Colorado residents will be familiar with the take off on the State license plate, green and white, mountains in the back, with the word "Native". Then you get your "semi-native" "Ski Season Native" and so on.

Today I saw one: "Invasive Species"

LOL! Did it look like something on the Colorado A List? Must eradicate! Wonder if there's one around that says: Noxious Weed!

That's great, David! LOL

I've been up here more than 40 years. Mom was born in Idaho. However, I was born in California and after spending my growing-up time in Oregon - returned to the CA coast before moving here.

For many in this neck of the woods, I'm not just a Californian (I've had people tell me that I'm obviously a Californian), I'm a d**n Californian!

And yet, if the resident isn't one of the few natives, and not a Californian, he/she is from the upper Midwest. And, young people? They'll probably leave . . .

I wonder if they had 10 children....!? Yikes! 20 dogs?

I still like the "Transplant" one....

Funny, but when I was a native californian and much younger, I made a big stink about being native and all that. I think we only tend to go back 3 or so generations, then it doesn't matter where anyone came from. I now have an attitude that likes the idea of finding the right spot. We move for many reasons, some of which are weather, employment, education or to be with someone.

I do like the idea of the invasive species sticker; that really makes me giggle!!

Humans do seem to be invasive out here.
