She can move her arm but doesn't want to. We're watching it closely cause we want her to have a good time on vacation, cast or no cast. She demands I'm there to nurture her and got great sleep last night sleeping next to her at 9pm. Hopefully she's ok. My baby girl being hurt hurts me.
Hopefully everything will be ok Henry. I will keep her in my prayers tonight. Let us know how she does.

matts37chev I picked up and test fit new tires for my new wheels for my 38 today

tech69 I'd like to do some metal shaping but there's a local car show down the block tomorrow and would love to pedal my way down there on my 49ers bike. This means I should probably give the fenders a quick sand n buff and clean it up since I was way to darn excited to wait like a normal human for the sanded clear to air out and it has died back a tad. Will put the buffer on it first to see If I can do without sanding but will probably have to run some 2500 on it.

tech69 I think it's good to skip around some times. It's like a mental thing. It feels good to move on and then when that burned out feeling subsides you go back. Good stuff there John. It is a great feeling to spray primer on something you worked on.

What are you doin' takin' pics of the right side...

Get back to welding and GRINDING the left....

I FINALLY decided to upgrade my internet speed from 1.5 to 7 megs. I have Century Link and they are the ONLY phone company in this area. Talk about a monopoly. It took 2 DAYS and 2 HOURS on the phone to finally get someone who knew what they were doing to get it switched...

Good grief, how hard can it be to accomplish that ??? The last guy got it done in about 15 minutes...

Century Link sucks.

LOL, Missed this earlier.....Pretty cool. They were making V8-60 powered motocycles here for a while but unfortunately they did not use a transmission in them. I would not be interested in anything with one gear but they looked good and sounded better.

You're probibly right I didn't think of it that way. Maybe they didn't either when that trailer was built.

More ladders and scrubbing

My house has white siding (I think) (So far as I can remember anyway)
We live in an area where it rains all winter and algae grows on everything
So, come springtime, my house is mostly grey, with black & green accents

So - ladders & scrub brushes and soap and pressure washers and etc time again
