On the Road Again 19#

by

Laughter slowly gathered pace and the Marc began flowing again.
The next day, head still humming, we stocked up with exploding pellets in the local joke shop and headed in the direction of Mulhouse on the Rhine.
Any thought of Angus had by now been literally blown away.
The weather was foul in Haut-Rhin and with Allegra’s mini-skirt safely packed in her rucksack no one seemed to pay any attention to us by the roadside. The only option was to cheat again and take the night train in search of sun to Milan. At least it was dry.

    Love the series, Steve.

    (And the song. That used to be the number one song for strippers to do their act to. Although James Brown did it a little fast for that. Look up the original 1952 version by Jimmy Forrest to get an idea of how strippers used the song.)

    For a man of relatively few years, you are a mine of information, Christopher! Checking out Jimmy Forrest!

    I have a lot of useless musical knowledge bouncing around in my skull!

    I’ve obviously hit on something inadvertently here. Off to Google now....
