    The city of Portsmouth, NH does one better - any metered spots are free if you have veteran plates.

    My drivers license has "Veteran" imprinted on it. My plates are Veterans plates.

    Mine too, on both counts. But my wife’s doesn’t. And whether I’m driving my car or my wife’s, it’s still a vet doing the parking.

    I’d imagine a HUGE number of vets don’t have it on their DL, either

    My BIL parks UNDER the covering at the contractors desk. Diagonally. In the dead center. He can be a D-word sometimes.

    I think it is a nice gesture. But while I am still fit and able bodied, I will leave those spaces for Vets that can really appreciate being a little closer.
    I try to shop at the Mom and Pop establishments whenever I can, but that is not always an option.
    Cape Cod Lumber, National Lumber, Mozzones, Mid Cape, Bridgewater Farm Supply with their, "If we don't carry it, you don't need it" signs, are still my favorites. I will pay a little more to shop there.
    I bought my tractor from a John Deere dealer and get all of my maintenance stuff there. Stove from Yale Electric, Echo weed wacker with edger, hedge trimmer, chain saw attachment from Dewhurst Lumber, and I stick with Benjamin Moore paint.
    But when you are sweating a pipe that your wife whacked with a ladder at 7:00pm on a Sunday, and your torch runs out of gas, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. But I still feel dirty walking out.
