I Want A Horned Toad
No silly not a real one. I want a licence plate for my truck with a horney toad on it. That's what we call them here in south Texas. Here in Texas we can get specialized licence plates with all kinds of things on them. I've been admiring this certain one for quite sometime. My little ford ranger is beige or tan and this little guy would look so nice on it. Well I got brave when I went to pay my county taxes today. In fact I got so brave I forgot my taxes reciept. I ask the young lady behind the counter what it intailed to get this horney toad licence plate. I did remind myself to pronounce it HORNED TOAD not horney toad. She was so glad to tell me all about it. It just cost $30.00 more a year added to the usual fee. Hummm I'm thinking don't they know I'm a widow on a fixed income? Don't they know I don't have a sugar daddy? Don't they know I want a horney toad on my little truck? You say ask John? Are you kidding? Spending money on such as this is pure stupidity to him. Several years back he did bring me a baby horney toad. Oh no I said, we have to take it back to where you found it. It's too little, it needs it's mama. We took it back. We haven't seen a horned toad in this county for years now. Do you have them in other states and if you do are there still some around?
