Little bit of rain with my coffee this morning. Looks like a lot more rain over the next couple of days. I put the Electra on the table last night. I'm seriously considering parting with, or parting out, Fiona for extra cash.

Starbucks coffee in the coffee maker this morning.

Speaking of rain. Rained cats and dogs last night here. My grass is still green.
Supposed to drop down to the 60F next week here.

Get your kids to drum up biker funds flame, with lemonade stands and mowing lawns.
But. If fiona has to contribute to the cause. So be it.

My place is sure staying wet for being in the permian basin.

Well having some 'Wide Awake' french roast this AM/PM, late start today.
Had some snow yesterday but not our first for the season. Won't be too much riding now.

Still in the shop wiring up a 1969 Firebird. What a project that turned out to be.
The owner keeps adding things that require me to rethink what I already did.

Stay frosty my friends.

“Dec”, good to here from you! Am guessing your shop/garage will stay full and keep you busy. Did the lovely lady with the “Panhead” get straightened out?

Paul,

Did you mean the '69 Shovel I had in the shop?
The gal, Tracey, took the bike and sent to the west coast with a friend that is
going to do a frame up restoration on it. She did get to ride it around town for a while
and she was happy with the work I did to get it road worthy.

I had a '67 shovel project to work on but the owner sold it and the new owner
will do the rest of the work on it.

Dec, I have a garage full of bikes that need to be worked on, but the owners suck at paying me for the work or parts. Half day today, cause it's my weekend to man the front desk. Coffee for all of you dirty bikers.

Miserable conditions since monday. So I am percolating coffee all day as I poke around in the cold shop.

Harry that doesn't seem very desert like! That's pretty much what our weather has been lately.

I'm on my off week, stuck in more or less night shift mode, even though I'm not working. Just had a cup, there's plenty more for those late night dwellers (or those on the other side of the world). Help yourselves!

Ta! I need a really big mug full.
I've decided I have waaaay too much stuff.
I thought I'd done well downsizing, but I was kidding myself. How can one person have more than a container load of belongings not inclusive of any petrol-bearing toys or tools??

Edit... weather here is warm and humid but we had some much-needed rain at last. Hope you kept warm and caffeinated Harry.
