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!

To say I'm happy for the next round is an understatement!


Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you, Sweetie! Hope it was all good. :-)

We need a delegate - I think - so I just swung you my vote. Major renovations were necessary to Percy's van so she's relocated for a bit.

EZ xo

You're welcome. Mine was good- hope yours was.

I don't think there's enough votes to make me a delegate. Oh well. Thank you anyway!

And we await Percy's return.

I'm back.... sorry about not telling you all that I'd be away.

Took some time off of work to recuperate from surgery and then returned to work with deadlines. All is good.

How are you all doing?

Hello Percy, and welcome back! No need to apologize-- glad you're recovering.

I'm in my rounds of in and out of doctor's offices. Fun, fun, fun....

Hey Perc! So happy to have you back in the hood - hope all went well. That new paint job on your van looks fantastic. "Portland Fog" was the perfect color!
As I write on this very crisp, Norcal night - sipping a Maker's and orange bitters - my mind has been ping-ponging, from one celestial corner to the other - keeps coming back to an MB connection. (she & I believe in that sh*te, you know, that's why she made me her daughter ;-) so maybe she's hanging in the psychic tent tonight.
Is everyone prepping for the big holiday brouhaha? You know - tape, ribbon, paper, chocolate, booze, receipts all over the house? And your cousin on the sofa for the next week? Every corner of my house smells like butter, oranges and chocolate with a healthy dose of booze thrown in! My kitchen island holds baskets of persimmons, Meyer lemons and tangerines and a box of dates, stuffed with almonds and rolled in coconut. Simple, California things.
Egg production is down, as it should be on these short, dark days. I don't believe in artificial stimulation (nor do I have a need) for tricking the birds into thinking it's April by adding light and heat to the coop. What they're providing me is more than enough for holiday baking and my daily organic egg consumption. (plus a healthy ration for 2 neighbors.)
In 3 days, we'll be winging our way eastward - Mimes, I'll honk as I pass - this time, flying into Key West. The holidays coincide beautifully this year - hanging ornaments & lighting candles will go hand in hand. I've shipped the gifts and cases of wine and within hours of my arrival, I'll be wearing an apron - even over a swimsuit! (Mimeleh, I may need your help!!!)
I'll be in touch soon. In the meantime, treat yourselves well and after all of these years, I love you and I'm grateful for you in my life.

Peaceful dreams,
EZ xox

I'm back!


How were the Holidays?

Hello! Happy 2017. Holidays were quiet. Except for the neighbors blowing up things with what I felt were grenades and missiles. But I could be off...
