and his new wife Betty were vacationing in Europe... as
it happens, near Transylvania. They were driving in a rental car along a rather deserted
highway. It was late and raining very hard. Bob
could barely see the road in front of the car. Suddenly
the car skids out of control! Bob attempts to
control the car, but to no avail! The car swerves and
smashes into a tree.
Moments later, Bob
