Add to that the complication that the van is at the mechanic's and we can't check the plate number, and Don asked, "Who writes down their plate numbers?" Small self-satisfied smile in 3...2...1...
Awhile back I realized I had none of our vehicles' important info in one place so I made a little spreadsheet. I haven't kept up with repairs or purchases but the basic facts are there and uploaded to Google Drive so I can get them when I need them. Yep, the band van's license was correct.
AND I keep a pretty accurate Google Calendar so I was able to go there and find out that, why yes, he had a gig in Lockhart, TX on January 31, which required we drive the outskirts of Austin. In our usual pattern we got a little lost and must have driven a toll road unawares.
Guilty as charged; the check's in the mail. Perhaps I was a Boy Scout in a former life.
