post for 8 3 ought 7
Today I'll be visiting a guy who supposedly does decent restoration work on cars. He primarily works on traditional hot rods, but he may be able to assist me with some of the things the Buick needs.
As I write this I'm at Pop's because the guy who does the work is in Inverness.
Inverness is a small town with a bunch of historic flavor to it - which is the exact reason I don't like it because it reminds me of Northeastern Connecticut too much. I can tolerate Inverness for about a day but then it starts to irritate the crap out of me. At that point I can't wait to get out o' Dodge.
There's nothing inherently bad about Inverness other than the fact it's a small town. When I left New England I made a conscious decision to get as far away from small-town living as possible. Towns that have small flavor just irk me these days. Maybe someday I'll come to appreciate them again - but not any time soon. 😀 I like Tampa. Big town. Big highways. Lots of convenience. Lots of people. Activity. Life. I like the ultra-touristy nature of the place. For many people that's a huge turn-off, but I like it - and I say that sincerely.
