Well, guys.... I caved.
I've been holding out for ten years now, but the time has come. This is hanging from Goldie's rear view mirror:
Yep. A handicapped parking permit. What can I say? I'm a slow learner. It only took me a decade to decide that I may need one.
And I have to admit that while I have taken the enormous step of filling out the paperwork, and picking up the tag...I have yet to actually use it. I hung the tag simply for this picture. Goldie was parked in a non-handicapped spot at the time.
What kind of weirdo takes the time to jump through the state DOT hoops for a special permit, drives TO THE DOT to pick up said permit, and then doesn't use it?
But I will -- eventually. I can't be rushed with all of this stuff. I need to ease into things. Gee. Maybe I should drive around with the tag in my glove compartment for the next month or two...
