Like many of us, I suspect, I have a favorite pizza place. Been using them for a very long time now: well over 20 years. It has long since gotten to the point where they recognize my voice, so when I call to place an order I say "hi" and tell them what I want, end of call. No "what's your address" or "how will you pay". I love it when a long-term business relationship settles into that sort of comfortable phase.

Which is why it was a bit of a shock tonight to hear that a new owner has bought the business, and will be taking over on Monday. Apparently this new owner is bringing in all new people, so I had to say goodbye over the phone to the folks who have been taking good care of my pizza needs for so many years.

Not a tragedy, of course; nothing on the scale of the real travails the world is going through now. But it does make me a bit sad when a long-term relationship -- even if only in the sense of commerce -- comes to an end.

Ah well. Change is the unchanging nature of things, I guess.
