March License Plate Report

With all this A to Z Challenge excitement, the March License Plate Report is late late late, but here it is at last.

A short list but a good ‘un. Georgia isn’t a big deal, but the East Coast is now complete except for the usual holdout, Delaware. West Virginia I spotted while cruising through the hospital parking lot — always worth a detour, even in the off-season — and Kansas?

Toward the end of the month I took Malvina Forester to Up-Island Automotive for her annual inspection. Inspections are done in a single bay behind the shop. There are loads of cars, vans, and pickups back there, nearly all of them sporting Massachusetts plates, some with registration stickers that expired a few years ago. But right in front, impossible to miss as I waited for Malvina to pass her tests, was KANSAS.

It was like spotting Nevada off Lagoon Pond Road in Vineyard Haven the day of the Women’s March in January. Martha’s Vineyard Hospital may be good hunting ground, but you never know what will turn up in out-of-the-way places.
