Here I am hanging with my parents. On the agenda yesterday was an appointment at the Dept of Motor Vehicles to finally get a handicap plate for my mom. She managed to get a hanging placard sometime in January, and while there they gave her forms for getting the permanent plate, and she got an appointment for Feb 28, conveniently while I was here (though I doubt that actually figured into the planning.)
Off we go to the DMV, filled-out forms in hand, arriving at our appointment 10 or so minutes early. They see us fairly promptly, where they tell us that they changed the forms as of Feb 1! Thanks, person who gave us forms in mid January, for giving us forms that would be invalidated in 2 weeks! That was so helpful. I quickly filled out the new forms from the data on the old forms (really, it was just rearranged info, WTF is the point?), and we got the plates, same day service, so it wasn't a complete waste of time; they could have told us to go home and come back next month, when they no doubt would have changed the forms again!
It's already been useful; we went to a restaurant for lunch today and stopped at the store yesterday.
Later that day I went on a walk for exercise, and I encountered a 100 foot stretch of bike route. No bike route before it, no bike route after it, just 100 feet of bike route... It was near the entrance to a rail-trail, so maybe it wasn't completely stupid, but it sure did seem that way... I took a picture and maybe I'll post it after I get home, along with a picture of the weirdest duck I've ever seen, encountered at a nearby park.
So my mom is doing noticeably better than at my previous visit. Which is really excellent.
