From York, Pennsylvania to York, United Kingdom

I have a real fun story to share today from longtime reader and friend Jo Ott, who had a real “Only in York County” moment recently!

She writes:

“I spent the weekend in northern Virginia and on the way home today, I stopped at the Gettysburg Museum & Visitors’ Center to see the Annie Leibovitz photo exhibit there. (If you can get there—go, go, go! There will probably not be another one this close to York and this cheap – $8. I paid $16 to see a similar although larger one in Washington a few years ago.)”

She continues, “I spent additional time at the museum viewing Civil War exhibits which are so wonderful, got a terrible lunch and walked back to my car. I pulled away and noticed a note under a wiper and stopped to get it, hoping it was not someone telling me they dinged my car which was just repaired after running over a huge piece of truck tire tread on 83.”

Instead, this is what she found:

The decal referenced was given to Jo by a niece who was visiting England, and looks like this:

Jo says, “What are the possibilities of this man parking his car next to mine at the Gettysburg parking lot or anywhere on the planet? I left him a brief note as to where the decal came from and why it was displayed on my car.”

From York, Pennsylvania to York, United Kingdom! What a cool story!

About Joan

My name is Joan and I'm a lifelong Yorker. Throughout high school and college, I swore I was getting out of here as soon as possible. Now, a few years later, I can't think of anywhere I'd rather be. I love my town, and I hear every day from readers who love their towns, too. So please, connect with me and let's share what makes life in York County great. I'm here to help you enjoy this place as much as I do!
