Re: Slice Of Life -- OMG, what have I started

Bansil, Thanks for the AWESOME welcome.. everybody else too!

The very FIRST thing I am doing is painting to get legal .. gotta be legal lol. I am leaving all the black bits black and painting the yellow bits white. Eventually I'd like to make a black stripe that will graduate from top to bottom covering the windows that I am blocking ending with covering the two bottom windows of the doors. I saw something similar on another skoolie and liked the idea.

I really can't take credit for Gonzo's name.. I swear he picked it himself. When I got him on the way home I kept thinking what will I name you ..? When I would talk to him Gonzo just came out .. I have no idea why.. eventually I just said FINE, you want to be called Gonzo so Gonzo it is ..kinda magical IMO.

Got another delivery yesterday.. can't wait til Friday when I go pick it up.. here's the pic of latest deliveries!

I won't share his name I'll just say he offered from one of the conversion groups I joined over there... In the end the school I bought the bus from provided me with all he'd given me ...and much more!!
