Student Bus Driver

I should not be surprised that there are student bus drivers. I mean, I don’t think they just jump onto the bus and know how to drive it. And I suppose that part of the bus drivers’ ed would have to include driving on Route 80 west in NJ and learning how to maneuver the GW Bridge. But does it have to be while I am on the road?

Note the double yield signs on the left side. Not sure what they say but I would imagine one says ‘Yield’ and the other one says ‘Seriously, we are not kidding YIELD!

I guess I should have one of these on the back of my car if I am going to continue to take these shots while I am driving.

Dan in Danville


Seriously, it is not child abuse when they are willingly participating in a humiliating act. Actually, this is the second time Danny and I have staged a shot like this. We love these machines. It makes me laugh because when his sister was little we had more than one meltdown in front of one of these machines soon after I had used the words, “This is absolutely the LAST quarter”.

This weekend is college tour roadtrip volume one. Hard to believe we are doing this with ‘the baby’ but we surely are. The pediatrician was right, nobody goes off to college still wearing diapers.

On the long strange trip of Route 80 to Penn State from NY we came across a town called Danville and new that we HAD to stop there for dinner. At Perkins! Everyone loves Perkins! I have fond college memories of the Perkins in Rochester (at 3AM).

So this is Danny in Danville. And yes he carries my warped affection for the absurd. After all, I labored with this child on my birthday and he was born at 1AM the next morning. 

We are practically twins!
