Cresting the Rise

A good morning for coasting in Stonington, Connecticut. A sport and gas-saver learned from my father so many years ago.

The sandwich of record here, though, will always be the grinder (never sub).

The clock on Brown's Fuel Oil Service on Victory Blvd. near Castleton Corners keeps remarkably good time. The time stamp for the photo on my cell is 5:54.

From the MTA's email alert messaging system:

Following an earlier system wide incident, elevators and escalators are working as designed.

(Jiri Kovanda, Prague, 1977)
Jiri Kovanda, the Czech artist, didn't get the memo.
