Sunday morning ride
It was the best of rides. It was the worst of rides. German drove his 2008 Dodge Charger on Glendora Mountain Road on his way to Baldy Village at 6 am in the morning. Joanna was seated beside him. He lost control of the car near mile marker 7.0. It was the longest moment of his life as the car flew over the edge and landed in a bush a few feet. The first responders roared up the mountain. Hook and Ladder. Paramedics. Ambulance. Sheriff's vehicles. Jan's Tow Truck. The long bed. German and Joanna were walking talking and a bit shaken. German said he was still paying for the car. Joanna had not yet eaten breakfast. It was 10 am. An extremely lucky couple. indeed.
