Our Local Celebrity

When we moved down here, I kept seeing this very bizarre van in town.  What on earth?  :)  Turns out it belongs to a lady who also raises and shows her Afghan Hounds.  As far as I can figure out, she is a smoker and a defender of smokers' rights.  She has taken her van and made it into a political statement.  It's best to find the van parked somewhere and read the signs and things on it, or you would surely drive off the road trying to do so.  She is even mentioned in Wikipedia for Edmonton.
I have been stalking the town, waiting for a opportunity to take a photo of it, but either I'd see the van and not have the camera, or the reverse.  :)  However, I happened to find this website where there are some great photos of it, so will direct you all there to take a peek!
Oh, and she also decorates it for the various holidays.  Christmas was....stunning...I can't think of another word for it.  There is just no good word to describe it.  In these photos, it is decorated for Valentine's Day.
But God Bless her for being able to express her opinion in her own way.  It certainly does get attention and gets her message out to people. There is no mistaking her feelings on several subjects!
Only in Kentucky..... :)

  1. Okay, that was interesting. But I'm still not going to start smoking again, sorry.
