The Midnight Striper, August 15, 2009

I spent last night in the Walmart parking lot in Pittsfield MA. About midnight I awoke to the sound of a small engine accelerating and decelerating. Strange. I look out and here's a guy on a beat up old articulated garden tractor with a striping machine hanging out front with a couple headlights carefully aimed just ahead of it. He's out there striping the parking lot. Fast. He'd slow a bit - stripe a line - then accelerate across to the next line, brake sharply and stripe the next line. Back and forth across the lot. He was done in no time flat and put nary a stripe on my rig. Cool.

BTW, that's a Crane & Co papermill steaming in the background - I wonder if that's where Crane makes currency paper.

Gets Me Into My Boots

Living in a world where the answers to questions can be so many and so good is what gets me out of bed and into my boots every morning.
