Sorry John. I was thinking of you when I saw the turnout last night!

I hope you aren't on any blood thinner medication. A minor bump can lead to severe internal bleeding. I know it seems foolish to those of us who have been in the same place, but you may want to get checked by a doctor. People have collapsed and died a few days after a hit to the head from bleeding/aneurism.

well I did bleed for a while but to tell the truth my wifes hit me harder...If I went to the doctor every time I got brused between the shop and her Id never get anything done.I was lucky ,it hit me right on my eyebrow where all the bone is and left a nice gash ...its been a rough week though, that eye swelled up and almost closed, yesterday was a nice shade of purple.this morning its going back to normal.... Mostly it hurt my feelings because it was so stupid,I had no idea there was a retainer washer on the other side so it looked like the bolt was stripped and just spinning around in there so I spun the ratchet around really fast using one finger and being the last bolt ,when it let loose the whole thing fell ,having no bushings at all at either end certainly didnt help...funny thing is nobody believes me when I say it was a sway bar but when I say my wife did it ................

There are times when you need to visit a doctor, this is one of them Mike. Life is too precious to let something happen. I know your are a bad ars but really, you should see a doctor.

Wow. Working on your car sounds like a great idea. I may try that soon.

Spent last week in the Smokeys on the bike. Had a great week but glad to be home.

Motel room had a screened in back porch. This is the view of the creek from the back porch.

LOL, Ready for a nice view from my basement.

We went by the Wheels Through Time motorcycle museum in Maggie Valley, NC and spent a few hours there. Dale Walksler and his son Max were both there at the time. I spoke to Dale briefly but had a really nice 30-45 minute conversation with his son Max about the museum and their TV show but mostly about himself and the history that is represented there. He even cranked up a 1914 Harley Davidson twin for us.

Max is a very bright and respectful 31 year old and it was a real pleasure to talk to him while we were there.

I Highly recommend the Museum for anyone that finds them self in the area and promise you there are hundreds of things in there that are just fascinating.

We plan to do a Smokies/Appalachia trip in the near future too. Now that our son is out of high school, we will venture out more to places he isn't interested in seeing.
Sounds like you had a good time. Hope Barb enjoyed the museum too...

I finished rebuilding/replacing the entire front suspension on a friend's Chevelle Friday morning and trailered it to the alignment shop. It was done around 12:30 and once back here, we drove his '72 and my '66 to the first No. St. Paul car show of the season. Can't get over forgetting my camera. The place was PACKED !!! I knew it would be busy and we got there at 3 pm for good parking on the main street. Seems everyone is ready to forget the long and terribly cold winter...

I suspect that there is an epidemic of cabin fever up there. Shame on you for not taking the camera.

I had it on my tool box to put in the car and walked away to do something else and forgot it.

Of all the things I've lost in life, I miss my memory the most.

I'll try to do better in 2 weeks when I go to BTTF...
