Early in January, a large envelope arrived in the mail. My son said, “Uh, oh. Something big. That’s not good.”
The smile on my face was huge. “This isn’t something bad,” I said. “Your mama’s big pimpin’.”
I opened the envelope and pulled out my very own license plate that sported the word BREEZY. I couldn’t stop smiling.
Ohio no longer requires a front license plate, and I hated the plate the dealership had put on my car with their name on it, so voila – I ordered my own plate.
Now, granted, nobody will know it stands for Breezy Books (www.breezybooks.com), but I know, and it makes me happy, so that’s all that matters.
I’m driving a 2008 Honda Civic. I bought it in June of 2021. I knew when I went to look at the car it was thirteen years old, but it only had 39,000 miles on it! I nearly fell over when I saw the condition. This car was like new. I’m not kidding. The interior showed no signs of wear whatsoever. The engine was shiny and clean. The undercarriage was shiny and clean. It drove great. It was too good to be true – but it wasn’t.
I love this car. I envision a little old lady named Ethel previously owned it and only drove it to church on Sundays with a stop at the store for a few groceries on her way home.
I don’t drive the car very much either. I guess I am the next Ethel to whoever gets the car after me … but don’t call me Ethel.
What about you? Do you have a vanity plate? Are you as good at spotting great buys on cars as I am? Is there anything flashy and showoffy about your car like my BREEZY license plate? Spill!
It’s that freak flag flyin’! 🙂
No vanity plate, but I have a license plate holder that I like . . .
Good luck and good times on your travels.
I like your plate holder! I need to replace mine and get rid of more advertising for the dealership. I don’t know about good times. I ran away from my family and checked into a Mariott for a couple of days to write. U.S. Marshals pulled an early morning raid on the connecting room next door. How nice of them to provide some entertainment for me.
At least they hit the right room.
But, if you’re there writing, you shouldn’t be answering comments.
Good luck with the writing, and for no more raids.
Loving the plate! As long as you understand what it means and are happy with it, that’s all that matters! You always be you, lady. 🙂
I have no idea why that silly plate makes me so happy. I guess it’s because it’s so uniquely me – breezy! And that’s how I’m determined to be in my new life … happy and breezy. Love you, Jackie!!
We are still breezing along in our 2007 Honda CRV and have less than 50,000.
Still runs fine. (I probably jinxed it by writing about it.) 😦
Aren’t these cars great! We also have a 2005 Honda Civic with 130,000 miles on it. Runs great! No jinxing involved; they are just great cars. Less than 50,000 on yours – at that rate, it will last for years and years to come. 🙂
It will certainly outlast us!!
I have a “Hook Drive” vanity plate in my basement.
Of course you do. 🙂 I like it!
That’s so cool!!!
That stupid license plate makes me smile every time I come out of a store and walk to my car. I love that I AM BREEZY! 🙂
