Let's Play Catch Up!

OK, so it has been a few days.  Sorry.  It's been "come through the door, clean and get to work" for the last few days.
Part of the time constraints stemming from getting back into EBay!  WOOF!  Could there BE a WORSE web site!?  It's so overloaded with sponsor advertising, that it takes up to ten minuets a page, because they have to upload all the bloody moving ads and what have you!  SO many slow downs, it's almost a full time job in itself to keep it up! 
First, on the home front, contrary to her doctors advice, Angela isn't taking it all that easy, as she has been insistent on getting the house (inside and out) decorated to make it WAY Christmasy!  She has succeeded beautifully, I may add, as her work has paid off. Of course, the outside is trimmed with our own personal flair!  Check out the pictures below!  They are very stunning at night!  And pay extra attention to her hand made wreath and see if you can guess what it's base is made from!  And what makes it all so much more impressive is in response to our limited (or shall we say, NON EXISTANT) holiday budget, ALL the decorations were created using recycled materials!  She is VERY resourceful! 
On to work! 
Thursday we were bestowed a very wonderful honor of obtaining a sweet Trek 700 multitrack! The special factor being it had gone through two generations of riders in one family, until coming to rest in the garage.  Over a few years it, sadly, accumulated rust, dry rot and a lot of grime.  Finally, after a purge of the garage, they decided it was time to get rid of it, but were sad to contemplate throwing it away.  Then they were told about us by a friend, and brought it in, with the caveat, that we NOT scrap it, but give it new life.  Like we would even THINK of disposing of such a gem!  After several hours of scrubbing, cleaning, rusticating and a few replacement parts, we got one GORGEOUS old school hybrid!  Check it out below!
With the brief cold snap that came through at the tail end of the week, had some spare time to get some work done!  Yesterday, thanks to Angi, our friend Terry, and the boys, I FINALLY broke down and cleaned out the shed!  YES!  ALL the bikes that have been crammed in there for some time (these are the several rides that our kids have "killed" over the last couple of years, that never made it back up to the shop to either be rebuilt or scrapped) were dropped in the parking lot yesterday (TWO TRIPS!!!) and summarily dismantled (well, I DID save and rebuild two!) and now the carcasses sit piled in the back awaiting their final trip to the scrap yard!
Have managed to put out SEVERAL new rides in the last few days as well, the few that remain are pic'd down below for your perusal!
Today, I have a couple left to work on, but am hoping that many a folk will take advantage of the day and get on down here to get riding!
All right, now you're all up to date!  Now I best get to work!
See y'all soon!!
