I named my dog MERLIN. He is named after a magician cause he can make "$#!% appear outta thin air.

Oooops!  Of topic, right?

Ours was named by the PO & it has been appropriate so far:

"Ton$ O' Fund$"

I haven't yet formally named our bus, but one of my wife's friends asked what brand it was, to which I responded GMC.   She said that was funny because every time my wife talked about it, it was the STUPID BUS!! Cry

Like junkman42 said Debi and I named the bus Dreamcatcher. We pick up the bus in San Diego CA  and on are travels back to North Carolina we made a few stops looking for a dreamcatcher, and never did find one, also we where trying to think of a name for the bus. So once we got home realize we didn't find a dreamcatcher but we found a name for the bus.

Nothing to do with Earnhardt, it's a sarcastic comment on the size.

Ours was always name End of the Trail with a mural of Michael Meketi painting of the End of the Trail.
I gave up the name because to some Native Americans they found it be offensive why I don't know. 
I liked the mural better than the graphics I have now
Now it is Luv-R-Bus on the plates 



good luck

Orange Blossom Special was used for several reasons.  Being from Florida, the state flower is the orange blossom.  Our place is surrounded by orange groves (sweetest smelling place on earth when the trees are in bloom). When we were clogging, Orange Blossom Special was one of our favorite songs to dance to. We had the good fortune to meet and be come friends with Chubby Wise, who wrote Orange Blossom Special. and lastly, I like the old steam locomotives.  Jack

So Jack, do you know about the silverware pattern from Wm. Rogers & Son from the 1910-20 era, called Orange Blossom?  I had 1 or 2 pieces that i got from my mom and liked it so well that i started looking in antique shops for pieces, and finally got most of my set ( still not complete) off of ebay.  They have a patent date on the back and you have to be careful because there is another pattern called Arbutus that is almost identical.  The most common and sometimes misidentified piece is a citrus spoon that was a promotional piece for Sunkist Oranges.  Back then you could buy oranges individually wrapped in tissue paper that came with a coupon.  Send in 12 coupons with 12 cents and you got a spoon.
