09.09.09 My Birthday!! Am I feeling Lucky?

09.09.09 Today is my birthday along with a zillion kids who's parents had MORE that a Happy New Year's Eve or Day celebration!!! In California, early 1970's when personalized auto license plates were up for purchase, I thought it would be fun to "apply for" VIRGO 9 for my first car (used Red 1969 2002 BMW). Check out the original blue plate and newer white style. And, yes I have to pay more in fees to have a personalized plate. Happy Birthday to all my Virgo friends.
