If your birthday is on 4/09 shouldn't you be racing a '62 Chevy? That'd be real fine.  :roll:  :cheers:

When I saw my picture on the side of a milk carton, I figured I should probably check in with my friends.

Everyone - thank you for the well-wishes.

My health is good - best in 2 years.

Last May, the company I worked for was purchased by another firm. I stayed on with the new owners until October in a position that I wasn't particularly well suited to, and while I might have been able to make a go of it, the one thing I have learned during my cancer bout is that life is too damned short to deal with Bentley. I'll find something, it will be in my wheel house and on my terms. It may take a while, but anyone who has followed this build diary knows that, if nothing else, I am persistent.

I've been a bit down of late, and I've let both this build diary and the Midget get overgrown with weeds. But it's spring, and time to re-energize this effort.

Again, I take great encouragement from this forum and my friends here. Watching other builds and gathering other people's takes on what's going on is important to me - I really am awestruck by the wit and talent on these forums.

Thank you - everybody!

A Happy Easter to everyone.
