When Suzanne came over the other evening, she had with her some old photos and one of the things she came across was Dad’s old drivers license. It was probably when they first decided to issue drivers license. His picture was stapled to this tattered piece of paper and it was issued on 14 May of 1937. On the back you filled in the blanks and written in calligraphy: color: W, sex: M, age: 24, weight: 152, height: 5-10, color hair: dark, color eyes: gray.
Color hair—dark? What kind of color is that? I guess you had light or dark hair or no hair at all. We were surprised always knowing Dad to be pretty bald, but the picture clearly shows (dark) hair.
Here it is, isn’t it funny? The photo is probably the way you remember him.
Did you have a drivers license? I remember a story that you drove a little until you got stuck on a small hill with a stick shift and then you decided not to drive any more. Guess I can’t blame you as I could never manage a stick shift, but if it was all I had to drive, then I’m thinking I would have figured it out. Guess it wasn’t as important back then.
