SEBRING, Fla. (AP) -- Lois Lewis is happily divorced and she wants the world to know.
The 74-year-old southwest Florida woman recently scrawled 'Just Divorced' across the back of her minivan - a riff on the newlywed tradition.
Highlands Today reports Lewis and her van have since become a roving novelty on Highlands County roadways, met with honks, thumbs-ups and requests for photos.
Lewis says the message is not an invitation to mingle. She's staying single and 'just wanted to let people know it's over'.
She divorced earlier this year after a year and a half of an unhappy marriage.
Lewis credits a Walgreens sales associate with giving her the idea.
