Oh My Goodness!!! Scary Larry retired. I thought he was named Scary Larry because he almost always failed the boys the first time and passed the girls. I know so many families that happened too, including my own. My kids were not afraid of him. My daughters actually liked him. He seemed to be a nice man. I wish him well in his retirement.

I had "Scary Larry" for my driver's test when I moved here from Canada. I passed. Was hoping my student would get him this summer when he took his test. Congratulations on your retirement. I hope you do start up a driving school, you have a lot to share with our young people.
