I came across this camper van while walking Olga yesterday morning. (She went out for her regular walk, all the way around the neighborhood! I guess she was feeling energetic.) I like this kind of retro dolphin graphic on the side. It looks like something from an early '80s Ocean Pacific t-shirt.
Here's the whole thing:
It's a Mercedes Sprinter. Apparently the driver has had some clashes with the local parking authorities...
...as he makes clear in the passenger-side window.
Anyway, I don't think Olga will be walking this morning, as it's raining again.
I was sorry to see that Helen Reddy died this week. She was almost my mother's age, and such a phenomenon in the '70s -- I remember seeing her on "The Muppet Show" and Carol Burnett, and I distinctly remember her appearing on some awards show wearing a dress with a radically plunging neckline. In fact, I'm not even sure it had a neckline -- I think it plunged all the way to her waist. My dad had her greatest hits on 8-track and we sometimes listened to it in his car. (He was that kind of a cool, liberated dad. He could listen to "I Am Woman" and appreciate it, though I'm not sure my mom would agree that he completely absorbed the message.) Did you ever see the surreal animated video for the song "Angie Baby," made for some '70s TV show? Very creepy. But then, it's a creepy song.
