Okay, Ladies!
(edited @ 2pm to add-
And GENTS- because
left me a comment that he
IS NOT a lady...
I started out with 
left from the original 20.
I am trying to match
them up by sending
them to people 
that have someone 

The only requirement is that
you are a follower of my blog.

So...Here is what I have left.
If you have a son born in 1973
this plate is yours.
First person responding gets it.
If you have a daughter born
in 1975 you can claim this.
And, as I said before,
if Hummels ARE NOT your thing,
don't sign up.
I want them to go to people
that will love them.

Prior plates are going to:

Congrats, girls.
I am going to try my 
best to get these mailed out
the first of the week,
Lord willing and the creek don't rise!
your photo name

In your post, you referred to me as a "lady" and a "girl". Are you trying to stick it to me?
I can't join in but I wanted to say that this is a great idea! I only wish I had thought of it.
