New Motoring License Requirement Grievous Imposition to Ypsilanti's Elite

Just between you and me, Mrs. VanSchmildebank's soiree wasn't quite...correct...was it? Poor dear, and she tries so hard. And all that jewelry! I heard Miss Swanabout say that no one in New York wears anything like that.

She's nouveau riche, dear--she just doesn't know any better. Nothing like your reception last month. Simply divine. And your new Rolls is magnificent!

Oh, that reminds me, dear, I had to get one of those new Michigan Driver's Licenses.

A license?

Yes, it's a new requirement for 1919. And you wouldn't believe it, the grubby little clerk in the office there actually had the nerve to ask my age! And--my weight! Can you imagine? Just some...common bookkeeper! I simply MUST tell the editor of the paper about this! Pass me a cucumber sandwich, dear.

The horror, the horror.

I just had an idea. Wouldn't it be cool if the legislators TODAY belonged to the working class? I'd dig it.

James, dear, please! Have some compassion!

Apparently EW's have existed in every age...

I know that I always feel a little timid and backward when I have to go to the Secretary of State's office.

Dusty D said...

Sandy D: Hi! Welcome to the blog! Oh, me too; it's dreadful. The last time I was there I had the wrong paper and my stress level rose faster than a hot-air balloon. But at least I didn't mind that they knew my weight and real age.

Makes you wonder if we as a society have less personal privacy in general now than in 1919.

Teacher Patti: I definitely agree. Story on NPR just said the average legislator's salary is $80,000.

I also happened to notice the other day that the signs around the Ann Arbor Farmer's Market state that it was founded in 1919. So maybe, that is one of the places that Carrie drove to with her new motor license.

Lisele: Ooh, interesting! Yes, "let's go see the new market!" seems like a perfect weekend trip for Carrie and friends. Great observation!

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.
Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
