I  was 9 days late with that posting --- and no one bit on it.

We finally got 3 warm days with a thunder storm thrown in that knocked down 
our snow.
I'll put the put the right foot peg, brake pedal, signal light and mirror on 
my bike today.  I have a little filing to do at the hinge of the rear foot 
peg and the bike will be ready to ride.  I'll tackle the brush scratches and 
missing paint later.
We had our cottage jacked up the an insulated  basement put in durring the 
winter.  Now I have to wire it, cut down 22 trees, bring in 40 loads of fill 
and landscape the place.  I should do some power whining for a small Kubota 
4x4 tractor to help with this project.  I could use a new toy.
