Clicking the pics is something you can do inside where it's cool.
I grew tired of worrying about renewing my driver's license before the middle of September, so I finally decided to do something about it just to see if it would work.
Fortunately for me the state of Colorado wants as few people as possible coming in contact with state workers so they've set up their drivers license renewals on the Internet so there very user-friendly for people like me that need to get their drivers license renewed with the least fuss possible.
So taking advantage of the current situation, I got on the Internet, went to the Colorado DMV, and started filling out their renewal form. And when I got to the part about eye exams, it asked me if I'd had an eye exam within the last three years, and of course I had one yesterday, so I clicked yes, paid my $35 license renewal fee, and a few minutes later got an email thanking me for renewing my license on the Internet.
I'm hoping that actually worked, but I won't know for sure until my shiny new driver's license shows up at the door in a few weeks. But it should be okay, I did have an eye exam today, and even though it didn't turn out the way I'd hoped, it was still an exam, and that's all they asked for.
They didn't ask for a picture either, so I assume they'll use the old one, which suits me since I look five years younger. Of course, when you're middle-aged, five years doesn't make a difference, but when you're almost 75, every birthday makes you five years older in geezer years. So actually, my old driver's license picture makes me look 25 years younger, which would make me about 50.
50 would've been a good age for me. If I'd stayed in college, I probably would've graduated by 50 and have gone on to a lucrative career as a night manager at the 7-Eleven. But if I'd risen to the manager level, I probably would've stayed in Miami, Florida, and never have moved to Colorado.
But the chances are good that if I'd stayed in Miami, I'd be dead by now since the life expectancy of a 7-Eleven night manager in Miami was about 13 minutes...5 on a Saturday night.
So I guess I'm lucky to be almost 75 years old in Colorado, where my biggest worry is cataracts and boondocking spots, and not living in Miami, where my biggest worry was keeping my family and myself alive.
Old Colorado service station. This one looks like it was built in the late 40s early 50s to me.

As I was eating breakfast in my daughter's house this morning we looked out the windows and this small herd of deer was moseying by. I had to run out to the Arctic Fox to get my camera, and by the time I got outside with my camera the only picture I got was the north end of a southbound deer.
I didn't realize this neighborhood is as hilly as it is, no wonder I get tired walking around here.
