On the Road

When Frank turned on the TV that night and saw the lead story on the late news, he knew that he would have to move on as it wouldn’t be long before the authorities caught up with him.
He had managed to stay ahead of the game for almost a year, but his last dalliance had cost hm dearly, not only in monetary terms, but his anonymity.  The stupid girl had decided to help herself from his wallet and found more than she bargained for.
He was not a violent man and had left her unconscious and tied up in the motel room as he made his escape. He’d had to dump the latest car and a push bike was not exactly the best of getaway vehicles, but it was sufficient to put distance between him and the motel before she’d been found.
Changing his appearance wasn’t easy as he was already clean shaven and had short hair, so a colour would have to do for now and the joke of wearing glasses he didn’t need.
Thinking on a tangent, he decided the bike could be beneficial and so became a water gypsy using the last of his cash to buy a small thirty footer. Setting off along the waterways, hopefully it was something his ex wife wouldn’t think of him doing as she continued to chase him for alimony.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Some people are better off not being in our lives. LOL

  2. I hope that Frank doesn’t end up becoming one of your neighbors.

    Somehow his antics point to the reason he has an ex-wife! At least he isn’t a murderer!!
