We didn't have that whatever we had any of that. It was aruna right there. We had that love station. Whatever they had we'd go up there and by our baloney that's about all they had. They had a couple of bad processed. Meats maybe some bad hand when you see that that water burger on your right on your left is a place called tad's thatt's statute that just one of these big truck stops that corner right. There was our elementary school. football field. Was everything so there through fifth grade. But i want you to go back second grade. I want you to think about the school where you are.

What elementary school were you in. Ramone co felt elementary was that how long was the bust. You got on what you guess you walk to school next door. You live next door to school. Always wanted to live next to school so but if you were to hop on a bus would you guess your bus would be about eighteen feet long or about forty feet long standard like like would you guess you could put forty kids on their eight. Four yuan a forty okay. you sure. i don't know if you remember. But at least in in orangeville they numbered two buses by the year of the bus and so by eighty two. You didn't want to get on bus six sixty because that many was from nineteen sixty six and there was no air conditioned on that. And i don't know how many of you remember this but you the the windows on those things where the bad windows. Whoever made those windows made a concession stand windows. Those windows were intended to give you a quick in your neck. Those win is windows. Were not intended to open and close.
