Wordless Wednesday: Back to basics this week...

Been a while since I visited Ian's Bus Stop... and scavenged some goodly Wordless material! (These ones from his photos from Worcester Park Running Day)

For the learned, yes, this is a "dream photo" for me with TWO RLH buses... and a lovely RT too. RLH 61 and RLH 23 together...

...had to do ONE green one for ya! (RT 3148 to be precise!)

Thanks, as always, to Ian's Bus Stop for the photos!

Are you going to paint eyes on your buss when you get it, or maybe something a little more paranormal? Love that shot.
Have great WW.

Now those are classics... even if most of them are red.

Hey DrillerAA... Honestly, I'll probably keep it more or less "true to form". Don't need to (and really don't want to) advertise the hobby on the other hobby! (Not above finding a neat way to incorporate some of my 1812 emblems on it though!)

Hi CK Go Places... The "eyes" do seem to have it!

Hello Penelope Anne... You? Silly? NEVER! :)

Hey there CatSynth... Gotta mix it up a touch!

Howdy Randall... Well, I have a fondness for Country Buses... but good ol' LT Red is fine too!

I've never seen the blue and green variety before. Very nice borrowings.

This blog is called One Old Green Bus. Yup, the bus is green. What colour is the bus?

Nov. 30th 2008 - Jan. 7th 2009

Due to a LARGE amount of projects which are mostly "offline", I will only be "blogging" Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Sundays unless something REALLY begs me to blog about it.
Thanks for your understanding in this and be back to "full time blogging mode" come January 7th!

One Old Green Bus

Allow me to start with we do not own nor are we selling a bus. Just had to get that out...

This blog was started in April of 2006... during a very bad time for me and my family when money was very tight and life was very hard.

We maintained a happier outlook on life by fantasizing... talking about what we would do when times were better... and as Sue and myself are Anglophiles, England factored greatly into our "plans".

During these bad times, while looking at news items which, at the time included items about London removing their venerable old Routemasters, I came across one photo of an old green bus... and somehow, my whole family adopted it. It became very much "our bus". (Details about "our bus" are available by clicking here.)

Like most of you, I'd heard about the fellow who'd made a million dollars selling tiny ads online... and the fellow who did trades and turned a paper clip into a house... so I thought, since we couldn't make our bus actually into "our bus" (well beyond our means,) I'd try an "online" appeal... to make the focused item of our hopes into a tangible thing in our lives...

More specifically, in a burst of adult/juvenile optimism, I had hoped to show the youngest member of the family, who at the time was still very youthful and impressionable, that dreams really could become reality if you hope and, more importantly, try.

Well, I'm pretty sure you figured it out... we had limited succes in this venture... and the youngest has now reached an age where she is more traditionally "teenaged" cynical than much else about the world, which isn't a dreadful thing... but there's a "good news" portion to this... our personal situation with money is better, life has improved, and some people really liked my rambling here... so, I decided to keep things going... Yes, I will "give up" on asking for help on a bus... and have to give up on even trying as hard to get the bus through online means... and yes, be far more realistic... but I don't mind this "turn" of things as I actually enjoy venting, trying my hand at humour, and generally keeping on online presence outside my usual things.

Thanks to those who were/are "Busly Dream" enthusiasts... I suppose that our buses for now will be single-deck with the letters "TTC" emblazoned on them... but this blog will live as does our dream! (It's just a little quieter on that latter bit...)
