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!

  6. I guess one's ashes could end up in a worse place. I've always been attracted to the name "Tucumcari", but never been lured off the freeway to actually go there. That must be a rather odd place to live, but I guess some people like it just fine.

  7. Wow! How do you do that with only 100 words. It takes exceptional talent to tell such a complete and kind of creepy story with such brevity. Loved it. I never want to be cremated. No telling where my ashes would get buried or tossed. Great job on the piece.
