All Nines!

Guys, check out the odometer on my car!

I reached 9,999 miles the same time that I reached 99.9 miles for that gas trip. You can't plan stuff like that! Except that maybe I totally did. And maybe I drove around with a camera in my car for a couple days to make sure I got a picture. And maybe I drove slowly around a parking lot right before it happened cuz I didn't want to try and take a picture while I was driving on a busy road. So what? It's all nines. Isn't that awesome?

You are a nut. The very best kind of nut. :) (the nines ARE cool, contrived or not.)

And WV wishes you a peaceful day. The word is: gandi (WV isn't the best speller)

We have a similar picture from our odometer, except we have just a few more miles. Our pictures shows 111,1111.

I'm pretty sure nines are lucky. You are in for something special soon, I'm sure of it!

LOL! I can just picture you driving slowly through a parking lot plotting the awsomeness of all 9999999's.

You make me happy!

Kazzy said...

I love it! I love how I can totally see you doing this, and how it wouldn't surprise me at all. Of course, I am jealous that I never think of these things first. You are awesome!!!

Too bad it wasn't all sevens, and you weren't in Vegas, and won the jackpot.
