As I was jogging down Broadneck Rd. yesterday, I came across some school buses returning to the stable for the night. I know most of us have a harrowing story or two to tell about school buses or their drivers, but god bless them for delivering our most dear cargo to and from school each day without driving off a cliff. We owe them a debt of gratitude. I bet they have more stories to tell about our kids than we have about them!
At least one of my uncles drove the local school bus down in the rural south back in the 50s. If I remember correctly, they could drive the buses when they were in high school. (I shudder to imagine one of our high schoolers behind the wheel of a bus full of kids!) One of those buses that my uncles drove ended up as grain storage on the farm for my Granddaddy Coke's hogs. We used to crawl around inside it and swim through the hog feed from seat to seat. It was a cool refuge on a hot, muggy South Carolina summer day.
A shout out to all the bus drivers who get it done for us and our kids day after day. As first I and then my kids learned from Sesame Street, "They're the people that you meet, when you're walking down the street, they're the people that you meet, each, day." They are important, and they are appreciated.

When I dropped my daughter by the high school this AM, I saw that the sky was on fire with the sunrise. I ran home to get my camera and then headed over to the Little Magothy. It was 7:15 AM before I got the picture, and I had missed the peak, but it was still pretty amazing. Almost more like a sunset than sunrise.
