LFR May 3 Number 504

Welcome to the Laws Family Register. 

Did you see that!

"Did you see that?" Emma asked. "It looked like a Witch on a Broomstick". 

          "Come on! Pull the other one. It’s got bells on it.” Robert answered quickly doing his best to keep the battered Landrover on the road. “Where did she go? What am I saying, there's no such thing as witches, is there?"

          "Go left here, now!" Emma grabbed at his arm, as he wrestled with the lurching car; he swung hard left into another narrow lane.

          "Heck that was a tight one, I hope we don't meet anyone, it 's a bit narrow down here." Robert said.

They bounced from one pothole to the next, grass growing at the centre of the road, the trees meeting over their heads making the road, like a tunnel.

          Robert turned to Emma and said, "I can't see far in these lanes, can you, I best slow down else we'll crash!”
