The stars had to fall somewhere. A big red X on the back of a pickem-up truck is as good of a place as any.

It refers to the night of November 12, 1833, when a fantastic meteor shower seen across the Southeast caused this night to be known as “the night stars fell on Alabama.” The shower created such great excitement across the state that it became a part of Alabama folklore and for years was used to date events. A century later it inspired a song and book

The baby is needing to be fed, and I don't have time to read everything,so I dont know if Michigan has been nominated yet, but I really like the plain blue with just Michigan written on it in white. It says to me "yeah we're from Michigan, what about it?'' And it looks like the official government tags.

Indiana has been known to have pretty funky plates.
Do they have an identity crisis there?

I like the new South Carolina plate that's going into circulation next July.

We have a friend visiting from Arkansas. They have a gorgeous new license plate with a hummingbird. It's part of a wilderness series that feature an elk, a trout, and a few other animals.

I like the Virginia plates that feature the ships at Jamestown, too.
