State of the (License) Plate - Missoula, Montana

In correlation with its vast and varying vistas (!), Montana holds pride of place for the State with the most options for personalizing your vehicle license plate (for added fees, albeit some of which support worthy causes of your choosing). Admiration is always due clever wordplay within the tight character limits, as with today’s aptly crafted example.(I could have titled this “Wordplayt”!?!)  (Thanks Budget Blinds for the bonus commute guffaw! Photo snapped while fully stopped at the light, of course….Safety first, people!)

Long Sweeping Hwy 12 View - Near Garrison, Montana

 “An old cowboy once told me that memory rides a quiet horse, taking you to the tops of high hills with long sweeping views. Well, this quiet horse would be riding until the day I died, with a view so pretty it would always pain my heart.” - p 299, Sun Dance (Sam Keaton, Legends of Laramie) by Sigmund Brouwer
