    Memories of the past

    This van was at our local Bi-Mart. I got such a chuckle seeing it.
    People were around taking pictures of it.

    Neat to see it. Lots of people driving old cars and trucks around here, not too many vans.

    I didn't see who owned it. I noticed the van as I was leaving the store.

    Perhaps they are on their own magical,mystery tour? I actually used to travel on the Magic Bus when I lived overseas - so this brings back memories...

    Cute van. It brought a smile to my face.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Omg Chasing Hawk what a coincidence. I've seen that van off and on, parked at a house down the street from me for months! Either there are 2 vans, or you live near me, or the van is traveling...

    The funny thing is, we've teased my 18 year old son about being the real-life Shaggy, with his haircut and his group of friends. He's Shaggy, he has a male friend who is blond and good-looking (Fred), another friend who honestly looks so much like Velma that that's actually what everyone calls her, and a second friend who could be Daphne. And our dog Zeus was Scooby Doo.

    Hi Peggy,

    I didn't pay any attention to the license plate on the van. It's the first time I have ever seen it. I happen to live in Central Oregon in a little town called La Pine.
    I am often surprised at things that happen around town. Ever since we built our wooden fence, and when the big gates are closed the outside world ceases to exist until we venture out....LOL

    I know La Pine!! Lovely area! I live just outside Vancouver. It is entirely possible it's the same van! How funny.
