Hey Marci- You won't believe what I saw today while driving down the road this big ol' freaken yellow monster of a bus was in front of me. THe funny thing is though it had oranges cones hanging off the back and there were at least 2-3 cats spinning from the back tires. Just wondering if this might have been you while on your little adventure today. Oh and by the way now that Rob knows you can drive a bus, I know that he will be expecting me to at least learn how to back the snowmobile, house trailer, and any other type of trailer we have. No pressure at all. Anyways I am soooooooo proud of you. Way to go girl. Love ya

My mom was a school bus driver back in the 80's before I was born. She loved doing it! I have a nervous breakdown just driving my dad's big F-250 truck.

thank you to all those who left encouraging comments and the rest of you...well you know what you can do!

den...it was totally me...crap i was hoping no-one i knew would see me. i tried not to hit those cats but that damn bus is just too unmanageable! yesterday i backed through a serpentine...can you believe that? i don't even like to back up the truck! thank you sweet lady.

jenr~everyone that i have talked to has worked as a bus driver for like 20ish years and loves the heck out of it...hopefully i will too!

and again...thank you for the sweet words of encouragement!
