bus ride ice cream exams

   The relief of finishing exams.

   What a joy! Our bus ride back home from St.James High was a lot of fun. By the time we got to the tracks we were only 12 to 15 students left on the bus, so we'd start a little chant to Mark Steib, the driver "Ice cream, Ice cream" and he'd gradually slow down and stop. We would rush out to The Royal Cafe and get ice cream cones, which made the rest of the ride lots of fun again.

   That time in my life comes as a very sweet, nostalgic memory.
