3 Unrelated Thoughts

1. Mostly low-wage workers in a low-wage society working on Labor Day, right?

2. I don't think the good people of Buffalo can handle another losing season by the Bills.

3. Refreshed from vacation, cable news talkers will be ready to start blabbing about 2016 presidential election.

Food Trucks and Classic Rock

I'm thinking of things that make people happy. Food trucks have to be on the list. This is Buffalo's favorite food truck.

I have a five-word review of their food: Lives up to the hype. I enjoyed some food from Lloyd earlier today. I was at a fun event that had food trucks and a cover band. The first song they played was "White Room" by Cream, which pleased my inner classic rock soul. They also played a Bad Company tune. Bad Company doesn't usually make it into a cover band's rotation. Being raised on classic rock, I never turn away from a Bad Company song. Don't judge me.

I'm grumpy 74%* of life but give me good grub from a truck and classic rock and I'm good.

*Very rough estimate. Family, baseball, and sociology are some other things that make me happy.
