I met someone on the internet and my Wife is worried.
Now, the link that another friend sent me last night would not bother her in the slightest. It is to a 1966 Land Rover Series IIa 109 on sale for $15,000. She would simply repeat the words she uses on all such occasions: Dream On.
However, the man on the internet rebuilds and restores Land Rovers. And, there is yet another man who lives a couple of towns to the east of us who has two much neglected, if not abandoned, Series IIa 109s for sale at a much lower price. (There are photographs here, but I do not know for how long.) These, I could afford. Yet, were I to speak of projects, there is the ‘honey do’ list. If of hobbies, there are huntin’ and fishin’. An investment? There would be peals of laughter. Building one working Land Rover out of the two would probably be the financial equivalent of having another teen living with us, eating us out of what the preexisting Teen and Preteen kindly leave of house and home.
Och, She’s probably not worried at all. It would be nice, though, if She were: just a wee bit.
