‘Impressive’.
‘What’?
‘Those cars in the open field. Half in and their psychedelic colours. Genius!’.
‘Putting cars in the middle of nowhere is not genius. Called Dumb!’
‘I am sure there must be a story behind this’.
‘How about this? 50 years ago, there was a car circus. People used to try stunts by flying cars over cars.’
‘Aaaaaaawesummmm… And..’
‘One day. A car mistimed it’s speed…..’
‘Coooool…..’
‘Landed face first. Smackered. Broken Ribs, legs. A wonder driver survived.’
‘Woooooowwwwww. Who was he?’
Silence.
Looking at my Granddad sitting in a wheelchair staring blankly, I sensed cold sweat trickling down.


Had another thought to the picture and posted on the following link: Cadillac Gang. Unfortunately both on low side this week, will find a positive note the next. And the story is bigger. Thoughts welcome on both.

About asarpota

Like to fly, but at the same time, quite on the ground, and do tend to be realistic. Very passionate about what I believe in and do, no patience with idiots, not a perfectionist, but trying to come close to it.... Not a nerd btw, value my friends very much, can criticize and have the b***s to take it on my chin. A spade is a spade!!!
