    For the uninitiated it has become traditional for us to apply a small butterfly sticker to the read window of attending buses.
    Our bus is painted with butterflies and is called Schmetterling which is German for Butterfly so if you see someone lurking at the rear of your van, you may be getting Schmetted!
    SORRY, I have to do it!

    Oh the 'kombi rocking' memories! I am sure I still have a few kombi's in mind for payback lol Especially after waking from a deep sleep on a bus stop thinking I was in an earthquake with my belongings falling on top of me! Bring it on!

    I have been Schmetted in the past.
    And this busstop it will be even more fitting as I will be taking the kids to the Butterfly Santuary during the week at Coffs.

    I wonder who that was? I remember one incident of rocking a kombi not knowing it was jacked up on the other side to level it 'they' found out when it fell off the jack.:eek:

    I know kombis are deemed to be slow moving Grant but even one of Al's schmett wouldn't be able to get from the back to the front of the same bus…..;)
    Cheers,
