When Your Neighbors Are Awesome
You know it's a great day for yardwork when this guy fires up his rig and gets busy. A master of efficiency, he is often seen pulling the wagon loaded with:
—one jug of gasoline
—one bored teenager, fed up with walking
—a bushel of twigs
—an empty dog food bag weighed down with a rock
Today he went up the sidewalk hauling about a dozen coat hangers in a cardboard box. I don't know where he went, but he came back ten minutes later hauling this boy. Some strollers had to get off the sidewalk so he could pass.
I've heard that Amtrak trains can move a ton of freight over 400 miles on a gallon of fuel. This guy, I believe, is running his own tests, pushing the fuel-to-work efficiency ratio. Sky's the limit, old son.
