Fortunately Captain Wisoff-Fields sent out a runner to check the way ahead. She spotted a band of redcoats travelling our way. There was no alternative, we would have to travel light and take the high road. Quietly drawing us together she gave us the order, hide all non essential items. Within minutes our steeds where set loose. Heaven only knew where they would end up. Meanwhile we took to a narrow mountain trail. Sure of foot and lightly loaded, we would outpace anyone attempting to follow us. It would be good to breath the mountain air again.
Footnotes… No post last week as I was helping put on show… Now I am ‘almost’ tied to the house. So the phone will get lots of use, as I check up on friends and family. More than ever I am glad to be able to write. To all who read this attempt at flash fiction, look after yourself.
