Vanity Plates

.
This may not happen anywhere in the world outside of the US. They used to have it in the UK but I think the nanny state swept it away. Personalized license plates, sometimes called vanity plates, are available in many American states for a fee, so car owners get to promote themselves or their views. Some of the St. Louis metropolitan area is in Illinois. My son, city photoblogger U "R" Us, lives in Illinois but this isn't his car dedicated to me. He drives a Honda, not a Toyota. I have a vanity plate, too, pictured below. The message is very obscure. You probably have to know me or do exactly the same work to understand. A print of the STL CDPB photo of your choice will be awarded to anyone who can decode it. Employees of STL CDPB, our sponsors, travel agents, legal counsel, photo equipment vendors and family are excluded.

WHAT I'D LIKE TO DO (Thursday night): sleep. 220 miles / 354 km of driving round trip for a single hearing, three hours prep time and conference call about a re-make of our firm's web site and assembling today's blog post are enough. Thanks heavens I have Robert Mondavi to blow me a kiss goodnight.

TOMORROW:
ex libris.

Your vanity plates reminded me that for many years my license plate name was SCRIBE because I had a calligraphy supply business selling supplies to scribes all over the world. The price for vanity plates in Ohio kept going up and up and finally they allowed more letters, but I opted out.

This is going to drive me crazy. I think I have one part but not the other. The Greek version of Robert Mondavi blew me a kiss last night.LOL

So would I be excluded as legal counsel, or do I have to be YOUR legal counsel? I had a personlized plate in High school in Illinois, as they are use to be much cheaper over the river. Not sure about now.

PJ, you are close but not quite there. Jen, you're not my counsel so you are eligible. By the way, I think vanity plates in Missouri are only $24 a year over the regular charge,

Sorry, not quite awake, that's beneficiary.

I think the SSI is right but the DIB could be a lot of things. I'll throw in Disabilities Issues Board just to be safe.

Then there's Supplemental Security Income. And now I have to start my day. Bye.
