On the Road Again #3


I can still picture my girl then, fresh and youthful, innocent but naughty, mini-skirted with beautiful sea blue eyes, an uneasy contrast to my dark bearded, frizzy headed, some would think intimidating frame.
I was very conscious that a cardinal rule for a successful hitchhiker is not to look like a serial killer. My girl was the perfect antidote to allay such fears.
And so within minutes of taking up our station on the kerb of the old Roman road facing south we squeezed into a cab, my bird perched on the engine cover next to the burly driver.
