The Cranky Old Car

Sam and Marge headed out on a sunny day for a drive to PenMar Park, right on the Appalachian Trail. With the sun on their face and the wind in their hair everything was going great. The climb up the mountain was slow, but the old car made it.

As the day came to an end it came time to head home. It was a good day up to that time. No amount of cranking would get the car started. Fortunately one of the other car owners trailered his to the park, with space enough to put Sam’s car onboard for the ride home.

    At least they weren’t stranded by the temperamental old thing

  7. About then it would be time to “get out and get under”. Drivers could fix their own cars in those days but it was dark by then I suppose. Good writing, Mike. πŸ˜€ — Suzanne
