Day Twenty of 41 Days of Metallicar ...  
Another day, another 100 words. Here's my contribution to day 20 of the 41 Days of Metallicar celebration!



****************************
 
Hunter, Hunted
 
“They’re just two guys, Victor. That car sticks out like a sore thumb. How hard could it be to find them?” Henriksen parodied his boss, fuming.
 
“Sure, the car sticks out – when you see it. But there’s no pattern to search; these jokers criss-cross the whole lower 48! Chance of a nationwide APB turning up one car’s on a par with me winning the lottery without buying a ticket. And the way they mostly stick to Podunkville and back roads means we’re relying on Mayberry PD for a tip.”
 
Reidy grinned.
 
“Maybe, but Sheriff Taylor’s always right.”
 
The phone rang.

****************************

(This one may require a little contextual explanation for folk not from the States, or for relative younglings from anywhere.  From 1960 through 1970 or so, actor Andy Griffith played Sheriff Andy Taylor of the fictional small town of Mayberry, first on The Andy Griffith Show and then on its successor series, Mayberry R.F.D.  In wholesome Mayberry, of course, everything always worked out for the best ...) 

And yes, the call was from Bela, but it's the timing that mattered! *grin*
 
 
 
Current Mood: busy
Current Music: Humming the Mayberry theme music ...

Too bad Kripke killed Victor off. *sniff*

Also? Is it just me or does anyone else suspect that Floyd the barber wasn't human?

Don't look now, but the Kleenex may be making a comeback ... *grin*

MY GODS! I love the top have of your Metallicar icon on this one, Mary. Seriously. That's a sexy shot.

Aw, Victor... I miss him already! *sniffles*
