So some dogs need to be taught how to drive cars - but presumably greyhounds already know how to drive buses?

A shameless plug for my business - visit www.magazineexchange.co.uk for back issue magazines - thousands of titles covering cars, motorbikes, aircraft, railways, boats, modelling etc. You'll find lots of interest, although not much covering American buses sadly.

Further to the original post, here's more of the canine chauffeurs:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-20614593
I'm not quite convinced they're actually driving per se (in one scene there's a helping human hand), but they're probably no worse than half the idiots on the road here.   At least they're not texting, putting on make-up, staring at the nav system and eating breakfast, like some drivers do on the freeways here, even sometimes attempting to do all of that at one time while "driving".

In BCO's bum shot it looks like a Lada taxi, so maybe it's somewhere Slavic or one of the Stans.   There's even a Volkswagen bus in the picture, which I guess makes it bus-related.   Nothing like keeping the posts here on topic . . .

There's a shot of my bum ...Where? 

In all fairness, "it did have a dog behind the wheel, so I kind of thought it t'were related."  Also considered it was just going with the flow y'know.  And yes, you are right, none of this, has anything to do about buses.  But that is all part of the fun, watching it morph into something completely abstract and different from the norm. 

(It does however help me to get my mind off this ugly rash in my right armpit that has me upset and worried, or helps me to deal with my Uncle Frank who recently stepped on a garden rake, and it came up and smacked him between the eyes, and he is now wearing women's clothing.  So I guess it all has a purpose.)

Often that is the way it goes on Thursday ...

Hello Ed, the picture is still there (Fishing In Florida Creative Endeavors Dec 1st) I just pulled the link here on this end.  It can run on my site as I see no harm in it at all.  (Really like the look on the kids face in the background, that cracks me up)  Not long ago I had a post pulled here because it was deemed unsuitable for the site (determined to be not of a family nature) and I got to thinking about this ... And as I don't want to be stirring up any crap, I pulled the link.

I can assure you "if my uncle Frank looked like that" there would be MORE family reunions ..... Yes sir!

Does your Uncle Frank say stuff like "C'mon kid, pull my finger?"

(we could be related, depends on the answer)

I am doing just fine.  Went to the lawyers today, and ALL OF YOU are now listed as dependents.  With the exception of the five who are currently ignoring me, they have been moved to the "When it all freezes over file," and then with restrictions (to be named at a later date).

Will you be able to make it to Grandma's for Christmas? .... And please remember Bro, friends do not give friends fruitcake for the holiday's.
