High Weirdness With The Bus and Me...

This is a repost... well, a re-edit and re-post... I don't feel TOO bad about this as, if you look below, there's a "Blogtalkers" post from earlier today AND a "Blog Your Blessing Sunday"... but I had a request to re-post the "synchronicities" that exist with the bus and ourselves...


#1: Sue and I really chose our neighbourhood from the heart. We live in a place that isn't terribly handy to either of our work places (back when we moved) and we knew there were "issues" with moving into an old building with NO ELEVATOR (fourth floor walk-up) and NO AIR CONDITIONING (low amp circuits can't handle them)... but we loved (and love) the place SO much, that we have no intentions of moving until we purchase a home... and we're hoping to stay in the neighbourhood...

We literally visited the area (and building) on a fluke during a stroll for some exorcise... and JUST after Sue said she would NEVER live in an apartment building during this walk, I pointed to this one and said, How about that one? and she said, Yes. I like that one.

The next week, we visited again and KISMET! There was a two-bedroom just made available... we applied... and we're in it now as I type.

Again, this all pre-dates finding the bus... and the dream... but it's our neighbourhood and here we are.

Fast-forward to a few scant months ago, the blog here is in full swing and we're trying to make our dream of owning RLH 3 a reality...

While looking through old Toronto Transit information, I found that Toronto Transit DID run double-deckers (see the pic above)... way back when our building was brand new... and those old double-deckers ran on ONE route only...

Guess what it passed on it's journeys to and fro?

Yup, our apartment building.


#2: One of it's former residences was in Roswell, New Mexico ...and the fact that Sue's a Ufologist and we both study the paranormal makes this one's my favourite! We don't know (yet) if the bus is haunted... but considering it's journeys, if we find ANY debris from a UFO in the bus, we'll let everyone know.

#3: RLH 3 began life on May 31st, 1950... and I began life on May 31st, 1967... so we share a birthday.

LT Bus Stop

#4: When last in England, I use to take a long walk through London almost every night... it ends up that the route I walked was RLH 3's "centre city" route when it came in from the country... this was it's longest lasting route when in service. Needless to say, the last time I was in London was 1995 and I knew nothing of RLH 3... I just liked the walk.

Advance, by the centre, MARCH!

#5: While "Googling" RLH 3, I came across this...

Table of contents for Battlegrounds of freedom : a historical guide to the battlefields of the War of American Independence / Norman Desmarais.

RLH-3: Re-enacting, family activities, children and cooking.

...which I found weird since we're (the family) War of 1812 re-enactors.

...and for those wondering, RLH 3 is "Regent Low Height 3" to us... yup, our bus...

...and I've often joked that we would be "back in the field" with the re-enactors when we could drive there in our bus.


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.


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...
