Today Willow posted an interesting piece about the mustache. It reminded me of those years when just about every male had one. You know, the '70's and '80's. http://willowmanor.blogspot.com/
During my last trip to Texas, I happened upon my old, long expired Texas Driver's License. I had completely forgotten about it, and no wonder: I had that damn '70's porn star mustache, and MY EYES WERE CLOSED!! YES! And the Texas Department of Public Safety let me keep that license. It tickles me, but it also just blows my tiny little mind!
Now I haven't lived in Texas for many many years. I was overseas in Asia, Northern Africa, and the Middle East for a long time. I don't really talk like a Texan. But damn if something doesn't always pop up to perpetuate those stereotypes about Texans and Texas.
Well, I snapped a quickie cell phone photo of that license, so pardon the blurry image. But I find it amusing and decided to share. So here it is.... Can't you just hear ZZ Top blaring on the car radio?
drive me crazy!
close my eyes, ossifer,
so you'll know
