Harry,

147 has run well. Slipped under the radar somewhat yesterday as usual! Five close finishes so far, three more races entered. One of them’s bound to be a winner! Should be good by Friday

We’ll catch up soon.

  1. But what’s behind the goddam door in the safehouse? How did they get there? Laser eyes? And Anthony, if not blasted by cornea-lasers, how was he taken?

    Enough is enough – we need answers !

    However, great writing – really enjoying these flash series of yours!

    ps – great name mate. Nor surprise you boast such talent as you do !
