Next day, Fourth of July, I borrowed Madelyn’s little ‘Chariot’.
(My ‘Labomba’ was broken down as usual.)
Had taken a can of charcoal lighter fluid from the garage. I did not smoke (cigarettes) back then, so Madelyn had given me her Zippo.
I hit the road to Bonham. It was around two in the afternoon.
As I got about half-way there, I passed a Texas Highway Patrol heading in my opposite direction.
Always paranoid, I watched him in my rear-view mirror.
Sure as shit he turned around and pursued me, lights flashing.
“Dammit to Hell!” I thought to myself. “How does he know what I am up to?”
I pulled off the road and waited for him.
“Son, do you know why I pulled you over?” he enquired.
“No officer, I do not,” I said nervously. Pretty sure I looked guilty for something / everything.
“Your state inspection sticker has expired.”
“Oh. I will take care of that tomorrow Officer.”
“Make sure that you do.”
Then he wrote me a ticket.
I waited for him to pull away, and then I proceeded on with my ‘Mission.’
