"Trailways and Crossroads" moves along nicely and becomes exceptionally well done in the conversations. The dialog seemed so natural to both the situation and feeling of the speakers. Great progress on this one.

Tom, your chapter absolutely moved me, maybe even to tears if I want to be honest.

Mary seemed to be such a vulnerable young lady and such an amazing mother. The in laws are pretty incredible, too!

I'm glad you took that flight, my friend, and equally glad you've share your story.

Take care,
Rhonda

Hooray for Mary's sister!! You had me worried that you were going to back out again and cause more grief to everyone. Hope God's guidance will lead to the right path.

I really liked "Life moved like a tapestry of scenes from a movie about the Heartland"

Well, I'm glad you finally got up the courage to go see Mary. I guess it took her sister to convince you but you weren't sorry. She is very pretty. Her family sure cared about you. I'm enjoying the story.

It always amazes me how big the US seems. Transport is so important in your tale and obviously so important to the nation. This provincial Brit wants to ride that bus!

What a beautiful girl, and if she was as half as beautiful inside, you were a fool to let get away, I feel angry with you for letting her down, but I'm sure you'll more than make up for lost time, this is a fantastic post Stan, well done, blessings Roy

You were speaking about Trailways. I drove for Greyhound in 63-64 out of Houston. Knew drivers who drove for Trailways. Good story Stan. Is that Mary in the picture?

I haven't read any of the other chapters so it would help if you put a cat of characters in your author's notes. I only found one error: Your there should be you're there. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, you did do a foolish thing backing out and then almost backing out again. They are both beautiful. But, sometimes you just need a kick in the pants. You did a great job letting the reader into your mind, and you painted a good picture of the past.
