoming. I assumed I'd walk out with a stunning new I.D. in hand, like you do in D.C., but nope. Instead I have a paper version and my old D.C., license to tide me over 'til the real thing arrives.

I do get to keep my D.C., license, which is nice. Since I'll very likely never live there again it'll be neat to have proof that I did.

If only the picture weren't so terrible and my weight was correct...

I still have one of my Wyoming licenses, I think. When we moved to Colorado, they make you give up your old one, so I'm surprised you got to keep your D.C. one when you moved to Colorado. The pictures are never any good on those. Now you'll draw attention out of state because of your Wyoming plates. Everyone loves those.

I don't think you ever got a Colorado drivers license though did you Kimberly? And Wyoming doesn't care, they even punch VOID in your old one when you have to renew it and give it back to you for a souvenier!
P.S. I DO like your new background, way better than mine. I tried like 10 and still am not satisfied.

That's what I liked about Wyoming. All you had to do is look at that number to know where somebody was from. :)
