Company at the Company

My work schedule, such as it is, was even more fluid than usual yesterday, so I can’t tell you what time it was that I finally rolled into the shop, other than that it was — fortuitously — about 30 seconds before Scott and Jenny Parsons came through the door.

Yes, this stuff we like to think Ben Franklin invented, or at least discovered, is ubiquitous to my existence, as it probably is yours, assuming you’re reading this blog, the composition […]
