It’s always a good THYME to catch a license plate photo

I always keep my camera close at hand, because you never know when a good vanity license plate will present itself. Sure enough I spotted one yesterday at a local farm stand so I stopped to take a photo and ask the story behind the plate THYMELY. Here’s what I learned (paraphrased):

Due to circumstances of my business, I was always the one getting the new car, and my wife always received the hand-me-down. Eventually the day came when she said it was time that she had her own brand new car. So we bought this car for her — it was timely. AND, for added meaning, she chose the license plate THYMELY because her name is Rosemary.

A great story! I love it when license plates have double meanings.

Send us a photo of your vanity license plate (all states) along with the meaning of the story and maybe you’ll be featured in this blog! Email them to
