A fun post to read, Barbara. My grandson just got his driver's license. I think I will borrow one of your funny sayings to send in a congrats card to him. I remember being so 'nervous' when his dad passed his driver's test and 'drove' me back home. Now it's HIS turn to worry.... LOL.

It took my aunt 4 tries to get her drivers licence. She was in her 40's and my uncle bought her the longest vintage car I had ever seen. I could not have imagined taking the test in that car lol. It was a beauty though.

Some of those are really funny. I wish I have these when the grandkids got their license.
