Flip at 125mph


Marshall & I were still restless.

Hadn’t recovered from the trauma of the day before.

We left the Motel at 3.12am.

Marshall took the wheel & tuned into a Grateful Dead 24 Hr Radio Station. His Favourite.

Lucy stretched out on the back seat.

It was getting light.

About an hour later, Marshall said:

I wonder if I could Flip the car at 125mph and land it again??

I was watching thousands of dandelions in the summer sky through my window and replied:

The only scientific method of deciding I know, is to Flip a coin!

Game On, he said.

So I flipped a coin…..

And before the coin landed, Lucy who hardly ever speaks, whispered:

Oh Lord, Have Mercy……
