Say Hello To Dave - Part Eight

Short of a quick gas stop on the south end of Macon, Georgia, he drove northward. He went straight through Atlanta on I-75, avoiding the much-touted bypass that merely added at least twenty miles to the trip. Only first timers took that route more than once. As he put more and more time between him... Sign in to see full entry.

Say Hello To Dave - Part Seven

He awoke to the rhythmic sound of the waves coming to shore and retreating again. He found it endlessly soothing and thought about renewing his room one more day but knew that that wasn't possible. He had to accept the fact that he would be back on the road in the morning. He didn't want to be out... Sign in to see full entry.

Say Hello To Dave - Part Six

As he drove over the Sunshine Skyway Bridge that took him across the ocean in Tampa Bay, his friends at the campsite were waking up. Kyle, the guy who had taken the money from him, staggered out into the heat of a Florida morning. He was extremely groggy, but even in that state, he had to grin about... Sign in to see full entry.

Say Hello To Dave - Part Five

He pulled off I-75 about forty miles north of Gainesville to get gas and saw a sign talking about O'leno State Park not far down the road. A walk to unwind sounded good to him after his long drive. Driving was relaxing to him, but after close to nine hours, he was tired. He followed the road signs... Sign in to see full entry.

Say Hello To Dave - Part Four

Music aside, the drive from the north end of Georgia into Florida was a minimum of eight hours and right down tedious by yourself. If you knew what lane to stay in as you drove through Atlanta and avoided the rush hours, the baseball crowd going in and going out, and if the airport traffic wasn't... Sign in to see full entry.

Say Hello To Dave - Part Three

He had sat in his Chevy at the far end of "Bobby's Cafe" for several hours, listening to the 'oldies station' and watching the in and out foot traffic. There was the usual trucker business that stopped at the gas station for fuel and then to kill some time waiting for another load assignment headed... Sign in to see full entry.

Say Hello To Dave - Part Two

He sat in a small café about 40 miles north of Atlanta, just off I-75. There was no big sign on the freeway telling passing travelers to ‘Stop In to Say Hi!’ to the folks at “Bobby’s Café.” There was a gas station that brought in tons of traffic for those wishing to avoid stopping in Atlanta and its...

Say Hello To Dave - Part One

He sat at the window of the diner gazing out the dirty window. The sign over the window read “Dusty’s Diner” and other than he was slightly better dressed than ol’ Dusty’s daily customers. Two days from now, no one would even remember him - by face anyway. To even the most intent observer, his gaze... Sign in to see full entry.

Dave Comes To Visit... Again

I'm working on cleaning up some of my older stories, especially those that were written as my heart issues began to get severe. One of my favorite 'true crime' stories was the story about a man I met while working in the prison psych ward that was one of the few guys I met there that made me... Sign in to see full entry.

Starting as soon as later this afternoon or at worst, tomorrow morning, I'm going to re-post a story that hasn't been on here in several years. With a new crop of readers, hopefully it will gather new eyes and give me a place to clean up the original story. I am going to shelve 'Dystopia' for a few... Sign in to see full entry.
