Hi Diane,

Great motor home. No on the Mexican food, we are running over to Fresh Market for fresh tuna steaks and shrimp. If you change your mind and want seafood come on over. (o:

Diane,
For a minute there I thought you got a new car.
Yes I will be there for dinner with you, don't I wish. Maybe we would have time to stop at the thrift store.

That's the magic bus. LOL. My brother used to sing that song every time the church bus took his boys to bible school. LOL I like the spacy picture you made . Hope you are having wonderful weather..it almost seems like fall here some days. Blessings to you and your hiking pal. xoxo,Susie

Carola Bartz said...

A very cool bus indeed! I like all the happy colors and this kind of a hippie feeling.
I took three teenage girls to a mall in a place closer to San Francisco today because they wanted to shop at H&M which we don't have in our town. It was a lot of fun - 16 year olds can be so entertaining.

Jill said...

Love that bus! I would have taken a few pics too!

Crafty in the Med said...

Just what I've been looking for.....a beautiful bus like this!!
LOL. How unusual and interesting.
I'm guessing the owners have no problem with people seeing them on the road.
Today is hair day for me!! cover these roots!! Hope your day is filled with Blessings...

bj said...

Did you see any Flower Children around that cool bus?? :)

Kathy said...

Hi Diane,
That is really a cool bus......
I am sure kids would like it...
wonder what it is used for or is it
just a landmark of some kind.
Neat you got to see it tho.

My daughter thinks the Cantina in
the Biltmore shopping area has
great mexican too.
I also saw your pics a few posts
back, they look so familiar!! lol We can never get enough of
God's beautiful creation, can we!

Have a blessed day,
Nellie

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

Hi Diane--
I can't believe someone didn't say that bus looks like a 'hippy' bus--
but then not sure they were 'that' colorful!!!
I forgot to ask you if you live on the east or west coast of Fl???
have fun--
hugs, di and miss gracie

Patty Sumner said...

I love the bus, it is so bright and colourful. I don't blame you for wanting to take photo's. It certainly evokes the 60's and 70's
