June License Plate Report

Last year’s June was so spectacular — nine new sightings — that this year’s is a bit disappointing: only three. One of them was Utah, however, which I never did get last year, so that’s something. Tennessee and Delaware were the others.

Michigan, Wisconsin, Washington, and New Mexico have to be out there, and Louisiana and Idaho too. Clearly I’ve got to take more detours through the Martha’s Vineyard Hospital parking lot.

On the upside, at the very end of May I had cataract surgery on my left eye, my stronger eye, which had been getting more and more nearsighted and less and less able to tell some license plates apart on the fly, which is often how I spot them. Now I’m 20/20 in that eye without any correction, something that hasn’t been true since I was in grade school, if ever. (I started wearing glasses in fourth grade.) So we’ll see what I can see in July.

  1. With so many out on travels….are the ones who stayed home happier? Poorer? Or just unsociable? We should do a study….for fun!

    Amazing how the correction to your eyes is so good and so easy.
    All roads lead to the hospital.


    • If you have to have surgery, cataract surgery is the best! It’s localized, results are immediate, discomfort is nil, and the only hassle is having to put drops in your eye several times a day for four weeks.

      All roads lead to the hospital — and thence to the morgue? 😉 Somehow I don’t think the license plate spotting would be as good at the funeral home . . .
