Work Talk, Pancakes and Wheelchairs

I start my new job next week. After working in twenty-five states, I will once again have the opportunity to work in the town I live in. I will miss the job I left.

I took great pleasure parking my dented, muddy, eleven year old truck in the same parking lot next to Teslas, Mercedes, BMWs, and the like. Sometimes I parked in the spaces next to those cars.
