In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Trio no. 4.”


After twenty-nine years in the US military, a thirty-two year marriage to my sweet heart sitting next to me as we speed along interstate 90 through the great state of South Dakota, in our new 1997 Chevrolet Corvette, in mid July with the center top off. My wife turns up the volume on the 1960’s Rolling Stones hit. ” Start Me Up” and we are speeding along when she pulls out the her new cellular phone and attempts to call our kids back in Virgina as the first maiden call.

What we discovered is that at 90 miles an hour, you cannot hear the person on the other end, and as we past the last cellar site near Rapid City South Dakota, no cellular service, just the Stones for the next three hours, at just under 100 miles per-hours.

  1. I love that thirty-two years in you still refer to your wife as your sweetheart! 🙂 This sounds like an excellent day indeed! Best, Karen
