You have set a very high standard my friend. I do my best to follow.
:) your way too kind. Your skills and attention to detail on resto's are well known John, there are lots of us who are inspired by the work you do. Im doing my best to learn from folks like you. ill get there one day if I keep at it, we will see how many more of these projects i decide to take on.

Trying to decide if im staying in the resto/collector game or selling much of it off...we will see. Changes from one day to the next :)

Sorry to see that John, the things you do for your neighbors....

hope it heals fast, only 8 weeks to bike riding season (where you are, longer for me :) )

It's not bad Paul. A bit uncomfortable, but no meds needed, not even the day it happened. Must be getting tougher in my old age, or dumber.
Lets go with a little of both, We are all in the same boat :)

If I'm reasonably healthy and the lawyers haven't taken all of my $$ I may be able to help lighten the load.

Read your PSB piece. Wonder if I should write to say I've bought the same 4 bikes from you :smt003

Still healing, but I think I'll need new riding gloves to accommodate the new shape of my hand.

The arm (radius) has healed perfectly. The metacarpal, not so much.

Inflammatory arthritis of the thumb is obvious. The joint is a mess. Bone on bone now.
