A Virginia resident

The trip to the DMV was quick and uneventful. I was in and out in 30 minute, and when I came out, I had a Virginia driver’s license. They have a pretty streamlined and efficient system overall. First you get a number. When your number is called, you head off to the window, present your paperwork and pay the fee ($38 for me). You then go to get your picture taken and a few minutes later, they produce your license. I had to take a vision test, but that was easy. I read the letters off so fast that the guy just said, “Uh, good.”

I spent the rest of the late afternoon getting the office set up. I finally upgraded by iPhone to the new software, and downloaded a few applications. One of them is called iBeer, which I think strausmouse would find amusing. When Kelly got home from work, I helped replace the brake light on the back of her car.

We had our first real meal in the new place. I made ravioli tonight, with a spicy pasta sauce. It was good!

After dinner we went for a walk. I spoke to Doug for a while this evening. Also talked to Dad. Found out that Ivan Rodriguez was traded to the Yanks today.

The place is a really shaping up. I took a few pictures tonight and I will post some tomorrow.
