Christmas In January


I got my new (to me) lift yesterday. It’s a Harbor Freight lift with all its inadequacies and I love it! Yes; the front wheel vise sucks and is woefully inadequate and it’s not anything like a Handy lift, but it’s a lift and it works! I’m happier than a tornado in a trailer park!

Yesterday, I felt like a kid on Christmas. The anticipation had me almost twitchy. I had to restrain myself from texting Matthew with numerous, “Where are you?” texts. Then, at about 9:45 he texted me with the message that ETA was at 13:30. All I had to do then was watch the clock and try to relax.

Matthew arrived on schedule. We unloaded the lift and got it into the garage. Then, we went and got lunch. Matthew asked if he could impose on my hospitality and stay overnight and I was quick to say, “Yes; certainly!” He also had brought some additional gifts; a travel mug and some Benton’s Bacon and his last sticker of Glitch kicking the Reaper’s butt. That will go on the windshield once I get the Express back up and running. The travel mug is really neat; it has a design that I had sent out in a joke e-mail a few days ago. I’ll put a photo of it at the end of this Snippet.

We went to Big Boy and had an early lunch. We were going to hit Velvet Smoke for dinner, so we ate light. after lunch, we came back to the house and moved the lift into the basement and brought the Express into the basement and put it on the lift. I’m going to rearrange the LED lights so that there’s more light on the bike.

David had given me one of those screw in LED lights that puts out about a brazillion lumens for Christmas, and that helped enormously on one side. Once I move one of the 4 foot fixtures, I’ll have better lighting on the lift and the left side of whatever bike is on it.

Anyhow; Matthew and I headed out to Velvet Smoke so that we would be there when they opened at 4:30. When we got there, there was a notice on the door that because the Bengals were in a Playoff Game, their hours were changed for the day to Noon to 4:00 PM. They were closed. So we came back to the house. We finally decided to hit an Outback Steak House. Matthew had Prime Rib and I tried their New! Meatloaf. We also got some Tater Tots that were the size of tennis balls with a dipping sauce. Everything was pretty good. Then we came back to the house and watched Stagecoach (the original 1939 movie) and The Outlaw Josie Wales. Matthew is another one of us weirdos who enjoys sleeping on a recliner, so both of my recliners got use for a change. I enjoy sleeping on a recliner enough that it’s hard for me to understand why most folks don’t.

Anyway; Matthew left a little while ago. The temperature warmed up a little bit overnight to a balmy 26º F (-3º C) There’s snow showers in the forecast, but I looked at the weather radar and he’ll be well below the snow all the way back to Georgia.

I really want to say Thank You!!! to Joe, Mike and Matthew. The gift of a lift is enormous and I very much appreciate it along with the logistics of getting it from Florida to Cheviot.

Now; Here’s the bike on the raised lift :



And here’s the side that’s going to have light fixtures relocated :



And here’s the Travel Mug:
