100 Word Wednesday: Week 123 – The Old School Bus


The sight of our old school bus took me back to the days when Rusty Collins would pull up at the end of our driveway and wait patiently while mum dragged me down the drive and then push me aboard, telling me I’d be ok once I got going.

When Rusty retired, the bus was used by the Corrigan’s who travelled the length and breathe of the country.

I wondered if the ghosts of students past lingered on. The assignations, food fights and rushed attempts at homework before fronting up to Sister Mary with her cane always at the ready.
