New transportation policy

June 9, 2011

“You can’t ride your bike anymore, eh?

“Nope, no way. The legs just aren’t there anymore, if you know what I mean. Now I gotta walk everywhere and, I’ll tell you, that hurts but at least I can do it. What a guy needs is one of those instant transporters from Star Trek.”


They got him

220 dollars - Jul 23 2009

“Look what I got.”


“Yup, two of ’em. $220 for breaking the Highway Traffic Act.”

“What for?”

“Well, I didn’t come to a complete stop at a stop sign and also I didn’t have a bell.”

“They’re hittiing you up for $110 for not coming to a complete stop on your bicycle?”

“Yup. They got me on that one.”

“So I gotta tell you this. You know I wasn’t here yesterday, right?  Well, yesterday, apparently this guy comes barreling up the sidewalk on his bike, grabs onto one of those big new gas BBQs just outside Home Hardware there, and tries to make a break for it. Turns out that’s the guy who’d been casing the store all last week but — you see — the guy tries to make the heist on the one day I’m not down here. Anyway, luckily he didn’t get away with it.

“The people in these stores know one thing — if Tony’s on the street, there won’t be trouble.”
