#1 Son had a little bit of an issue getting on the bus this morning. Seems there was a substitue driver and apparently, the driver did not see #1 and shut the door on his hand. #1 was saying, no, hollering, “Excuse me!” and had to run alongside the bus until it opened. He was slightly miffed (understandably) and the Sub had the balls to say “You don’t have to be so mean about it.”

It was only his hand. That would cause me to be slightly irritated as well. I’m just glad my boy didn’t lose his limb trying to get on the friggin school bus.

Ok, who remembers the little guy that used to do the Bus Report on the Ralph Emery Show? Gil Gilliam? (I know Busy Mom and CeeElCee will) He was a teenager and I believe he had some sort of Muscular Dystrophy. He was something of a local celebrity and even appeared in W. W. and the Dixie Dance Kings, a movie Hazel makes a small appearance in and a movie I saw a scene filmed when I was about 4.

Lordy, the women were screaming (my mother included) over Burt Reynolds. I have pictures somewhere of this event. Why has this movie never showed up on DVD?

One of the more random posts I’ve ever written. From my kid nearly losing a hand to the Bus Report to Burt Reynolds.
