today’s word is “gage”…

Betty had been driving the big old Caddy for, what?, 10 hours?  10 hours on the dusty roads of west Texas. Now it was dark and the big old car was burning fumes. It sputtered and died, she laid her head on the steering wheel and cried herself to sleep.

The sunlight woke her. She blinked and laughed. She was free now. She read the sign again.

“Welcome to Gage, Oklahoma”
