All you need is

To chop,

Or not to chop, that is the question. Caroline in what is quickly becoming her natural habitat.


I've been working on the design for my next tattoo. I'm itching bad!!!!

My little artist.

Abbys' first ever rendering in acrylic on canvas. Pretty respectable for a young lady who is only 9 years old!!!

Oh Caroline, why?

Why do you hate me so? Pulled the primary drive off to remove the shifter bracket from the rachet lid in order to fabricate a hand shift lever. Of course, in true Caroline fashion, the clutch push rod pulled out of the transmission mainshaft. As most of you probably know, this is a no-no! So, off with the transmission end cap, and of course the clip that supposedly retains the thrust bearing is MIA!

Quote of the day.

When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life in such a manner that when you die the world cries and you rejoice.

Indian Proverb


For spring, for parts, for the engine shop, for SOMETHING to happen! No matter, waiting sucks!

Word of the day...

Luke 2:25-35

25 Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was on him. 26 It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah. 27 Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required, 28 Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying:

29 “Sovereign Lord, as you have promised,
you may now dismiss[d] your servant in peace.
30 For my eyes have seen your salvation,
31 which you have prepared in the sight of all nations:
32 a light for revelation to the Gentiles,
and the glory of your people Israel.”

33 The child’s father and mother marveled at what was said about him. 34 Then Simeon blessed them and said to Mary, his mother: “This child is destined to cause the falling and rising of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be spoken against, 35 so that the thoughts of many hearts will be revealed. And a sword will pierce your own soul too.”

I loathe and despise

The USPS!!!! RatPan did an outstanding job welding up the seat location, and what does the post office do? That's right, they proceed to break fins off of my head!
