Yellow Bus has lots of things to entertain children of all ages, any day of the week...
"I cannot go to school today"
Said little Peggy Ann McKay.
"I have the measles and the mumps,
A gash, a rash and purple bumps.

My mouth is wet, my throat is dry.
I'm going blind in my right eye.
My tonsils are as big as rocks,
I've counted sixteen chicken pox.

And there's one more - that's seventeen,
And don't you think my face looks green?
My leg is cut, my eyes are blue,
It might be the instamatic flu.

I cough and sneeze and gasp and choke,
I'm sure that my left leg is broke.
My hip hurts when I move my chin,
My belly button's caving in.

My back is wrenched, my ankle's sprained,
My 'pendix pains each time it rains.
My toes are cold, my toes are numb,
I have a sliver in my thumb.

My neck is stiff, my voice is weak,
I hardly whisper when I speak.
My tongue is filling up my mouth,
I think my hair is falling out.

My elbow's bent, my spine ain't straight,
My temperature is one-o-eight.
My brain is shrunk, I cannot hear,
There's a hole inside my ear.

I have a hangnail, and my heart is ...
What? What's that? What's that you say?
You say today is .............. Saturday?

G'bye, I'm going out to play!"


  1. OMG I WANT TO GO THERE! And those are ADG's and my favorite kind of gel pens.

    1. I knew you'd love it! Ooooh - now I must have some, too! I tried to go this afternoon, but I was too late.

  2. Fantastic, Adele. (I just had to pop here to tell you that when I was commenting yesterday I did smile when I typed your name on your post. I had just finished my post and 'Adele' was fresh in my mind. I laughed when I read your comment just now. All good fun!)

    1. Absolutely, LOL. I laught at the whole Adele/Adele thing all the time. I'm not famous, but I was first! :)

  3. Wonderful post. Looks like a fun place too.

    1. Thanks, Randy. It's definitely a fun place!

  4. I remember that poem. It's been a while but it sure holds up.

    1. It's a goodie! I thought of you today. I tried to go to B.La but got there after they closed. I am now on a mission and will try again at a reasonable time.

  5. Perfect pairing! Bright colors and Shel Silverstein.

    1. Thanks! Two things I like very much.

  6. Oh, how I wish I could just step into this photo! I love the way you captured the bright, fun colours. Good on Saturday and anyday:)

    1. Isn't it fun? Definitely good, any day of the week!

  7. Good afternoon, Adele. I heard you stopped by two days ago. I will be here everyday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. from now on. I would love to see you and have a cup of coffee. =)

    1. Hi, Yumi! I will do that - Thanks so much!
