I miss my bus

I was just sitting here, not doing much, and just thought about my bus -- where it is, how it's been, whether or not the windows were closed when that last thunderstorm barreled through. I don't know -- I kind of miss my bus. Sad, isn't it?

The last time I saw Bus No. 6, Eduardo the Transportation Guy was hosing the engine down, cleaning off all the dirt and grime and dried-on cow poop. I get a lot of cow poop during the year.

I would think most bus drivers wouldn't give a second thought to their bus during summer vacation. Am I just weird, or what?

Anyways, I don't have anything philosophical to say, I was just wondering about my bus. But I suppose in a few weeks, when I'm back in "the beast" delivering Little Johnny and Little Emma to school and back, I WILL have something to say -- oh boy, will I have things to say.

Oh poor Bud Driver! I actually had a dream that mine was all wrecked and bashed up. We must love our jobs too much. :) Enjoy your time off.

You're not the only one who feels this way. I know for the first 2-3 weeks of summer vacation its great, no screaming kids, no way early mornings, no responsibility. But after that, i'm also ready to get back to work and see the kids again.

I have a second job driving for transit in between bus routes, and transit doesnt compare to the school bus at all.
