It’s been too long since I’ve given you an update. Seriously. I know I’ve used the same line before but there’s a big payoff at the end of this journal entry. Stick with me, we’re making progress.
When I left you last, I had just finished the installation of my ’37 Buick’s fuel tank and rear leaf springs. To finish off the rear suspension I added the rear stabilizer bar and shock links. As soon as the rear suspension was complete, I installed my car’s wheels and pushed it out into the direct sunshine for the first time in 4 years. I grinned, took a few photos and pushed the old girl back into the garage.
At this point, trout season opened in Pennsylvania and I hit the water during all of my spare time. Since I’m trying my best to be both a good father and a good husband, I only have a limited amount of spare time for hobbies. If I’m spending time fishing, I’m not spending time on the Buick. Days turned to weeks and weeks turned into a month. Then one day, a couple of interns came to my library.
