Johnny Barnes is a Bermuda native found waving and saying “I love you, God loves you,” to passing commuters during the morning rush hour at the Foot of the Lane roundabout in Hamilton, Bermuda, from roughly 3:45 am to 10 am, every workday, rain or shine. Barnes, now an elderly pensioner, was an electrician by trade and worked on the Bermuda Railroad as an electrician until the railroad closed in 1948. He then became a bus driver. Barnes was fond of waving to people while driving the bus, and would occasionally sit and wave to people on his breaks or when coming to work. One day in approximately 1986, Barnes stopped at the Crow Lane roundabout took up waving to traffic. He has been there almost every day since.
