Eight stars of gold on a field of blue -
Alaska's flag. May it mean to you
The blue of the sea, the evening sky,
The mountain lakes, and the flow'rs nearby;
The gold of the early sourdough's dreams,
The precious gold of the hills and streams;
The brilliant stars in the northern sky,
The "Bear" - the "Dipper" - and, shining high,
The great North Star with its steady light,
Over land and sea a beacon bright.
Alaska's flag - to Alaskans dear,
The simple flag of a last frontier.

"UGA" is the University of Georgia Bulldog Mascot. All "UGAs" are bred in Savannah and must be all white, not the breed standard. This plate commemorated UGA VII, and fit just right, but UGA VII died about two weeks later. Then UGA VIII died. There is an "interim" UGA right now he is not all white but when UGA IX comes along it will fit! GO DAWGS SIC 'EM woof woof woof woof woof.

Mine is the Blue Tahoe "WE EVN" and it was given to me by it previous owner after he wrecked my Blazer out at Jim Creek. I park away from ppl because I'm tired of dents from other ppls doors. The other vehicle was parked by me when we came out of Applebees on Debar n Muldoon.

This picture doesn't do the truck justice, but it's seen some serious mud in it's days. Our first day of dating and my now husband and I rolled and totaled this truck. He bought it back and made it into this. It is currently under construction to become even bigger!
