trying not to jinx it...

I have a wicked bus crush.  Because this is a prison bus, the windows are a lot smaller and I have a feeling it is going to be easier cutting out a few bigger windows than shutting up and welding in a bunch.  I also feel like the idea of a blue bird prison bus being attached to a lifestyle change called "fly the coop" is is kind of perfect, no?

fly the coop
Fig. to escape; to get out or get away. (Alludes to a chicken escaping from a chicken coop.) I couldn't stand the party, so I flew the coop. The prisoner flew the coop at the first opportunity.

Please keep your fingers crossed that it's not a dud...  we shall know on Wednesday... if the guy doesn't get another offer before then...

Keep your fingers crossed for us, would ya?

toot all. too tall.

So the bus of my dreams is apparently a short girl's dream.  Specifically, school busses tend to have less headroom than city or coach busses.  The Blue Bird we went to look at was sweet.  Period.  It sounded amazing, ran great, was mechanically sound, single owner, awesome price... but 3ft too short in length and 3inches too short in height.

The search continues...
