In the early days of the Internet and "Instant Messages" I was doing a presentation for our local Computer Club, when an IM buddy appeared on the screen and said she was feeling lonely.
I was hitchhiking from Fort Belvoir, VA to Camp Stoneman, CA (on my way to the Korean War) when the driver of a late-model yellow Hudson stopped to offer me a ride.
A red "Jeepster" was being towed behind the Hudson. The cars were part of a convoy of repossesd vehicles being returned to Los Angeles. The driver of the Hudson turned out to be a pistol-packing lunatic who planned to break away from the convoy and take a "shortcut" to LA.
