LOL, you guys crack me up! In all seriousness, the lipstick on a pig bus is on my pinterest inspiration board. I don't think I'll get quite that gingerbread with it, but I would love to make a skoolie that thinks it's a gypsy wagon. I could totally work this onto the back of a bus, right?

That would be easy to trim out the rear of a bus like that. this one is mostly flat surfaces and a lot of painting. It would be easy to cut the side panels similarly. The artistic part may be just beyond my grasp though.

Misty, lost my connection the other day then couldn't find the thread when I got back online. Yes I have a cat that allows me to live here so apparently this is actually a cat house. She has adapted to the bus but it took a number of cans of tuna to make that happen. It was a ferril cat that I had been unable to make friends with until it nearly starved and froze to death. Then it decided I could help. Now I get in trouble if I change things. She won't ride in the bus at all. She has gotten used to the idea that when I take the house to town I often come back with new cat food. She got named Dumas, because it sounded similar but nicer than what I was calling her. She sets on the porch and growls when there's coyotes. Who needs a dog?
This is a dead end road in the mountains about 15 minutes out of town and it seems to be the spot where people drop off unwanted cats and dogs. Most domestic animals don't seem to last long here because we have cougar, so we affectionately call dropped off animals cougar snacks. Animals that are smart enough to last until they make friends usually end up with a home again. It's a jungle out here.

That wagon reminds me of the creepy guy with the gypsy wagon on Wizard of Oz.

Haha, now I'm picturing some fake wheels mounted on the side of the bus...

Work with that idea. Envision a paddle wheel on the side of the bus so you can park by a river and produce power. I can see it now, you'll be the first person to mill flour in a bus.
