You want how much money?

Another shocker for us!  Joseph went to the DMV to get his license and register his "Beemer".
It wasn't surprising that he had to wait, fill our papers and get shuffled around while there.
But what was surprising was that since he had just bought his car in May, which makes it only 5 months ago, California requires you pay an additional sales tax on new purchases 6 months or less.  It's to keep people from going out of state to buy their cars with cheaper taxes. They charge the tax according to California ($4000) then subtract the tax that we paid in NC ($1100)
So Joseph had to pay $2900.  Really?!
Holy cow!!!
Good thing;  My roses continue to bring a smile.
