This was a mixed kinda day

First the good news, I got out of the house and I’m not in horrible pain. In fact I feel pretty god physically right now. Now the Bad News, I lost my wallet with my ID and ATM card. And my bus pass and $10 but I managed to get home without the bus pass and the $10 can be replaced. I was fortunate that on my way back I was never asked to present my bus pass and the same guy that sold me my pass remembered me on the return trip to the house from the transit station.

On other good news I got the presta adapters and the tire is pumped up now, I’ll get the other tire tomorrow then go out and collect high-point check-ins. I was fortunate to have a large handful of loose change I grabbed off my desk before I left the house to pay for the adapters. I’m also fortunate that there will be a Starbucks to wait around in near the big point check-ins so I can keep warm when the temperature drops tomorrow.

And I need to go do Other Things now so time to put this post to bed.

Still stuck in the house

I’m still stuck in the house with a bum foot, and still stuck on moving forward with the hot rod. I tried to get up early and get the presta adapter but walking was like sticking nails in my foot. Significantly smaller nails today than yesterday but going from 20 penny to 10 when you prefer none is a difference without a significance. Or to phrase it differently, slightly less pain is still more pain than I would like.

Moving forward on the hot rod requires either having the parts from the donor car which isn’t here yet, or scale drawings of the parts I need to figure out which rear caliper I’m going to end up using. I mean I know which caliper I’m going to be using for my parking brake but I’m still unsure of which end of the car they are going to be mounted on. If I can’t fit them to the Chrysler knuckle I’ll use this bracket kit to mount them to the front spindles, or if I can put them on the back like they are supposed to go I can use any of a number of big brake kits on the front axle.

Well I’m out of things to discuss and out of time to post them anyway.
