I don’t have much to discuss today. Well, I do, but some of it I’m holding back…kinda like a teaser…I’ve got some ideas on the Midlife Crisis resolution — I liked the train trip idea from Doggonedmysteries ALOT and we are looking into that. But there were a couple more that I’m giving thought to…could even be life-altering in one way or another. Enough teasing. You will have to wait longer.
So what’s going on? Well I was cruising around the neighborhood running errands and I spotted a little business we have here in town. Now I told you about Elliot the Accountant the other day, so why not tell you about this little enterprise too?
I can’t name it for two reasons. The first is the legal thing – they could sue me and then I would no longer blog and ya’ll would miss me terribly I just know. (snort) The second reason is there is no name listed on this business. None. Nada. Zip. Zilch. Zero. Nothing to actually TELL you what they do. But…it looks somewhat like an old quasi-dilapidated gas station and there are always lots of cars parked outside….cars in various sof disrepair. Usually when I drive by there are two or three junkyard dogs chained up outside, too. Did I mention I hate people who chain up their dogs?
Sounds like this is an auto repair shop, doesn’t it? But they only have one garage bay and it’s seldom open. When it IS open, it doesn’t seem as if any cars are bein worked on. Now I don’t want to jump to conclusions here…but don’t you find it odd that a business would sit out there in the world and have NO NAME and NO SIGN on it at all? That’s NO advertising. So all their work shows up from word of mouth? I have one word for this…bizarre.
I actually have two more words for this and it’s killing me with curiosity: chop shop. There, I said it. I think it’s a shady place but I’m not about to identify it or do anything about it whatsoever. What’s odd is a couple of years ago the police raided a residential house a street away from this business and found a gambling parlor complete with bookies and slot machines – the whole shebang. So the few streets around this section of town have a somewhat shady past. Except there is a church nearby so maybe I shouldn’t get too graphic about this.
So if you show up here on a fairly regular basis like my 11 faithful readers….and one day I mysteriously disappear… it’s coz I actually dropped into that business and asked them what they do. Uh-huh…chop shop…and I ain’t talkin’ Ginzu knives baby…sigh
