Kick Ass Buttons.
My good friend in Grand Junction made me some new buttons for the header page.
I think they are totally awesome. They look great and are better than any button I’ve ever had on any of my sites. Thanks Josh, I owe you big time.

I don’t know when it happened but I must have deleted my stat checking code. Ooops. So I put it back.

Restoring the Rangie.
I finished the brake caliper rebuild. I have the pictures on the camera but I don’t have the write up done yet. Maybe if I get some time this week I’ll put my thoughts on that down.

I installed the calipers on the left side of the Rangie and hooked up the lines. I had to get some new cotter pins for the reinstall. I teased the clerk at Ace Hardware, “What, no stainless?”

And she responded, “Yeah, we got stainless.”

I was a bit surprised so I bought them. So how anal do you have to get to put stainless steel cotter pins on the tie rod ends? I think I have a disease.

I’m trying to decide which project gets my attention next. The weather this week is great but the timing couldn’t be worse. We have a funeral tomorrow and family in town all week. Also RovErica’s softball team meeting is tonight. And Saturday is out as I have been asked to be in a movie production. Something to do with the Civil War. More on that later. So not only do I not have time to do my taxes, I don’t have time to work on my restoration.

Well there’s always next week I guess.
