Friday Fictioneers is a weekly blog link-up led by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields at Addicted to Purple. The Challenge – write a one hundred word (plus or minus) story with a beginning, middle, and end inspired by the picture*. The Key – make every word count.
The picture is worth a thousand words. Below are my one hundred.

Ride of a Lifetime
Story has it Great Grandpa Jefferson took the bus home from work every day, so on his last day with Metro driving a gas-powered bus he took The Bus home. Jefferson stashed it in a storage garage and there it stayed until Dad donated it to the Tourism Council. The TC obtained an exemption from the EPA to operate it and buy the gas from military reserves. The EPA determined it unharmful to drive the bus for 27 minutes a year at 17MPH. The TC runs three nine-minutes rides and earns more per ride than Jefferson earned in annual salary.
