I reckon it’s hard to understand
why I skipped that soak in Simi
the other day. If I had been a better driver, it would have been a breeze. I had taken the van to Costco
for gas. Back in the saddle I found myself sandwiched between another old traveller who had slipped in front of me and beside a helpful young woman in a rather shiny
Audi A5. I zigged and zagged back and forth a few times before realizing I wasn’t going to make it.
So I stopped and sat there.
