Simple - A to Z Blog Hop

My theme is 10x10.
A maximum of ten sentences, a minimum of 100 words.


The weary truck hiccuped to life and Dan heaved a sigh of relief. “There's still some life in ya, isn't there Gertie,” he thought as he shifted into first and turned towards the rutted dirt road heading into town.

  10. Yay, you used my prompt! Such a sad ending though. I especially liked the part about the dad sitting him on his lap. My dad did the same thing when we traveled country roads, and it was such a special memory. Although now I guess a parent doing this would be dragged into court for child endangerment.
