Is France a country? Are they hungry? Do they speak French in Budapest?

World Aids Day - Dec. 1st
Please click the image above...

Okay, PLEASE go read today's "Busly Saturday" below... but I had to jump in and share this... which I found on Perez Hilton's blog...

It's a video of "American Idol" contestant, Kellie Pickler proving to the universe that NOT ONLY is she NOT "Smarter Than a Fifth Grader"... but chances are a bucket of slop could probably out-think her.

MENSA will not be calling on Ms. Pickler anytime soon.

...and people wonder why the world has such a low opinion of Americans... when this train-wreck ends up being an "Ambassador" for the people of the States and it's understanding of the nations of the world.

As Perez Hilton says, she makes Miss Teen South Carolina look like a freakin’ genius.

Yup.

We now return you to our normally scheduled bloggage...

Busly Saturdays - COUGH! COUGH! COUGH! (Ad Nauseum...)

World Aids Day - Dec. 1st
Please click the image above...

What a freakin' week! I spent MOST of this week coughing my breath away thanks to a BRUTAL chest cough... the doctor gave me an inhaler and some meds and SLOWLY but surely, I'm coming out of breathless haze.

That said, there were SOME things of note this week, aside from my phlegmy existence...

To get the usual over with...

No, there was no fiscal moves with the bus... (No new money has come in.)

No, as far as we know, the bus is STILL in Santa Rosa and is still in it's barn being used as a large garbage can which is still sad.

Okay, now that those two points are out of the way...

Last week, I joined the INFAMOUS "FaceBook" zombie-nation... according to one friend, who welcomed me with the words, Welcome to FaceBook! Here's your accordion!

Well, to solidify my turning to the EVIL that is known as the "Book" of "Faces", I beseech thee all to consider joining my support group that, indeed, I built...

Friends of One Old Green Bus

(Click the words above if you have a FaceBook account and you'll be at the group's page...)

C'mon and support the whacky bus folks on FaceBook!

___________________________

In other news, AS REPORTED YESTERDAY, there's ANOTHER bus.

Gosh, that SO sounds like There's another woman!, but as I said in my post yesterday, this does NOT mean we're switching gears from trying to acquire our one old green bus!

The Reader's Digest version of this other bus...

It's in Illinois (which admittedly is MUCH closer than California to us,) and it's owner MUST move it in a couple of weeks... no options... and he can no longer afford it...

That said, $2,200.00 is needed to purchase the bus...

...or it WILL be scrapped.

This isn't a threat, it's the sad reality of the situation. The fellow simply can't do it any longer...

Now, in my post yesterday, I pointed out that it would be a MAGNIFICENT Christmas gift to hear one of two things...

One is that ANYONE with a "good home" and some time bought it to spare it from the wreckers...

The other is, SURE, after talking with Sue, we'd be HAPPY to take this on as a project and try to work with this bus... if someone was so inclined as to get "us" a Christmas gift! :)

Sadly, at $2,200.00 combined with an estimate of about $2,000.00 for shipping and the lot... it's STILL too much for us. Things have improved for us, and perhaps in August I could have the dough... but right now...

Right, now that you're filled in...

Sue and a FEW other people, after seeing the picture, have let us know that THEY feel this bus WILL BE OURS...

Weird... but that's the scuttle-butt.

Considering the condition of the bus (which isn't TERRIBLE... but not good either...click here and scroll down a bit to the 1948 Leyland PD-1 to see more pics...) this one would not be a pure "conservation job"... but a retro-fit...

...but the blog would go on... and we would NOT give up on RLH 3 which is special to us on a few levels...

...but we'd love to tackle this bus anyway and Christmas is here! (Hint-hint!) :)

We've been good... HONEST!

___________________________

I was shocked... no, freaked out that in a recent survey of over 85,000 blogs... THIS BLOG IS IN THE TOP 20% for traffic and repeat visitors! According to one fellow, I'm internet famous for the combination of this blog and my decade-old ghostly stuff...

...internet famous, eh?

Hmmm...

...and, looking above, some folks wonder where this post came from.

___________________________

So, aside from the "hack-hacking" mixed with the "cough-coughing"... that's all there is to report for THIS week!

Who knows, perhaps this blog, in the next few weeks, will be RE-titled "One Old Green Bus/One Old Red Bus"!

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.

Need more info about this? Click here!
