The School Bus Dream

Hi folks. I’m sorry I hadn’t published anything on a Wednesday lately. I just simply hadn’t had anything to write about, untill today.

This is going to sound strange but as a kid I had this fascination with buses and in particular, old school buses. My favorites are the ones that would operate with manual transmission and with the putt putt engines. I used to hear trucks with the same sound as those buses all the time and I would be wishing I was in one of them, even with the bumpedy bumpedy bumps along the way.

I actually liked sitting at the front so I could hear the bus being driven and I never liked it when everyone was talking because it drouned out the sound of the bus moving and or running.

Every few nights or so I have had this dream about riding one of those buses again and I would hear the sound of the first gear in the dream. I hope that those old buses are around somewhere and also, hopefully in Canada. I would love it if I could ride on one of them again so I could hear what they sounded like and remember what they sounded like, going up a gear and on the highway and gearing down.

I would also love to ride on one of the modern buses too but nothing has come up to allow me the opportunity for this to happen. The only buses I’ve ridden on lately are public transit buses and inner-city coaches. They don’t pale in comparison to the school bus but I miss writing on those vehicles anyway. If there is such an opportunity for this to happen, I hope it’s me who gets to ride on those buses again… So I can smell the smells and touch the seats and the windows. Maybe I can finally learn how to open and shut them too and touch The stanchions as I get on and off the bus.

This dream has been going on for a few years now, since June 1993, when I last rode on one of the older buses like that and this Youtube video also made me compose this post. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qLabunH3CIc
Anyone have any idea how old this bus is in this video? I’m just asking. Anyway, that’s all I have for today.
