and then there were three!

… licensed teenage drivers in my household, that is.  Gamma passed her road test with a perfect score yesterday at the Roane Co. TDOT TDOS office.  I dread getting the next insurance statement, though it could be worse:  they’re all girls, and they all have clean driving records.

We had to go to Roane County, because the backlog for appointments in Clinton was more than two weeks.  ‘Twas a good thing, though; the state trooper who served as her license examiner was the nicest fellow — calm, easygoing, just what a beginning driver needs.

Now, she’s on her first venture out without a parent in the car; she took her little sister to the pool.  How wonderful to have a child who is willing to take a younger sibling along!

It’s a new degree of freedom for me.  No longer will the "mom’s taxi" be running up the miles.   Delta will get her license just a couple of months after Gamma leaves for college, and I have two years before that happens.

    Uh, the agency that issues D.L.’s is the TDOS, Tennessee Department of Safety. TDOT is Transportation. They keep the roads up where the drivers use their license. Sorry.

    Duly corrected, thanks. Since what you see is the third time I’d written this post (the other two mysteriously disappeared), I wasn’t thinking clearly.

    I can see that happening. Terrible to be cross eyed.
