    Merry Christmas. Your bus looks a little like some of the houses around our village….except for the wheels.

    A warm Christmas Greeting from sunny Florida,
    That is one Crazie Card. I love it. When I showed my wife she cracked up when she saw the cow head and especially when I told of the chattering teeth and windshield wiper in the jaw smacking incident. Stay safe, stay warm.

    I love it! This reminds me of my first ever cross-country trip I did, when I lived in New York, in a VW bus. The bus was named was Howie and belonged to my friend Chuck, hence his official name, “Chuckie’s Howie.” He also had a skull of some sort on his dash, though it was much smaller. I think it was a squirrel skull, or maybe a cat. We had some mad adventures in Chuckie’s Howie, including a close brush with the law near Amarillo, Texas, and a 3-day breakdown in Albuquerque. Against all odds, Howie prevailed, and took us to the Grand Canyon and safely back. Man, those were some fun times.

    Have a very Merry, guys, and may the spirit of Chuckie’s Howie guide you.

    Love,
    Dan

    Sweet looking bus!
    I miss Howie (who got his name from a long lie I told a girl about how the skull on the dash had once been my cat, Howie); he was a ’69 with a leaky sunroof.
    My favorite, though, was my ’79 Westy.
    Bigger engine. Hydraulic lifters. YAY! No valve adjustments!!
    Maybe Dan will tell you about the infamous “day we almost spent 25 years in Texas.”
    Peace,
