NUMBER 4 SHORT STORY

BETWEEN THERE AND THERE
Published for Dverse--Tuesdays at 3--or after!

Why (when putting along about 80 mph somewhere on I-95 between there and there, does my Suzuki engine decide it's 'siesta' time?

Is it in real fact
a silver-painted 
Briggs and Stratt?--

WHY does it stop running?

NOW!

Flex, my scooter, quit...

right behind and in front of
two behemoths. WHY?

I'LL TELL YOU WHY!

Flex ran out of gas


I knew Flex could 'do' zero-to-sixty in four seconds (true!)

NOW I know he can do 'eighty-to-zero' in TWO seconds
(also true!)
So also can behemoths. THANK GOD! AND THAT'S THE TRUTH

NOTE: It was a lonnngg walk in 'noonday sun'
over hill-and-dale (Mommie, what's a 'dale'???)
from I-95 to the nearest farmhouse--grin!
(NOT a "Farmer's Daughter" tale.) LOL!
 
These days I'm riding the 'Blue Highways'...
away from the super-roads.
Bike is extra-strained,
since I must have gained
10 lbs in these 10 days!!!--grin!
But LIFE IS GOOD! GOD IS GOOD!

LOVE and PEACE, Peeps!

Steve E (aka steveroni)

Psssst! A SECRET!
For you Peeps ONLY:

 
I just now rode into Brian's home town.
(He lives either "there" or "there"!)
He does not know I'm here.

Wanted to get this posted on Dverse Pub.
"First Things First"
favorite slogan-a-roni
NOW I'll call Brian...
pretend (huff-puff)
that I just drove up this instant!
--grin!

  1. I'm sure the bike can withstand the strain and between there and there Brian will become aware.

  10. I noticed the importance of the fact that Flex ran out of gas by the size of font you chose to use. :) I asked Brian to give you a hug. Did he? I guess he has too many comments to remember that one little request. I think it's neat that you're out living life and meeting peeps. Be safe and watch that gas gauge!

  12. No, not a Briggs and Stratton for sure.... That would never quit on you, just take a little longer to get there! I hope that 2 second stop was a safe one...... Kudos!

  13. Ride on, Brother. Brian posted you're coming over. Would LOVE to be a waitress at that buffet of ideas! Keep on your scooter! Had one in Bermuda and it was heaven. Closer to the ground, nearer to God.

    Peace, Amy
