Liddell From page 3 taken! I looked like a deer not only blinded by the car lights, but then run over! Who cared? I PASSED! I immediately called Eric to give him the “good” and “bad” news. Yes, I had passed the written test, but had ALMOST flunked “picture.” A few weeks later my license arrived and it looked as it I was now finished with the DMV and the humiliation that went with it. No such luck! I received a letter from these won- derful state officials telling me that because of some numbers on the back of my license, I would have to make an appointment to go back to the Fullerton office! I quickly turned my card over and saw “13” which stated “Area Restriction.” I could only use my “Class A” license on Catalina Island. The other number stumped me. “50.” It stated “Customized Restrictions On File—Contact DMV.” What the heck did that mean? I made an appointment and showed up to have this matter cleared up. I showed this letter to the examiner and asked her for clarification. She had a puzzled look and took my license. She told satisfaction. satisfaction. is higher (July August Friday 2am) -0n call tow driver $25.00 per hour for each call Avenue) by February 29th 2016 employees are like our family!

All of our me to wait while she looked it up in “the book.” She went to a back room. Now, I am probably a bit paranoid by this time, but I swear I saw every surveillance camera in the DMV point directly at me and I heard laughter coming from the back room! I am sure I saw people peeking at me :hrough a crack in the door! A few moments later she came back to the desk and informed me, “I am sorry, but there is no such code number ‘50! ’ There must be some mistake!” I must thank Ron Louder, Eric Cederwall, and Janie Eisenhut for training me to drive the big rigs, although I only did it for two years. I now only do the History and Ghost Walking "ours so hopefully the citizens and 'isitors to Catalina can now sleep soundly! I am pretty sure of one thing! At every “DMV Christmas Party’ across the US, and possibly Calada and Mexico, the video of me zttempting to have my picture taken in San Pedro is played as an “Aren’t you glad you didn’t have him in your DMV office!” To contact Chuck Liddell, email him at cruckliddell.cata- lina@gmail.com.
