No Short-Bus Jokes, Please

Bus jokes that are short are fine.

This afternoon Phil took the school bus home from pre-school. He actually started his adventure at around 11:30a, but didn't get dropped off until 12:15p Most kids live one to a long winding street, so it takes awhile. There were still 2-3 kids on the bus when Phil got dropped off; at least he didn't have a lonely ride home. Here are some pix: And the father put down the digital camera and gathered up the boy in his arms. "O frabjous day! Calloo! Callay!" he chortled in his joy ... no, wait, wrong story.

At any rate, it was the boy's first bus ride without his parents. If anyone wants to spot him Greyhound fare, he's ready to come see you now that this milestone has passed.

Wow. Not long until Phil will be ready to visit me in "Kanga"land on his own!!

Yep, all we need is a really long bridge and a southbound bus.

How's summer treating ya down under?

Summer? We've had floods (140mm of rain in 24 hours), and on one day the temperature dropped from 97F to 64F within a few hours! Not many stinkin' hot days luckily.

Other than that, it has been good.

You took all the fun out of my day, Chris. Glad he made it home safe & sound.

Separation is a good thing! And I can relate about the shoe wars. Nothing worse than getting almost-out-the-door and then having a conflict.

My son has sock issues. So this year, damn the cost, he has 24 -- yes, 4 weeks worth -- of Gold Toe socks. The only kind I've found that prevent last minute fuss attacks.
