I love to let people know what I’m passionate about (yes, we’ve discussed my t-shirts & luggage tags). Today though, another way to spread the love is on my mind. It connects to something even more American than t-shirts! It is our cars & trucks!
I personally have an agriculture license plate on my car. In the city of Memphis you are a variety of plate designs – Elvis, wildlife conservation, St Jude Hospital or any of several local colleges. As I left my neighborhood, I saw another agriculture license plate! LOVED IT!
A lot of other people down here in the South put a Cotton Inc license plate on the front of their car or truck since our states tend to require a numbered plate only on the back of the car.
As I drove up I-55 today I saw my favorite bumper sticker, especially good for National Rice Month – “EAT RICE Potatoes Make Your Butt Big.” And as I type this, a pickup with a Genuity sticker pulls back onto the highway towing a grain cart!
What does your car or truck say about your passions?
I decided today I’d see how fast a blog post can be written, so I’m doing this one on my BlackBerry while at a gas station filling the tank. Thanks to Amanda Sollman for bringing up license plates last week! Gave me a quick post to do at the pump!

I found an old Iowa plate online because of this post. This was from back in the 50s when they issued a separate front plate: http://bit.ly/aG2pPC
Or the current Iowa plates that show a farm with a faint city skyline made up from the clouds in the background: http://bit.ly/bw3NW8
I should add in a link to a previous post… yes, Texas has some awesome license plates! Almost enough to get me to move there!
I was amazed while in Texas to see Texas Tech plates.
In CA we are in the process of finally being able to even order ag plates.
I do how ever sport several stickers…
NO Farms NO Food
Farmers Feed Cities
California Water…we all need it
I love Farmers they feed my soul….sticker is on my laptop!
I love farmers has new larger ones…. I need to get one!
I have Vermont Ag Plates. Had em for over 30 years.
They are all dented and worn.
Ag plates are few and far between.
You have inspired me to do a blog about ag plates.
May I link it to your story here ?
That would be awesome! Thanks Janis!

Picked up my Arkansas Cattlemen’s tags at the revenue office today! Showing my support with the tags on my pick-up. This post is what made me think of doing it. Thanks!
