I had to renew the registration on my car--something I completely forgot about until the little reminder card from the state slipped out from our Vast Pile of Mail and fell to the floor.
Normally renewing an auto registration involves simply paying your money at the courthouse and getting a proof-of-renewal sticker to attach to your existing license plate. My state has used aluminum plates for some time, and they last for years--unlike the old steel ones that would rust.
I discovered I was being issued a new plate, too:
Is this plate goofy or what? Besides poverty and Bourbon whiskey, our state is known for horses. Our plates have always had horses. Now we have a goofy smiley sun?
