At first glance it looks pretty much the same as the end-of-August map, right? Now take another look to the left of California. Hawaii! Toward the end of the month, I took a swing through the parking lot at Martha’s Vineyard Hospital — a good source of unusual license plates, especially in the summer — and there, tucked into one of the smaller lots, was an SUV with Hawaii plates.
Coloring it in on the map, I realized that Hawaii was #45 — a number that this year has come to have other, less-than-halcyon connotations. No matter: as far as the license plate game is concerned, 45 is Hawaii, nothing more, nothing less.
Wow! Getting real close, Susanna.
Wow… if this keeps up the Vineyard might sink into the sea!
I wish I were lucky enough to live on the island to count plate states! You do have me looking when I visit though.
the number 45 will never have the same basic common sense numerical meaning alone again. 😦
No kidding. 45 has taken on the trappings of 666, the mark of the beast.
Susanna, you’ve hooked me. I’m looking for the Nevada plate and looking around at everything as I travel the Island, seeing small things I’d never noticed before (great tree there). Thanks!
