Another generation of work ethic...

Hot Truck on the Arts QuadCan you even imagine working for four decades at the same job, and in all that time, being able to count on your fingers the number of scheduled days of work you'd missed? That just doesn't happen any more, but it was the most natural thing in the world to Bob Petrillose. He loved spending all afternoon with his wife and then all night with dozens or hundreds of hungry students and other area residents.

Bob's family has established a scholarship in his name at Cornell's School of Hotel Administration. Contributions may be sent to The Robert C. Petrillose Scholarship Fund, Tompkins Trust Company, Attention Sue Lason, PO Box 460, Ithaca, NY 14851.

Without FlashCalling hours have been scheduled for Friday afternoon from 4:00-7:00pm at McInerny Funeral Home in Elmira, and a service will be held this Saturday morning at 10:00, at the First Presbyterian Church in Elmira. A memorial service is being planned for a later date at Cornell's Sage Chapel.

My friend Beth and I went to the Shortstop Deli last night to indulge our Hot Truck craving, and since I knew I couldn't have the MBC Link that was always my signature sub, I got a T-Sui. Well, I actually got a "Grand Slam" Sui, in Shortstop parlance, but it amounts to the same thing. I saved half for today's lunch.
