my best friend has moved to Tavaree,Florida & comute's to Daytona.
Tavares is in Lake County and Daytona is in Volusia County. That's as ridiculously long a commute as a guy I know who commutes from Athens to Norcross (53 miles; 6 days a week) because his wife commutes from Athens to Augusta (100 miles; stays over).
Your poor friend, he doesn't hardly have time to enjoy that Daytona pizza before he has to hitch up and head home. It must take the poor cuss two hours each way, by my estimation....
Or, as Tampa Tribune's now-retired Sports Editor Tom McEwen (a Wauchula Florida cracker who's remotely kin to me) once said in a column as to why he and his wife continued to live on Davis Islands near downtown Tampa, "Any real Florida cracker knows that you never live more than 8 minutes from work... unless you're going to work a cattle drive. Hell, I can WALK to work in 20 minutes... and the view along Tampa Bay is stupendous. To hell with these ticky-tacky suburbs!"
I hope your friend has time to enjoy his pizza....
Unsandily, Ort. Carlton, not quite a Floridian-in-exile in Athens, Georgia.
