We got a new Bustop

DewBug Daycare also provides shuttle service & picks up a kid close to Nipomo so we ride the bus and meet the Daycare Van where it hops on the freeway. The new stop is at a place called Windmill Farms - the best bustop a mom and her country boy could ever wish for! They have livestock for sale so we get to consort with roosters, geese, a goat, her 2 kids, and a couple of miniature burros. Plus i dig all the old wagonry. This sign reminds me what every day is full of....heh heh

Our Love Affair with public transport continues. Including our share of bumps in the road and grumpy drivers. The best thing about the bus is that we can Sit Wherever we want. Take my lap, for instance. It's a dangerously Freeee feeling we get. Even with the 75 cent fee hike that the Bitchy bus driver demanded from me on the Usually Freee (oh how i luv that sentiment) transfer with it's little yellow transfer ticket. She asked me for Seventy five cents ...all firm and no nonsense. I had Pop-pops by one hand the stroller in my other and my wallet is in my backpack so i asked if i could bring it back up to her after she rudely pointed to the sign that boldly announced the rate increase....news to me so i told her i didn't know nothin about no fee hike. Huh, she barely let me sit down & there i go scrounging in my whole backpack finding only fifty cents and i had dollar bills....so i look up at her face in the big long busdriver mirror, my arm deep in my pack and she's watching me like a hawk. We were at a red light and i was just getting ready to give her a dollar when she crabbily tells me, "Ma'am? I'm still waiting." I wish i would have thought right then (instead of 10 min. later) to say, "Ummm you're gonna have to stay waiting because i'm still lookin for a fricken quarter, Bitch. " i'm just a tad hypersensitive like that.
So now it's 2 bux instead of just a dollar twenty five. Still a glorious bargain considering the crazy ass gas prices....And it is such a nice drive.

This is our View. from each side of the 101 freeway right by Shell and Pismo Beach. I really do love the bus. Even though i feel kinda like a homeless transient waiting at the Park & Ride (for the trip back to Nipomo). It's on a frontage road right off a highway entrance. After dusk, it's a Dangerous location for a squirmy little kid so Pop-pops is on strict lockdown in the strollie. I personally think it's a stupid and creepy place for a major bustop. But that's just my 75 cents worth. We manage to get home safe and sound.

I have an amazing travel-experience on trains, but I hate the bus. Picture an overcrowded bus that has to take a sharp turn every 100meters. That's how I took the bus for four years when I went to art-school (did I mention the big map(1,5mx1m) I had to shuv-up somebody's arse before I could even enter the goddamn vehicle?). I always wanted to vommit on the person before me. It would have made my trip perfect.
