    More of life's sidetracks...sorry it's going slow.

    Nothing much has happened all summer as I've had to repair Tempest and Germaine a few times to keep moving, a lot of stressful but necessary things to do about the house, the money isn't going far enough and i had to catch up after the repairs, also an uncle passed away (from leukemia).

    Fall has definitely set in and the windy, rainy days make it tough to go out and work on the bikes. I'm concentrating on getting the living room in shape so I can work on them indoors and it kind of puts a kink in trying to strip and repaint a Higgins I want to give to somebody.

    So I continue to work on the house and putting things in order again while finishing audiotaping projects and selling or trading audio gear. Germaine is still at the LBS a month later awaiting a pedal stub the sheared at the crank arm thread to be removed...it apparently broke a bit and now I wonder if I have to wait another month or find a used crank. When one bike is down and the other is as well it gets to be a pain doing much, as I don't always walk so well and finiding a ride for larger tasks is hard.

    If you're reading, I still miss you, East Hill. I hope you are doing fine. I have always appreciated your guidance and encouragement.

    A quarter-year?

    Fear not, I'm not done yet...the weather is clearing and it's about time to go back to work, Rollfast, Schwinn and Higgins...that's a ladies' and a gift. The Ross is gone, given to a friend who can finish it for his girlfriend, it's formerly rusty sister the J.C. Higgins Jetflow(?) is a surprise for a person I just decided to give it to when done ut of the blue a year back. In the meantime I've put a tank and fenders on Germaine, new rims (black) and pedals and am waiting to be able to afford a police style windshield to add to her with a big Ford fender headlamp bezel (and mount the Honda saddlebags)...then I should be done with Germaine...

    I'll get a couple-three pictures up later today, the sun is just rising right now.
