Gentleman Jack
« on: March 09, 2008, 05:21:19 PM »
I met Jack today in Arcadia.  He let us use his shop to change the oil in our 88 MCI 96A3. :)  He is a great man, who was very nice to us.  He and his friends have a lot of knowledge and gave us a bunch of advice on our bus.  I am very thankful for all the information he gave me today. ???  We used to have an old skoolie, and have upgraded to an MCI that we use with our youth wrestling club.  It sure is nice to know that there are good guys out there!  Jack if you read this, thanks a lot!

Youth wrestling club purchased an old bus, so now the old Coach is just trying to keep the old coach running.

Yeah, we're all kind of fond of Jack and Paula and all their friends, too.

Hi Stan,

Ya know, that Jack is a swell guy...  Little did you know but, you were in the presants of the "Imperial Potintate" of the bus world...

He is "THE GUY"  The "BUS MASTER"   Oh, and he really got there from the help of his bride Paula!

Jack, sorry for putting you on a perch..

You couldn't have been in better company than with Jack & Paula.

And whoever those mystery Friends where....They were probably alright too!  LOL  ;D

Busnut's in general are a good lot, and have shown over and over, that they will come out to help someone in need.
