Dukes of Hazard
Facing Her Ghost
"Anyone ever tell you musicians aren't supposed to be able to drive, or
make jumps, like that?" Linda was holding her chest - pretty much to make
sure her heart was in place.
"So, I've been told." Christy looked out her side mirror and laughed
when she saw the sheriff -along with the county commissioner - shaking
"Guess that's one ticket I won't have to pay."
"Just get me back to the band," Christy's friend shot her a glare,
"preferably in once piece." Continuing to give the driver a you're-nuts
look, Linda asked, "Who taught you to make a jump like that anyway?"
"A ghost that still haunts me." Christy wasn't about to tell her friend who
had taught her. That was none of her business.
Linda chose to refrain from any remark and reminded her where she
wanted to be when the band's lead guitarist, and back up singer, looked as if
she might want to turn around and have some more 'fun' with those two
men - still shaking their fists.
The rude jolt of the bus woke Christy up. "Mind watching the potholes!"
she hollered at the new bus driver. "I'm not unbreakable you know!"
'Doc' chose to ignore her and kept on driving, but the rest of the band
members murmuring showed their sentiments were with Christy.
A siren going off did not surprise the lead singer. Ten to one it's Roscoe
Christy moaned to herself -sure enough it was.
Praise be, the driver had enough brains not to tell him who was in the
back. And, not shockingly, the corrupt law man gave her group a choice of
a ticket, or have the band perform in order to get out of one. Everyone opted
to play as they were almost flat broke. The singer - conveniently - stayed
hidden. Only when they were on the road again did she make an appearance.
"Thanks, for not telling him I was back there."
"How did you know that was going happen?" Mike - a look alike for
Waylon Jennings - spoke up.
"Trust me, you don't want to know." Christy spoke as she sat down across
the isle from him. None of the band cared - they'd enjoyed pulling one over
on the law officer.
"You know he's going to expect me to sing."
"If he believed you were faking that western accent, then he deserves
what he gets." The singer's rolling her eyes, and sincere grinning, told them
she was going to enjoy the whole thing.
Balladeer: The band may have found amusement in the situation, but
Christy knew her face in Hazard County was going to upset at least one
person, maybe, two. Question I have is …who's?
I hope I can keep this story line going. I've tried others and they've never got this far.
