HEY DUDE…You Did IT!

Late 2009 through 2013 have got to be some of the darkest days of my life.

I hope that was my mid-life crisis because I do not wish to experience and feel like I did during those years ever again.

I broke.  I mean I broke like I never dreamed possible for me.

Since then I have been building my life up again, day by day, year by year.

I have worked really hard all in areas of my life.

The ole broken foot last year set me back in the health and fitness department, and I am unclear about how I can get that side going again as I head into tax season with a newbie and for some reason challenged helper.

That really concerns me.

BUT.

This morning.  In this moment in time.  ALL IS RIGHT IN MY WORLD.

I did it.  I finally did it.  I got my Hey Dude license plates back!!

I have been trying to get those personalized license plates back since 2010!

My signature thing is – Dude.

Hang around me long enough and you too will be using the term frequently.

When I had the plates before, they made people happy and were conversation starters.

Complete strangers would walk by me and say – Hey Dude.  And I would be like – Hey Dude.

I remember a couple of times driving on the interstate and cars would pull up beside me giving me the thumbs up or rolling down their windows yelling – Hey Dude!!

Smiles and happy.

That is how I felt.

I had those plates at a high time in my life before, and now I have them back!

I worked very hard for those plates.

I deserve them.

And I will be enjoying them for the rest of my life.

Yep.  I am going to be in my 80’s or maybe even 90’s driving around with Hey Dude license plates on my vehicle.

Granted I will be driving 5 miles per hour and people will be yelling – Hey Dude Get Out of The Way!!!

But I will be hard of hearing and remembering the good old days as I flash them my thumbs up and big smile.
