Cleverest Vanity Plate Ever — & It Is A ‘New Hampshire’ Plate.

by Anura Guruge

It was on a SUV parked at our beach this morning.

I had to take a double take. I first thought it said ‘Venal’ & thought that that was quite ‘ballsy’. Then, I got it right.

WOW. Was I impressed. In ‘New Hampshire’? I am sure that a majority of folks in New Hampshire have NO IDEA what the word means. Many may even claim that they have never heard it (which, however, is unlikely to be true).

WAIT FOR IT.

It was on a white, U.S. GMC mid-size SUV.

Yes, it was INDEED an ‘Equinox‘.

Get it: Vernal Equinox, i.e., Spring (March) Equinox, ‘vernal‘ the Latin for ‘Spring related‘.

How clever. I was so impressed. I have NOT seen that plate before, BUT the Equinox was on our beach. I had a dog with me & it was past 10am. So, I didn’t dare venture to the beach. Dogs are not allowed after 10am (I think (or maybe it is even earlier)). It could have been somebody visiting a neighbor. I would LOVE to meet the owner. I think it is a Mum. There were only two vehicles parked & I could hear lots of kids on the beach.

My hat off to whoever came up with this. Bravo. Thank YOU. Made my day.


Here is the supreme IRONY. In September 2020, in EXACTLY the same spot as this Equinox was parked I saw this. Now that lacked class.

It would have been churlish not to share — & I am never that. Enjoy. Winter will be with us soon. SMILE.

Not as vividly red as it has been the last few days. That was the SMOKE from the fires out West.

Kind of a subdued sunset. Very peaceful. I enjoyed it. Hope you do too. Enjoy. SMILE.

The Flauntable Benefits Of Being A Mistress In New Hampshire.

I don’t know much about trucks — not having owned one since 1987. But, this looked pretty fancy, expensive & brand, spanking new. I only noticed the number plate much later.

WOW.

I had not realized that it was now OK to flaunt the fact.

I do NOT know whose it is, though it was at our beach. There was nobody there. Just I & the dogs. Maybe they were in the bushes, though I heard no noises & the dogs didn’t go sniffing.

I guess it is all relative. She obviously is very proud of it. Good for her.

That she could get that plate surprises & amuses I. Then again, as I chronicled here, I saw “BGFKNFM“, in Maine!

We also have “BJTOY” on a plate here — though you would run a mile if YOU saw who drives it.

Well, I guess each to their own. I wonder what HE thinks.

P.S., I do know of ALL the definitions of a ‘Mistress’ — but I doubt any school teachers still go around describing themselves as ‘mistresses’. SMILE.

Well you know who they are, viz. Braxton (left) & Maya, & where they are. I took them to get some pictures of the sunset. They are tied since it is late & I didn’t want them wet.

Classic British MGs & Triumphs For Sale At ‘Brit Bits’ In Rye, New Hampshire.

It was uncharacteristically warm on New Year’s Day and as such we ended up in Hampton (as in the beach) for some lunch. I invariably take the scenic route to Hampton — i.e., following the ocean — than the fast (and tolled) I-95. This means I have to go through Rye and ‘Brit Bits‘ is in Rye. And, of course, I had to stop.

It was, being New Year’s, closed. And this was the WINTER display. Very different to what they usually have in the Summer. That is UNDERSTANDABLE.

Other than the 1930s (methinks) MG in the showroom there was, for a change, nothing tempting. But, I was impressed by the prices.

My 1968 British Racing Green MGB, stickered and registered, appears to have appreciated quite a bit. Which was always the expectation.

I am still glad I stopped. Will have to go again in the Summer.


Given my collection I don’t turn too green at ‘Brit Bits’ any longer.

It has been quite the Summer up here in New Hampshire. We, as usual, went down to our beach (slightly late) around 6:15pm. We rarely go earlier. It is too hot and ‘non-peaceful’. I did my usual swim to the swim platform and back. [You can just about see it, way to the right, in line with the furthest boat — in the ‘black’ slick of calmer water.] By 6:45pm everybody was GONE. Just us. I read a bit. Took a quick snooze in the heat. Then I picked up my camera and looked through the lens. This is what I got — yes, albeit, after I kicked down the exposure compensation a few notches. This to I captures what Summer in New Hampshire Lakes Region is all about.

I took all of these pictures late in the day, Friday, June 22, 2018. Most were from our yard but a few were at the large shared beach we have deeded rights to on ‘Halfmoon Lake‘. I thought you might like to see them.

As I keep on warning you, it is hard to stop me from taking pictures of flowers in the Summer. But, the Summer, up here in New Hampshire, is short. Soon, I will be graduating to fall foliage. Promise.
