PayPerPost gets something from us for a change!

Originally, this was a "red" toy bus with a whackload of touristy crap-tacular paint and decals... but, I took fine steel wool to it and removed the decals and "special" paints, primed it with metal primer, then painted it a lovely hunter-green (three coats) using safer folk-art acrylic paints... then, with the help of a an inkjet (which was NOT cooperating at all colour-wise!) and some labels which Sue applied...

Voila!

Yup, The PayPerPost Old Green Bus was born!

Now, why are we (Sue and I) doing this?

Well, PayPerPost, which we do a lot of posting with/for, had requested framed photos of their "posties" to adorn a wall in their office... and although we'd be honoured to be there, Sue feels it should rightly be me there as I'm the primary "normal" poster to the blog here... Trust me, Sue ain't camera shy...

Well, I am... and also considering how ill I've been these last nine days, well... I look sorta like this...

Egads!

Actually, I look exactly like the above photo... which ain't purdy in my humble opinion...

We even toyed with an appropriate spokesmodel in our steed...

Our Model - Please Look After This Model

...but couldn't come to terms on compensation for the work...

Ergo: We're just sending them the bus...

They can then leg-wrestle over who gets to have it on their desk or play with it at their office.

We hope they like their gift! It went in the mail today!

...and yes, it's been properly disinfected to avoid the Canucklehead germs I may still have loitering about in my system thanks to this dreadful bronchitis!

Busly!

Oh, if you're wondering (and I'm sure you were...) it's not an RLH like our (hopeful) bus... but a Titan TD Model bus.

...and if you haven't PLEASE scroll down a bit and read the earlier post titled Somedays, it's all worth it... It's short and it made me VERY happy! I hope it has the same affect for you!

The standard last note on the old blog... PLEASE SUPPORT THE DREAM!

This blog is here to help promote a dream that an entire family shares... that dream is to rescue an old London Double-Decker bus.

RLH 3

Please, if you have a few minutes, take some time to find out more about this bus and the kooky dream by clicking here.

This bus is VERY special to myself and the whole family, and any help any person can lend us would be most gratefully accepted.

If you or someone you know might be interested, there's our tiny banner site, HelpCoverTheBus.Com and a PayPal donation button (see the upper-right hand side of the blog) and, of course, a Cafe Press shop for T-Shirts and shtuff!
(...and who doesn't need some shtuff!)

Please help us make this dream a reality and save a piece of history!

We thank you for your support!

Please Note: We are also hoping for help from a public relations/marketing standpoint... If you might be able to assist OR know someone who might be willing to, please click here and read this entry...

Hey MsDemmie... We still have a couple or three buses left! You might just get one yourself! :)

One Old Green Bus

This blog is (more or less) about the attempts to acquire a dusty, old, double-decker bus...restore, and refurbish her...for use as a camper/RV, and day tripper for fun, and travel

The bus is a Regent Low Height (to be exact, RLH 3) in Santa Rosa, California... To purchase and ship it to our home in Toronto, Ontario, Canada will require a minimum of $20k in US dollars to achieve...

As goofy as it may seem, owning this old, dusty, non-running, needs a tonne of work bus would be a dream come true for our family.
