World Factbook Entry

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!

Due to Mimes' brilliant idea - the hubcap/pie tin Cyber Monday sale - we were able to deliver a nice, fat check to the Food Bank today. 100% of the proceeds.

Could someone do my tree for me? Thank you.

I second what Kibbie said.

Eva, I went to the local market and bought up all of the Marie Calendar pies. I donated the pies to the local women's shelter (switched out the tins for Mrs. Smiths tins), so I have 777 tins for donation. Well, I only donated half of the 777 because Babs ate the other half. MB needs to feed him more often.

PS... Eva, you might want to bring in your Christmas Cactus. I saw that pesky rascal Babs gnawing on the delicate blooms.

This is excellent news! We shall be tinning it! That's it! Tinning it! The latest in banal verbs!

Wait a minute ...wait a minute. This doesn't mean I have to sign another 388.5 tins, does it? I mean, it could be too much of a good thing, you know? A little 'too much Eva'. I don't want to over-saturate my market.

As for Kibbie's tree - do what I always do. Throw a party. If you throw enough food and booze at people, you can get them to do just about anything. Granted, there are people who require more. They're needier. But some fresh bud and a few fatties solves that problem. Hell ...with food, booze and drugs, you might never get rid of them. Or you could call SpinBushy. That woman will do anything for a pizza and a 6-pack. She'll spend the weekend and decorate the whole house.

Is Babs monkey or goat? That animal will put anything in his mouth - metal, plastic, cardboard. I chased him off on Tuesday - he was gnawing at the rail of my deck. Maybe he's a different animal altogether - a "Goatoon" ?? He freaks me out, just a little bit.

No worries, Eva. I ended up taking the extras down to the recycling center and got a nickle for each tin. I received nearly 20 bucks. I turned that money around and donated it to MB. I ran into her at the local farmers market. She left her pocketbook in her van and didn't have any money on her person for mushrooms, chives, potatoes, leeks, and french bread. Felt sorry for the OAP. I heard Babs wants potato & leeks soup for Tea.

Babs is a monkey (you know that ;)) and a cheeky one at that.

Kind of you to help the old cow. ;-)

I'm keeping track of my "Cyber Xmas Countdown" emails and "Clinique" is winning by a big margin. Without fail, I'm hearing from that company 4 X day, everyday, starting at 1:10 a.m. The runner-up is Crate & Barrel with as many as 3 X day but usually only twice.

Yesterday, we received a lovely gift hamper, stocked with goodies, from friends in Surrey. And today, I tore into a bag of "Henderson's Relish- Flavour Yorkshire Crisps". I'm guessing they're an acquired taste, right Mr. Pickle?

I received a citation. For a burned out van taillight. Ho ho ho.

Mr. Pickle loves anything Yorkshire. ;)

Mimes, you better get that fixed PDQ. :p
