Until a few years ago, vans were commercial vehicles used mostly by business firms as delivery trucks. Today, the van has become a palace on wheels. It is a place where the owner of a van, called vanner, can relax, visit with good friends, eat, drink, sleep and even watch television.
A van may often look like an art museum on wheels. The exterior of vans is a visual feast of colors and styles. Many vans have paintings of various kinds on the sides. Each van is decorated and finished to reflect the personality of its owner. The most luxurious（豪华的）van has TV, a refrigerator and a sink, etc. Some even have paintings on the walls.
Van is very popular with young married couples with small children, and with young people, such as high school and university students. The latter frequently use their vans for traveling parties, often going from place to place, or city to city, gathering friends along the way.

When I was a little girl, my brothers and I collected stamps for many years. My mother didn’t use to work during the week, but she worked in the post office near our house on Saturdays, and she used to bring home all the new stamps as soon as they were issued (发行).
On the day of the World Cup football final in London in 1966, we were very excited because England were playing West Germany in the final. When we were having lunch, my mother told us to go to the post office straightaway after the match if England won, but she didn’t tell us why. At 2 o’clock my mother went back to work as usual, while the rest of the family were watching the football on TV at home. Although she wasn’t watching the match, she was listening to it on the radio.
England won 4:2 and so my brothers and I ran to the post office. As we burst in, my mother was standing behind the counter. She was waiting to sell us a very special limited edition with ENGLAND WINNERS on each stamp. We were over the moon.
