Garage Wallpaper

License Plates.

Oh yes, we have a wall neatly plastered with Pennsylvania’s auto past.

Long ago memories of first cars.

Fast cars.

Beater cars.

And hauling trucks.

Colors of rusty gold with blue lettering.

Colors of faded yellow with the Keystone insignia.

Colors of worn out blue and illegible yellow lettering.

Decades of license plates spanning the ghosts of automobile past.

Dad’s favorite showpiece.

And talking points over coffee.

A bygone eras with his garage buddies.

And neighborhood friends.

Inherited pieces of metal as we remember, the stories of dad.
