It's great to be living back down in the Deep South where the the states of the former Confederacy don't require front license plates on your car. It is a proud tradition in these parts to choose an appropriately decorative plate that best expresses your personality, hobby, allegiance or religious faith.
The last time I had this unique opportunity was when I was an undergraduate at the University of Georgia and placed a beautiful facsimile of the Georgia state flag on the front license plate holder of my 1965 Dodge Dart.
My new plate arrived today from the very friendly dealer in Alabama whose eBay store specializes in such things. Oh the simple joys of life in the South! Welcome home Beamis!
