Velma Melmac

Phil Frank's comic strip "Farley" ( a San Fransisco political satirist) has a character that some of us may have encountered in natural settings an other places that trailer's go...Thelma Melmac...The rangers at Yosemite dread her arrival every Summer...when she arrives and enscouces herself and her cat and chihuahua in the airconditioned trailer on astroturf...She is a neat freak and vacuums the dirt around her camp and dons herslef and pets in hazmat suits and masks and heavily bombs the valley floor with potent insecticides...I don't believe this is a syndicated comic strip but you can see it online at Farley...then archives...dates july 9, 11, 13 and today feature Velma...The whole strip is funny...One of my favorites.
Hopefully trailer campers won't be given this awful stereotype.

We were in a beautiful campground (Henderson Beach, Florida) and kept hearing a sound that sounded like a vaccumn cleaner next door. We speculated on what it was because of course who vaccumns while camping? This horrid sound went on for hours! Finally we got up the nerve to check it out. The neighbors had removed all of the furniture from their large white 5th wheel and were shampooing it with a giant machine!!!
