Welcome to the New Year!

Before Christmas I turned in my letter of retirement to the Superintendent and principal.

It will go in affect on June 3, the day after our last day. Having a desire to live a little longer is one of the reasons why I am retiring at this time. It will be a new chapter in our lives and we are looking forward to it.

Of course that will give me more time to write, so maybe I will get some of these novels I have started finished and published.

Here is a little more of a new one I am working on, way too slowly.

A half hour later, Mike turned off onto a gravel road. They drove for about five miles and then pulled off to the side.

    "Time to get out and stretch," Hawks said as he climbed out of the car.

    "Why are we stopping here?" Jenny asked. "We just got going again."

    "Well, we have some business to conduct," Hawks said. "I want to know who you're working for?"

    "I don't know what you mean," she said, her eyes opening wide.

    "Yes, you do," Hawks said, taking a step closer to her. "Mike heard you tell someone that you planted a homing device on our car. Now either talk or we leave you here."

    "He must be mistaken," she said bitterly. "I'm not working for anyone."

    "Take off your shoes, socks, and coat," Hawks said as he pulled his gun.

    "You're crazy!" she said and backed up.

    "Do it or we will," Hawks said.

    As she pulled off the items, Hawks said, "Jim, search her bag."

    "There's nothing in the bag except clothes," Jim said.

    "Put these in there," Hawks said as he tossed him her shoes, socks, and coat.

"You're on your own now lady. By the way, your device is on another vehicle," Hawks said as he climbed back into the car.

    "You can't leave me here like this," she said frantically. "I'll freeze."

    "It’s not that cold," Hawks said as Mike pulled away.
