It started around 7am. I was on my route doing what I do. The sky was clear and the sun was out. About 30 minutes later it was dark, windy and ominous. Then the rain. As I drove I passed more down trees (this has been a bad year for trees in Media). The rain grew harder and harder. About a half an hour later the rain let up then by 9am it stopped. The rest of the day was very nice. I finished my route just as the excess moister in the air started to make it uncomfortable outside. So, the day ended very nice and calm.
The next chapter in my story will be posted soon (I want to prof read it). It will be more PG-13 then the PG fair of the first three chapters. I make a point to use little profanity because I don’t use very much in my life. I am also staying away from certain words that while authentic for the time are not acceptable today (I don’t want the hate mail). I mention this because an African American man who was a former slave (remember this is all fiction) will play a bigger part in chapter 4. I will use words such as colored or former slave rather than that other word that I won’t type here. I might use the word boy especially with southerners. Thank you for your time consideration and for not sending me hate mail.
