Man, have I ever been lax around here. In my defense I have been uber busy.

The Car Guy and I did a fast run out to Albuquerque to drop off a car to his daughter. In a moment of synchronicity his daughter's van died at the same time as the DO was trying to sell hers. Since it was here and the price was right Car Guy bought it and we delivered it. Then loaded up some of his stuff and turned right around and came back. It was fun.

We got a completely unexpected tax bill from the state of Utah for almost three thousand dollars. Pretty much depleted the gun fund so Lu's holster and the grips for my Redhawk are on the back burner until I can refund it. Not to mention no new boom sticks for a while. Sucky.

Baby Girl got her cast off and then promptly had to go to the dentist for a fairly significant procedure. She was not happy.

The kid's school is going well but being a soccer grandpa is eating up more time than I remembered from my days as a dad. You folks with school age children have my complete and total respect.

I finally got the front end finished on the Corvette. Now it needs to be aligned and some tiddly stuff done before I have it inspected and registered here. Then it's off to the car lot and hopefully a new owner.

Angus is still going a thousand miles an hour (though training time is suffering) and Chrisi is hanging in there. The Car Guy got himself a brand new super deluxe MTB and passed on his old one to me. It's a significant upgrade from what I was riding before. I promise a post just as soon as I get the time to actually ride the thing.

I know I know, it's totally sniveling.

Dang, wish I had know you were going to be in my neck of the woods.

Ah well, maybe next time.

Real life DOES get in the way sometimes huh?

I didn't realize you were in that area Instinct. The Car Guy and I will certainly be out that way again and when we do I'll drop you a line. Lunch is on me.

You said it Keads.

Do NOT tell my husband about the Vette.

Next time I'll hit you up and we'll do it Instinct. I'll bring the Redhawk!

I wouldn't cross you for anything LauraB. I know you can shoot!
