Re: My new B700 Thomas

Thought I'd better post something even though progress on the bus has come to a halt.

I've been living in this small town in southern Idaho the last year trying to take care of my father's house after he died last October. Jobs here are a nightmare. This last week I moved to Boise and I'm staying with my cousin until I get on my feet. The problem is that he has no room for my bus here so it is in storage at my brother's house for now. With the bus being 130 miles away, there will be no working on it for a while.

About the only thing I've gotten done on the bus lately is primering it. I decided to do this just to get rid of the yellow so the vandals will leave it alone. In this first picture, the roof hasn't been primered yet, but it's done now. Now that it's primered, I haven't had any problems with morons painting stuff on it.

Hopefully now that I'm in Boise, a decent job will be a little easier to find and I can get the bus up here so I can work on it now and then. Unfortunately, I will have to rent a space at a storage to have a place to do any work on it. It's sad to see it just sitting at my brother's house being used as a storage unit.
What doesn't kill you only makes you... stranger.

Boy-in the picture (on my puter anyways) it looks like a light purple (lavender?) I kinda like it just like that.
Don't make a fuss-just get on the bus!

On my computer, second picture looks a bit lavender as well.. Brings back 1958,, and Oldsmobile 98 with lavender and white paint...and tons of chrome.
