Just Divorced Sign On Car Helps Woman Heal After Difficult TIme

Posted: Updated:

Lois Lewis has become the talk of the town in Sebring, FL all because of two words: "Just Divorced".

"I'm getting thumbs-up, people rolling windows down, saying ‘go for it girl,' " she said.

She finalized her divorce earlier this month, after an unhappy year and a half of marriage. It was her second marriage; her previous husband passed away in 2007. She says the idea for "Just Divorced," came from some friends at a nearby Walgreens.

"They said why don't you put ‘just divorced' on your car, like people just married. I said I never thought of it," she said.

Now what started as a cute joke has taken on a life of its own.

"We were in Lake Wales yesterday at Manny's restaurant and I can't tell you how many people pulled out cameras," she recalled.

It's even helped her heal after a difficult time.

"All my friends say, ‘you're the old Lois we knew.' I like to have fun, I like to dance, I like to party, and I don't even drink, and have fun," Lois said.

She's having a blast every time she rides down the road.

"I had some young guy's in a pickup truck yell ‘go for it lady, you got smarts,' " she joked.

But she points out the artwork isn't meant to attract singles, it's just her way of having a good a time.

"I'm having fun with it, I'm not sure when I'm going to take it off," she says.

She says when it comes to being happy, if it means writing "just divorced" on your window, then two more words come to mind: WHY NOT?

"I just enjoy life," Lois said.
