I Hear It All, I See It All
Lets hear it for weather change!
From tripple digits to 80's make a huge difference and it helps our busses as well. Lack of humidity and lower temps means we can roll without breaking down. Multiple times last week we ran out of busses or drivers or both. This week we are all good.
Ok lets start rolling
The Mobile Office of 2012
This guy waiting for the bus is relaxing enjoying the new free life of the Mobile office. Only these dang smartphone screens are so hard to see.. Thus was born the bag cover for your new droid phone. Allows you to see that screen even in bright sun.
Overheard Chapter 1
Ok for this quote I need a little background, When it's hot the fan that blows on the driver, blast air over the fare it can blow the money around. Ok now you know enough.
Woman: "I can't get it in"
Bus driver: "It works best.."
Woman: (To the fan) "Stop blowing me! I don't Blow y...."
She looks up and starts to blush.

Rider 1: "Do you like jellow"

Rider 2: " Sometime I catch another bus"
These two friends went on and on like this, Like two ships passing in the night their convesations only bumped into one another ever once in a while.
I just looked up as this passed and was lucky to get this shot while waiting for my bus. I don't know what it is but it looks like a lot of work. If it's ever done I want to see it.

On The Bright Side
Two bus drivers talking on the way to their cars after work.
Bus Driver 1: "You know what Trimet will make me when they pay us our two and half years of back pay?"
Bus Driver 2: "You mean after taxes and all?"
Bus Driver 1: "Yup I will be a thousandair!"
Bus Driver 2: "Look Out Las Vegas here we come!"
Old Husband: "We've been married for fifty five years"
Old Wife: "Yup fifty five years in September"
Old Husband: "Hasn't been a cake walk I can tell you"
Old Wife: "Nope, had to be sexy in Depends. "
( Everyone on the bus recoiled )
On my trip to the coast rode the 1911 Astoria Trolly, AWESOME!

The Case of the Lost Boots #1
Woman runs on to my bus gasping for air.
Woman: "Have you seen a pair of shoes on your bus"
Woman: "has anyone turned in a pair of shoes to you, they are dark blue with brass buttons up the side, each button is a star burst."
Woman: "Are you sure!"
Me: (Bite tongue) "Yes.. yes I'm sure. You wanna check the bus?"
Woman: "I don't have time for that, it's one of busses down here."
She runs off to check the other busses.
The Case of the Lost Boots #2
At the next stop. Homeless woman gets off, dirty clothing, backpack, sign asking for money and yes a new pair of fantastic boots.
Me: "Are those your boots I ask looking them over"
Rider: "Bitch should have checked the bus."
Old Time Trolly Controls:
I have no idea how some of this old stuff can look so dang cool. The old Astoria Oregon trolly is a real treat. Oh and by the way you can go see the Goonies house in Astoria a life time even for us geeks.
Well That's it for this week you have made it to the half way point. Hope you had a laugh.
