Places

The following list of places are used in the blog. These locations are entirely fictitious. Details are added as the author discovers/creates them.

  • Bette’s Book Emporium: Locally owned book store. Most of the books are used, but the owners pride themselves on being able to find anything (anything), new or used. Owned and operated by the four Bette’s, who are all retired librarians and school teachers. Numerous cats make the store their home.
  • Reckless Dive: A classic small-town combination business – a music store, music academy, performance space, coffee shop and tattoo parlor. The tattoo portion is publicly defined as a separate business renting out previously unused space.The tattoo artist operates out of a room with a private entrance, located in the far opposite corner from a similar space utilized by the music academy. As a result, children learned to play the violin in one corner, while sober, ID-holding adults permanently embellished patches of skin in another.
