                                                           雨后彩红
       永远失去父亲的那一年,哈伦德还不足5岁,连自己的名字尚拼写不完整,当家里的人哭作一团时,他觉得很好玩,因为一时间没有人能顾及他,他可以自由自在地满镇子去疯。
       14岁辍学后回到了印第安那州的农场,上学时他不开心,干农活仍让他不开心,在电车上售票还是让他不开心,瘦削的小脸上罩满与年龄不相符的沉重与愁苦。
       17岁,他开了一个铁艺铺,生意还未完全做开就不得不宣告倒闭。
       18岁,他找到生命中第一个爱的码头,并栖身在此。但不久后的一天,他再回家时,发现房子里的东西已被搬迁一空,人也不见了踪影,爱情以迅雷不及掩耳的速度流失,码头从此成荒。他尝试过卖保险,失败了。他力争到一份轮胎推销业务,也失败了。他学着经营一条渡船,失败了。他试着开一家汽车加油站,也失败了。
       他几乎在清一色的尝试与失败中晃到了人生的中年,这个中年的生命苍白无力到甚至无法从前妻那儿见自己的女儿一面。为了这日思夜想的一面相见,这个落寞的中年男人想到了绑架,绑架自己的女儿,然而,就连这荒唐之举,在他不惜弯下男儿之驱在路边草丛中潜伏守候了十多个小时之后也宣告失败了。
        这个几乎被失败判了死刑的人,又晃过了几十年无人知也无人欲知的岁月之后,退休之年,一天,他收到了105美元的社会福利金,他用这点福利金最后开了一家想以此维生的快餐店——肯德基家乡鸡——
       随后的快餐史便是一部肯德基史。
 
                                                   No Pain ,No Gain
              In a year in which his father passed away , Harland was less than five years old , without spelling his own name, felt it funny when his family was in grief. He could play freely all over the town because no one cared about him.
             After droping out of the school in his fourteen years , he went back to the farm in Indiana. School didnt make him happy , neither did working at the farm, and being a conductor at tramcar did him so, his small gaunt face was covered with worries and anguish which shouldnt be showed in his age.
             He started a blacksmith's shop at seventeen years, which was closed when his business did not wait for booming.
             In his eighteen , he make his own first family and settled down, but later one day ,when he went back home, he found the house empty and his wife was gone, everything was gone with the wind . he tried to sell insurance without result, he did his best to get a business of wheel sale and lose, he again tried to run a ferry and  unsuccessful, he opened a gas station for cars and finally closed.
             with coutinuous tries and failures he came to his middle age , he was too poor to be allowed by his ex-wife to see his own daughter. to see his daughter ,he even thought of kidnapping daughter.  After waiting for ten hours in the tussock by the road , he ended this absurd without result.
             He , full of failures in his life, went on for  a few decades unnoticed. At retiring ,one day ,he received an socail welfare of $105 which was used to open a fast food shop which he planed to depend on to make a living-----Kentucky Fried Chicken-----
             Of course ,this history of fast food shop is  history of Kentuchy Fried Chicken
