    9.5.2016

  • Our area school buses often turn around in our big drive-way. My hat is tipped, generously to our great neighbors and drivers of these big machines, Billy Sanchez and Alvin Martinez.

    Our three kids made enough noise riding in the back seat of our station wagon long ago to drive their father or me nuts as we transported them to town when necessary.

    And now, when these three adults get together they laugh about the fun and games of riding the bus. Things have changed all for the better now, starting with paved roads on most of the routes.
