LONG BLACK LIMOS … hmmm
A major partner of a franchise I was with, never gave up on us when every one else turned their heads and washed their hands of us. We ended a particular season with so many loses that it was really hard to look anyone in the eye - including each other.
Nevertheless, this guy said we deserved a day of our own for the effort all season. His company was going to supply a fleet of long BLACK LIMOS, and give a ride down main street in the fashion that we deserved.
“LONG BLACK LIMOS!!!” Now that’s more like it … just like the Big Leagues!!!
So, we all arrived … wives and girl friends, families and all at the stadium when up drives eight of the biggest LONG BLACK LIMOS that I’ve ever seen. And leading the way was another long black stretch-type care with a long metal back … kind of like a pickup truck bed, with flowers.
This owner had a chain of funeral homes. So, in light our season, he supplied eight LONG BLACK LIMO hearsts, to follow the flower car. And yes, we did drive right down the heart of town…
Well, I took a few months before my lovely bride would talk to me again, one guy almost had an engagment ring returned, and even now I’m the butt of a few jokes here and there. :dozey:
