Back to the real world. The real world is not my favorite place. I prefer my own specially blended version of reality, complete with as many ultra hott guys who are actually interested in me, or at least tolerant in such a way that they can serve as wallpaper for the world around me. Hmm… what does it say that even in my fantasy lands the guys are interested in someone else? LoL I’m betting there are more than a few mental health professionals that could take that and spin it out for a few billing hours…

Hmph… anyway..

I Found out today that one of the first people I met when I moved to MA, who helped me out and whose establishment and family, have taken care of me for years with my automotive needs.

He was one of those guys that treated you right but didn’t waste time with mincing words, he told you how it was, how he felt about it, and what should be done to fix it. When I called home I described him as having just met a real life Tony Soprano! But in a good way. He could be intimidating, but at the same time you knew what he was telling you was the truth and that he was working his hardest to make sure you came away with the best of a situation while taking care of his needs too.

After a while and with some health concerns the business fell more to his son in the face to face contacts I had. But you could always feel his guiding hand.

I knew my car and needs were in good hands.

And now as I am nearly two months into my 5th year living in MA, this giant and force of nature has left our realm to travel in the next.

My heart goes out to his family and friends.

Larry, you will be missed. And thank you so much for your help and honesty over the years.
