Blog Your Blessings Sundays - Lucky Seven

Just for something a touch different... allow me to post SEVEN quick blessings for this Sunday... I may expand on some of these later on and "flesh them out" a touch, but for now... here's SEVEN QUICK BLESSINGS!

Why seven? Well, because "seven" is considered lucky... and who doesn't need a little luck now and again?


#1: Spring has arrived, the weather is warmer, people are cheering up and heading outdoors again as the temperature improves. It's difficult to be in a sour mood when this is happening...


#2: Sue is doing MUCH better from a "person nearby" perspective. Although most of any understanding needs to go to her, dealing with a person who's having "adrenaline storms" (sudden rages) can be quite taxing... but we've survived the storms... and she's doing great!


#3: Remember how I was getting so horribly nauseated with the intolerant "extreme-right-wing" bloggers in Canada... they are starting to breath their last with a series of scandals on the right AND finally official censure from their own parties for their racist, sexist, and generally intolerant behaviour. This has made me VERY bright the last few days... if only we can get this moron now to step down, I'll start liking MY Canada a lot more... again. (Oh, wanna see where this has sent the right-wing bloggers and to what extent... and why I know they're in a downward spiral? Click here...)


#4: If you are not a "dog person", then this next blessing won't mean much... if you are, then what a blessing it is to come home to your dogs. There are NO creatures on Earth that are this happy JUST to see you walk in the door. It's an amazing way to come home after a hard day's work.


#5: New Doctor Who season started! Sue and I watched the first episode of the new season yesterday and... well... I'll save our feelings for another day, but the show is a blessing on several levels... It entertains us. It makes us think... and it's something we watch as a family and look forward to.


#6: 7 months smoke-free for Sue and I... and still counting! Woo-hoo!


#7: There's still hope for a miracle to make our dream come true... As I wrote Friday, there's been no new movement from the "other buyer" that we know of so we're still in the game! There's always hope... and we're continuing to plug along...

The Current Time in Toronto is...


One Old Green Bus

This blog was started in April of 2006... its original itent was really twofold. One was to be a "sounding board" for it's author... and the other... well...

At the time we started this, your humble author was unemployed and going through the usual crisis situations that arise from being jobless.

We (my wife, stepdaughter, and I,) used to "amuse" ourselves (read: Take our minds off our troubles) by more-or-less fantasizing as a family about what we'd do when things "turned around". Along this route, we discussed going to England on a vacation... and in that, alighted on "double-decker buses".

We kind of adopted one bus... Regent Low Height 3... as Our Bus... and we used to talk about what we'd do with "our bus" if we got it... from fixing it up to the trips we'd take on it.

Along the way, we became students of the history of this bus which HONESTLY seemd it was truly for us... trouble was, we couldn't afford the bus and weren't in a position to work towards the bus... so we had a couple of options...

Since the bus' position was sketchy (there's a chance she might be sold for scrap or "carved up" in other ways,) we could forget about her and pretend she didn't exist...

...or we could TRY... ask for help... put our dream of owning and saving "One Old Green Bus" into the universe and see what happens...

As of February, 2008, we knew that there was a perspective buyer for the bus (not us, obviously,) and made some difficult decisions... The first was that we wouldn't "beg" for help anymore and give the little money we received to a few different charities both online and off... and the second was simply hope that either we find a corporate sponsor (for an "ad" idea we have, click here to about read that,) or even a patron who see's the value in a silly family's dream...

But, if the bus is about to be purchased by someone who's planning on restoring it and they "get there first", we wish them well and are glad that at least Our One Old Green Bus is in a safe place being looked after.

For now, though, we are still hoping WE might be the ones to get our One Old Green Bus and see a family dream come true...

Regardless, this blog WILL continue... and we will still "go for" a bus of our own... but this blog will ALWAYS be dedicated to our own One Old Green Bus.
