As a child my plane crashed in the Himalayas & I was raised by an advanced civilisation that taught me photography, ESP & precognition, no, wait that was the Champions wasn’t it?

Ah well, 50+ & getting more muddled by the day.

    Hey NICE grab BP. A few years ago I organised a “Magical Mystery Tour” as a fund raiser and sold 65 tics@ $60ea it was a big success + very popular nite of crazy creative events all over Melbourne Vic OZ in a Red Double Decker that looked very similar with the driver’s seating position over the engine like this one. CHEERS for giving me my memories back of a great happy friendly evening.

  • Glad to be of service,

    Lovely capture, When I was driving buses one of the drivers created his own open top Leyland PD2 when he went under the wrong bridge :) Fortunately he was empty at the time.

  • Thanks Dave,

    Did he keep his job?

    He kept a job, thanks to the union :( but not as a driver fortunately!

  • Somehow I thought you’d say something like that. My brother used to be a bus driver, and I think he thought “on the buses” was a documentary.

    ‘On the Buses’ wasn’t anywhere near as funny as real life. There’s this story…

  • Ha!

    The nearest I’ve come is Father Ted. When you’ve been educated by catholic Nuns & Priests it takes on a whole new meaning!
