Speed's Strike Three!

Why oh why does Speed continue to elude me? I made my first attempt the Friday before Memorial Day, the second attempt yesterday and my third today, and have yet to find him! I'm driving South on Mass Ave, turning left into Newmarket Square by Grainger, driving in a complete circle (er, triangle) around the "square," and then bailing out without any sight of him. Is he there yet somehow invisible to me?

  1. I don't think he goes out on Mondays and Tuesdays...

    1. I went friday, ended up eating wingdings from the other trailer

      1. The secret is... call Grainger's, be really, really nice.

        And ask them if the hotdog guy is out there before you head over.

        1. Interesting. The Speed's "apprentices" claimed that they are keeping regular hours M-F 10-5 from now on. Apparently not. I also missed them on the Friday before Memorial Day. Not sure why they would not be there now. Sorry you keep missing them...

          1. Well, I will say, a Speed dog holds much higher interest to me than baseball does, so I'll give it a few more strikes before I call myself out.
