The year before I turned sixteen and could drive myself to school, this lady was the school bus driver on my route.
Julie. Adorable! 😀
She was a high-school senior. I was a sophomore. I thought she was hot, and no, my, ummm, sexual orientation has never changed. 😆
It now seems inconceivable that back then high-school seniors could drive the school buses. It was, in my opinion, a high status position. Those who drove the buses had to be accepted into the bus driver program and were closely monitored. I though it was cool program and don't recall a single problem with it. I never drove a school bus, but Julie did!
Image #1: I don't ever remember her hair being like that. I always remember it long and flowing. I lifted this photo from someone else.
Image #2: I tried to take this picture of her in the driver's seat as I boarded the bus. She freaked out and turned away. That's the flowing hair I remember. Technical detail: the driver's seat has NO safety belt. Those were the old days! There was no A/C either…so HOT in May.
