A Year Ago

Yes, I rode to work today.

This morning it was 68F/20C and cloudy for the commute to work. A year ago it was also cloudy  for my ride to work, but the temperature was only 29F/-2C.  Just a little different.

The "Burger Guy" was doing a brisk business today. The Burger Guy was a fixture on this corner for years until the City got the bright idea to sell the rights to these "prime" locations. The Burger Guy bid what he knew the corner was worth. Some hotshot bid almost twice as much and the Burger Guy lost his corner. Hardly any of the Burger Guys regulars patronized the new guy. Much of this was due to loyalty, but from what I hear the New Guy's burgers weren't all that good and cost more which certainly didn't help his cause. Anyway, after a year the new guy has defaulted and Burger Guy is back...and so are his customers. Sometimes there is a happy ending.

  • 68F/20C and cloudy for my ride to work.
  • 81F/27C and pretty sunny for the ride home.


  1. Ha. Good story. I like the happy ending. Cute little children's story someone should sketch up. Doesn't have to be burgers, could be flowers or apples...

    1. Hadn't thought of it as a children's story, but I see your thinking. Heaven knows we can use a few more happy endings.

      Thanks for stopping by,

  2. wait...the little guy won?

    1. Yep, pretty cool.
