If you got pulled over in that month, just say they're on the counter at home. Play the ditzy lady card.
You'd probably get a warning and not a ticket
Believe me I've considered it. I am out and about daily and it wouldn't take many tickets (???$75 - $100) to add up to that. Edina has an abundance of police - I wouldn't get far.

Umbria, don't they refund if you turn in the plates early?

I gagged at reupping DH's registration due at month end; 92 buckaroos for two years. I do believe they prorate it by months and refund you what you don't use. Yes, believe it or not, even in merciless cash strapped New York state.

Crikey, look at dat hail!!!!!!!!

Those are some large chunks of hail. Hard to imagine in the desert.

LOL, Umbria, the vehicle registration criminal.


I know DH won't let me, but I want to take a Sharpie to my plates when we leave and write under the words New York at the top of the license plate-in the same font s it looks original and not graffiti-Sucks We're Leaving.

The "Empire State"???? A little arrogant or is it just proud?

So, will you bail me out of the slammer?

"But Officer, I just got ticketed for this. I'm waiting for them to get here in the mail."

the Empire state is named for the Empire State building in NYC. We are also unknown (sarc) for our Empire apples......c'mon, this is Noo Yawk, we're full of ourselves! (I am not a native so I'm just full of BS)

Umb, as long as you have an email address and a paypal account I'm sure we can drum up enough bail.......

I may have gotten away with that 20 years ago but not now. I could say I was just out in the CA desert and got clunked on the head by a shower of large hail and am having memory problems. Except then they'd just call me senile and take my license away.

Crime doesn't pay

You are our Ebay queen - I have never used it. Do you track how much you sell on Ebay? It seems like a lot of work.
