Hilarious. A friend of mine was at a party in Miami. He was asked who did the best art restoration in the area, my friend said he thought it was a guy named Jim Swope, based in West Palm Beach. My friend woke up this morning, and decided to do a Google search to make sure he gave the guy the right name, and turned up this, including a post-graduate, dark-haired yours truly in an image that I had never seen, with yet another variation on the spelling of my name. The followup story is that while working for Jim in Georgia, I got word that I got the tenure track teaching job at FIU in Miami, moved to South Florida, and he and I became great friends.
