Christmas comes early to Blogville

Arizona is one of a dwindling few US states that doesn’t require a front license plate. You’re allowed to put something on the front just as long as it isn’t similar to a government license plate and cannot be mistaken for a government-issued license plate. I’ve been in the SM (ScottieMobile) for a while and we’ve never had anything on the front. The rear one said it all.

SAM_0215It’s MY car so I asked Him to get something for the front. Here it is!

SAM_0953We have one small problem. As usual, He didn’t plan ahead. This has always been an Arizona vehicle (the bad news-lots of dust-the good news-no rust). It has 160,000 miles (over 250,000km) on it and has never had a front license on it. He went to install it and found out that the hardware for it isn’t on the SM. I’ll have to wait. Please note the professional Scotch tape job He did for demonstration purposes only. I’m hiding my head in shame.

SAM_0954There is some good news. He had some extras made and I’m feeling generous. You, too, can have one of these. ย Yes, that’s moi on the plate! The price? It’s free plus zero shipping and handling. I’ll ship almost anywhere. I’ll ship to Oz but not to Mars. Unfortunately I think at this price they’ll be more demand than supply, so I’m going to have to choose. It’s not fair to say first to reply gets one because some residents of Blogville are always sleeping and that would favo(u)r some time zones. I’ll give everyone until October 21 (Arizona time) and that gives everyone a fair shot. By asking for one, you agree that you wouldn’t just throw it on a pile in the garage, never to be seen again-you’d actually display it. Preferences will be given to those with cars and (I really hate doing this but you can understand why) Scotties, although others will be considered. Under no circumstances will squirrels get one. I have ways of detecting squirrels who try to impersonate Scotties. Due to the price, shipping may be made through the Slow Boat to China company which is loosely organized and seems to be on perpetual vacation (and doesn’t work on weekends) so patience is needed. If you don’t get one, it doesn’t mean I don’t value you, it just means that there aren’t enough.

I need an email stating why you should get one and an address to ship to (no salesman will call and I won’t give it out).

Love to you all,

    Mollie and Alfie

  2. Hehehe sounds cool. But guinea pigs can’t drive so whee don’t have a car. Mummy also can’t drive, she once broke her arm driving those bumper car things at a carnival. She is so clumsy she’s not going to risk driving lessons!

    Whoever gets it is super lucky though ^_^

  3. Very awesome, I live in Florida where we don’t need a front plate either.

  4. wow! what fun! while we would love it, we unfortunately reside in one of those states that requires 2 license plates, so mum says we should let someone try for it that can use it. I, Edgar, disagree…we are a house divided. (mum wins by default because she controls the green bean supply…boo!)


  5. Are you for real, well I just sent you an e-mail. I hope I have not been punked!
    Sweet William The Scot

  6. Yup, I forgot to put the “scott” in there. If you got a bounced msg, please correct the address and resend. Sorry about that. I didn’t want to give it exactly and invite spam and it doesn’t read the same stretched out and funny.

  7. We’ll send off an e-mail.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  8. We live in Florida and we only have a back tag. Mom has had Scotties since 1968 and she would love to have your picture on her front license plate. We will try to sent an email. Even if we don’t get one, we will read your blog and look at your great photos every day.

  9. Poop Texas requires front and back plates and charge out the a double s for personalized plates. I really think it’s cool of you to offer up the plates and almost in contest style….you rock Kyla!

    Aroo to you,

  10. OMD…OMD…OMD!!! We want one of those licence plates baaaaaaaaad!!!!!!!! We’re gonna e-mail you right away!!

    Wally & Sammy

  11. Excellent, when do you get the keys?

  12. I’d write the most sad, pitiful email to get one, but I own no car and no scottie. It wouldn’t be fair for all the rest of scotties in here.
    Although the plate would look cute on my fridge next to the rainbow Obama lol


  14. At least you dad used SCOTCH tape for the demonstration, that’s not bad :o) We have no Scottie (wish I had one), but counts a bottle of scotch too?

  15. I live in California. You have to have two plates. Front and back. Got to let those cameras get you in the intersections.

    Have a woof woof day. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Did you see where the Australian company, Redflex, that supplies those things is no longer welcome in Chicago because of bribery of city officials. Seeing that it’s Chicago, I guess Redflex was too stingy with the money and they’re going to get another company with more cash.

  16. Kyla this is so totally cool…Ever since momz put MY license plate on the front of my geomobile I’ve been ridin’ high and proud…but guess what…she forgot about the whole hardware thing too so my plate has two different bolts holding it on…

  17. We will enter!!!… (when we manage to nab a squirrel in the park and disguise him as a scottie. :P) … Should have called it a Kyla Mobile ๐Ÿ˜€

  18. I’d say that’s a Kyla-mobile!!
