So the plates came this week for our Ford Escape, and as “NML” lovers we were pleasantly surprised by the serendipitous combination of its three letters, obviously requiring it be paired with an appropriately-themed frame, which we picked up at Pep Boys on the way back from Costco and I installed this afternoon, like so:

While technically we have a menagerie of nine animals, it is the six furry ones with which we most often interact. The only thing that would have made the absolute randomness of this not-personalized personalized plate more mind-blowing is if we had received the one made 49 prior this one. The 840 would’ve matched our house number.
