HEY Stranger!

Yes.  It HAS been a few days!  Forgive me the interlude, but for the last few days Angi has been sick with bronchitis, so the majority of my time, attention and worry has been focused on her.  As the shop has been relatively quiet, except for a banger day yesterday, haven't had a heck of a lot to write about anyway.  Of course, with Momma being down for the count, and my time spent at home split between caring for her and trying to keep the kiddos under control, it ha been chaotic.  Of course, without Mommy's constant, stalwart attention on what the children are up to, they take FULL advantage of the situation!  Instead of bucking up, in a hard situation, and helping out, they re prone to run crazy like rabid, feral beasts!  Each morning I get up, I spend a little time straightening up from the night before.  However, once the kids get up and start getting ready for school, all I had done an hour before, is undone.  Being to ill to notice, Angi had not taken a close look at the condition of thing until this morning, while trying to locate Miranda's bottle, she began to notice the piles of debris, the state of the kid's room's and bathroom, and became justifiably indignant!  Needless to say, today I will be heading home with the little blighters, and with the fear of God in them, they WILL be taking care of their messes!  In her recovery, Angela should NOT have to contend with these disasters!
On to work!
Having finally acquired some goodies over the weekend, I was able to get three newbies out yesterday and we are starting to fill up again!  And JUST in the nick of time!  The wonderful weather of the last few days has brought folks out of their shells, and peaked their interest in riding again!  One of the ones I put together yesterday sold RIGHT quick, a sweet old Huffy "DAILY BANGER SPECIAL!".  Have two more left from the first run (seen below) and have plenty more to put together!  PLUS, the repairs, once again are flowing in!  As usual, folks have gone elsewhere, been given astronomically high quotes for repairing their rides and disheartened, came here to sell it, only to be informed by me, that if their desire was to ride, why buy a NEW bike, when for a mere pittance, we could fix up their old one, and get them on the road with a bike they KNOW fits them!  LOVE that look of relief and joy that washes over their faces!
And, we did send two more home yesterday with equally happy folk!
So, today, it's back to the rack to put out some MORE goodies!  Got a REAL sweet Gary Fisher eager to get a jump on a new life!
Hope to see you soon! PEACE!

  1. Oh, there you are, Perry.

    Glad it's just chaos as usual in Atherton Castle- ya had me worried there, laddie.

    Hope to head up your way at least once this week, and will stop in to kick tires.

    Still trying to get over the loss of the bakery, though...

  2. HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! You just quoted THE most brilliant cartoon, EVER! Phineas and Ferb! LOVE IT!!!!!!
