Do you have a vanity license plate on your vehicle? What does it say about you? Your name? Your ego? Your job? Tell me about your vanity license plate in the comments below.
For years, I had a vanity license plate on my vehicles which was simply my last name. A couple of years ago, I gave it up because it had become too expensive to renew.
When I got my new plate, I asked the clerk if I could keep the old plate, and she handed it to me. You can tell that I had used it for over ten years by how dirty it became. That black moldy substance around the letters is below a plasticized covering, and I can not clean it off.
For the past 3 ½ years, I have served on the board of our local homeowners association. I came in to replace a treasurer who was very sick and soon died. Then was elected to the board and served another year as treasurer. Then in my last two years, I was president of the board. It is a three person board and I had great people to work with. After the first year, we voted to hire a management company to assist us, and the biggest help of all was to the treasurer, who no longer had to send out statements and collect dues. My tenure ended in December, 2013, and at the end of the annual all homeowner meeting, they held a little party for me.

The cupcakes were arranged to look like a house with a chimney, red front door, and flowers out front, with autumn leaves and acorns on the roof!
I will continue to be the HOA Blog Editor, as I started the blog five years ago.
