Vanessa is our little home away from home. She was born January 17, 2013 when we picked her up from the custom van conversion company Sportsmobile in Huntington, Indiana.We named her Vanessa for “Van odyssey”. Our uncle Den, who named his yacht “Dovekie”, told us that seven letters and a repeated vowel bring good luck. I hope this works as well for us as it did for him. And I hope it works better than it did for the Titanic.
