a dedication to Jo

I decided to dedicate the last Flash Fiction, Safety First, that I wrote for Chuck Wendig's challenge to dear Jo, may you rest in peace.

The photo I took of him with his hair flying in the wind down Bentz Street near the McDonalds Raw Bar in some city in Maryland years ago popped in my mind yesterday  when I saw a cadmium red 883 Harely parked on the sidewalk around the corner next to Cafe le Marigny.  I was driving my car when I took the photo.

When the helmet law was instituted in Maryland Jo wore his helmet on the ride down to DC and as soon as he crossed the border he'd rip it off his head and wing it into our car that we drove next to him.

Jo, you will forever be in my heart.
