This is a real story of my experience on a bus. It's almost truthful. I must admit I played with the ending.


 

 
Got on a bus in Saint Paul
Had not rode in many years
Sat with a very young man
And lent him my friendly ears.
 
“Where you headed?” I asked him
With a puzzled look he said
“Fine, thank you!” and I wondered
Where this conversation had led.
 
The bus stopped very often
It seemed like in every town
I looked to see how he was
And he never wore a frown.
 
He got on from one of the stops
And it was getting very cold
He wanted to say something
But he didn’t look very bold
 
He said, “It’s getting cold outside”
And I didn’t know what to do
He speaks English I noticed
And I said, “Fine thank you.”

TO BE ABLE TO SHARE A REMEMBRANCE OF A PLEASANT EXPERIENCE IS A BLESSING...FOR YOU AND FOR THOSE YOU SHARE WITH. IT IS ESPECIALLY NICE WHEN YOU CAN RECALL A NOTABLE ENCOUNTER WHILE TRAVELING. THANKS FOR SHARING AND GOD BLESS. LOVE, JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

Larry, I have learned that you can meet the most interesting people while travelling, and at the end of the day they all make great stories.

Cheers,

In China, all we got from our interpreter was "yes!!! can" when asked if it was OK to take pictures, to stop to take a leak, why there were so many antiaircraft batteries around...
