A community of vans down by the river, where we take pleasure in beautiful canals, spinning yard decorations, roaming gnomes, a stationary bike trail, and our collection of well-worn tire swings!

*Traffic reports on the hour and half-hour by our all-seeing sages in the sky*

Every July 18th is decreed to be Gonzo Day in AVDBTR, honoring the birthday of Hunter Thompson.

On September 12th, we celebrate the life of our late vanry solicitor The Hanging Judge.

We value our partnership with Monte Carlo Beach, but we don't form alliances, host or join embassies, so don't bother asking.

In fact, mind your Ps and Qs, or Gardyloo! to you!

Happy B-Day MB. :-)

I'm glad you've resurrected yourself!

Eva Zeisel

Thank you, thank you! It's good to be back. :-)

It's that time of year again and we got started 10 days ago - I've been distracted. But in general, it's really been a busy summer - visitors, work on the ranch, chickens & veggies and the menagerie.
I hope everyone's well and had some fun this summer. Perc ... did you see Adele? How was it?

Today, I was thinking about things I don't like. And I don't mean something like tripe - I mean foods, products, even people that put me in the minority. Here's some things I don't like or just don't get:

Swiss cheese
Tom Hanks
Apple pie
Dave Matthews
French pedicures (are they supposed to look natural?)
Toeless boots (I don't get it - do you wanna wear boots or don't you?)
Cameron Diaz (is she supposed to be pretty, talented, funny ....what?)
Tuna packed in water (EVOO, please)

I could go on, but it's late.

And here's something on my really like list:

Adele's cover of The Cure's "Love Song" - heard it tonight, first time in quite a while. Wonderful.

Hello fine people of the Vanry. :)

No, Eva. I don't see Adele until Oct 11th. Mr. Pickleface and I are looking forward to seeing her.
Starting next week, I'm taking three weeks off. I'll be around more.

Mimes, how's the weather down in your neck of the woods?

Say, did you hear that Jet Blue took off this morning for the first "official" flight to Cuba? I think it would be cool to visit Cuba.

Eva, I'm thinking of a celebration of life of our dear Judgie on 9/12. What say you?

I'll be around, too. I want to stay clear of the dust, trucks, dogs barking because strange people are in the driveway, etc.

A celebration would be wonderful! But who would we invite? Do you think some of the former residents might pile into a caravan and show-up?

I'd love to go to Cuba - the beaches are supposedly pristine and perfect for snorkeling.

Mimeleh - hang onto your hat, honey! Time to rock 'n' roll!

Additions to my list:
Sarah Jessica Parker (with or without the mole)

So far it's been just slightly rainy. We'll see what happens in the wee hours of the morning!


Invite whomever you want. Free to be you and me. :)

Right on, Marlo! :)
