First Sentence Friday! CHAPTER SIXTEEN

It has been a bit bizarre to me, the circumstances for the weather this fall and the timing of my latest book, with its share of weather related suffering.  Evacuate is more or less what the Stampers had to do.  Then what?  Last week they were floating like dandelion pods, and since I don’t tend to let my characters off the hook so easy, dandelion pods they continue to be.  With nowhere in particular to go, the sentence this week also brings to mind The Allman Brothers song Ramblin’ Man, and particularly these lyrics, “Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man, tryin’ to make a livin’ and doin’ the best I can…”

That’s them, to a “t,” they’re ramblin’ along, hoping to land somewhere that will give them the break they so desperately need.

Chapter Sixteen

Papa insisted on going a bit further south each day, driving through little smatterings of towns here and there.
