Just another brick in the wall

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Residential

I was driving to an appointment the other day, paying very little attention, and I pulled up behind this lovely Audi. 

I quickly reached for my camera (and yes, we were at a full stop when I took the phote), and took this shot.

I don't know... it just tickled me.  I wouldn't have given it another thought, had it been on a Volkswagen, Ford or a Chevy... but somehow it seemed bit incongruous on an Audi.

And it seemed a touch odd to think that someone was paying the additional fee for the vanity plate.  Don't ask me why... it just did.

By the way, neither Audi, Mobil, nor Jell-O paid anything to have their logos featured prominently on my blog. Maybe I need to look into that... hmmmm?

Vanity plates always get me - kind of silly.  Some are certainly clever, however!  An agent in my office has a plate that says EasyMny  - sort of rubs me the wrong way!

I like the way your mind works Alan.  I got the Jello reference , thanks for clearing up the vanity plate from Craig.  I enjoyed the video from J.Phil , it reminded me of watching early MTV, when they actually played music videos.

Alan:  Again you come up with some weird thing in your blog...are you sure you aren't a misplaced Austin native (Keep Austin Weird)?  I love reading vanity plates when I can figure them out....keep us laughing and you have one great weird sense of humor.

Thanks for explaining Craig's plate.  I didn't get it either.  Glad I wasn't the only one.

Well, Alan, you could have made a small fortune in ad revenues on that one.  But nothing from PF.  They still owe the kids in that song money.  I love Craig's license plate.
