I recently noticed all the "stick figures" that have appeared in everyone's rear windows. They're in new SUVs, Dodge Caravans, Ford cars and trucks. These little white shapes, big, small and in-between seem to be everywhere you look. There are shapes for dad, there are figures for mom, brother, sister, the family dog or cat, or both. Yesterday, I saw a new shiny black SUV with a shape representing even the family pet pig. That got a chuckle even from a mean old man like me. I also noted that most stick figurines have the names of each family member. How nice.
This has gone so far even this newspaper had a long front-page article, all concerning the same subject: stick figures in your glass window performed by a small store located on the west side of town.
When my daughter saw the article, she thought it was desirable and a good idea to let everyone know what family members were in their new SUV, and went down and had the stick figures of her husband, herself, my two grandchildren, their cat and dog, along with their names, installed.
