I’m sorry if I am not my usual ebullient self today, but yesterday I had some news of a very sad nature……
Darrell and I had thought that we hadn’t seen George, our Banga bus driver of choice for a while and so yesterday morning, when I went into town I plucked up courage to ask where he had gone …. and was told he had left! My stomach dropped like a lead balloon and my heart felt as if it had been torn from my chest ……I couldn’t believe it. He just went, he never told anyone, we never had a chance to say goodbye ………………….
I know in time we will get used to the new driver and the way he slams on his brakes as he nears a stop, but it’ll never be the same. When I told Darrell he went very quiet and then disappeared to his room for a while. Sadness weighs very heavy in our hearts today.
….. I hope it wasn’t the new ticket machine that made George decide to leave ….. I don’t suppose we’ll ever know. I’ll leave you now, while I try to gather my composure. Sometimes fate deals us a sad hand.
