Dreams and Wishes -Friday Fictioneers


I watched “Easy Rider” with all the other girls from boarding school. I sat in the old movie theater in the South of Germany, and my mind was made up.

One day I would see America and I would travel west on Route 66, like so many before me.

Just ten years later, in 1985 I stood beside my husband and looked at the road ahead.

Old song lyrics came to my mind:

Travel my way, take the highway that is best.
Get your kicks on Route sixty-six.

Life has been kind to me. Dreams and wishes do come true!

(Word Count: 100)


It’s already November; time is flying by. This is my post for this week’s Friday Fictioneers. This time it’s not all fiction, but an actual story 0f my life.

  1. Dear Bridget,

    You are truly a woman after my own heart. My husband and I saw Easy Rider on our first date and I am an avid Nat King Cole fan. Don’t let our name fool you. It’s not all fiction here. 😉 Wonderfully written. A heart warmer.

  2. That was so sweet. So funny… I started singing “Born to be Wild” in my head as soon as you mentioned Easy Rider! And then the wonderful Nat comes along… (my fave)
