Dan was quite the mechanic. He could fix virtually anything. Despite his teachers claiming he was a genius, he quit school in the fifth grade. He went from the books to motors, developing his craft quickly.
In a time before Car flip television shows, Stan bought pieces of junk and built them into classics, and sold them for profits.
About the only thing Dan couldn’t do fix was his temptation for video lottery machines. These things took him over, and in no time at all, he had lost his wife, his family and even his home…and eventually he even lost his garage.
This true story is my entry into this week’s Friday Fictioneers.
