"Oh Me , oh my . . . I think my clutch is starting to slip. My cotter pins are
starting to fall. Maybe my fuel line has a hernia."
Hey, wait a minute. Buses can't talk!
"Most buses can't, but there are a few like me. I've been hauling Pennings ath-
letes around for almost 10 years, and I've learned a few things over the years. Like
I know how some people kind of snicker at me. I guess I stand out in a crowd. But I
think the kids kinda like me. I'm sort of an institution around here.
"But I guess it's time for me to be retired, if you'll pardon the pun.
"It won't be so bad, really . . . I mean the way they're farming me out is kind
of an honor. They're buying a new bus from the Ric Oudenhoven Memorial Fund.
He was a great young fella . . . really a shame about his accidental death last
"Course that new bus will have lots of spit and polish crome, but I had my good
"Memories? Yeah, I've got lots of memories.
. . . "See that crinkle in my behind? Can't remember if it was some woman
driver or just Father Frigo slipping the clutch when he was backing up.
"See these 10 rows of seats? Yeah, I know there's one without a back, but you
can't be perfect. '
You know, I could always tell if we won or lost. If we won, the kids were happy
poking around at my light bulbs and stuff. If we lost it was quiet, just like on the
way to a game.
"Last year, when we clinched the conference basketball championship at Fon du
Lac, we had a couple of guests from your Press-Gazette place.
"The kids were happy on the way back . . . think they gave that Cliff Christl
fella a pink belly or something.
. . . "Sure , my back tires are a little bald and my doors don't close and I've
got a little rust, but that's not any worse than varicose veins, is it?
"I think the kids know their new bus will be here in a couple of weeks. They've
been a little rougher on me than normal.
"But what the heck. I'm getting retired any way.
"I'm not going to scrap, though. Maybe somebody will convert me into a camper
or something. That'd be nice, sitting out in a woods, listening to the birds and
"Hey, come here. I want to show you something before you leave. See that
speedometer. Says I can do a hundred, right? Who are they kidding.
"Well, it was nice you stopped. If you're in the area again, stop by. I'll be here
. . . a couple more weeks anyway . . . in my stall next to the school. That's my
sign over there. Says 'faculty only.'
"Naw, it's not sonbad getting retired. The worst part is that some other young
whippersnapper will be wearing my 8238 license plate.
"Bye now . . . beep, beep."
