Today was slightly sobering. I had to surrender my driver's licence which I obtained on my 17th birthday when the local sergeant of police got me to drive him up to get his morning paper. That was in 1965, and I was in Fifth Form in High School - not long out from doing my Leaving Certificate. But ... who's counting?
Not sobering sobering, just slightly sobering. I have not driven for 12 months. I only surrendered it because it was due for renewal. Anyways, I asked if I could get a Photo-Id.
And blow me down - it was free!
