The Plan: Part 1

Some years ago, we used to park at the neighborhood bar and then go in one car to play golf. One morning, a company was re-striping the parking lot and one of the guys we played with, one of the owners, told them to put my and Big Tony’s initials at the head of the spots we always parked in.

We returned, and there they were. Over the years the valets got less protective of our spots; and, the weather has worn away a lot of the paint.

Tony would park in my spot if his was taken (bastard); but, none of our friends would ever park in our spots. I still won’t park into Tony’s.

I know it won’t do any good. I’ve decided to re-stripe Tony’s spot. I bought a can of paint and had a plan to re-do his initials, then I decided to do the whole space – tomorrow morning early so it would dry before there was any traffic. I was telling Mac about it today after work at the bar (someone was parked in Tony’s spot). Mac, the practical person that he is told me about how my plan was flawed. First there isn’t any way I can get the initials right without a template. And, doing the ten or so foot lines marking the space would be a nightmare without some 1 by 4’s.

So it isn’t happening tomorrow morning before going to play golf. Next weekend I guess. I’ll let you know if I get arrested for vandalism. If not, I’ll take a picture.
