PART OF THE SCENERY
It had always been his dream. Traveling Route 66 was just one of my husband’s chosen road trips.
He’d purchased the perfect motor home; it held everything needed for ease during cross-country excursions. Economical, and yet with every creature comfort!
His retirement choice wasn’t mine.
I wanted the beach, an endless view, not mindless rutted roads with repeated views of meadows and trees. Or living with strangers and repeated smoke filled nights around campfires listening to the same dull stories and swatting mosquitoes.
Murder will out!
Now I reside here, my ashes trampled under the feet of other Route 66 tourists!

      Thanks, Rochelle, this was too easy. I’m sitting at the beach right now and my husband has always talked of making such road trips. Unlike the woman in the story, I look forward to joining him. But I had to give the story a twist for fun! 🙂
