The Vantastic Blue Betty, Part I

My latest Notes from a Polite New Yorker column begins to document my adventure retrieving a van from Long Island.

What would have been a horrible and maddening day became a fun adventure thanks to spending much of the day with Jon P., also known as The Beast, and our mutual friend Joey Bones. The company you keep is very important, never more so than when things go wrong, and I was in the best of company that day.

The story of Blue Betty is not over; it is being written as we speak. She currently sits in my mother’s yard in Westchester. How she got there is a long story.
