A long winter's nap while we move onto the boat for a few months.  Yesterday it got a transfusion of pink stuff - haven't had to do that for a long long time.  Tomorrow it gets parked, noisy end out with the cutoffs thrown.   Most important rule of parking equipment - put the noisy end where you can get at it easily.

Last Xmas I got the bus as a present from my wife..this year the bus has been getting presents all year..!!! my wife is doing upholstery for it so I guess that's it's present from her. I have cabinets in and couch built so I guess my present to it is a break from being drilled ,cut,welded,and worked on almost daily. next year it will be able to make the winter trip to Fla and become #1 bus. The 89 will make the trip this year;.while it stays home for a rest.  Merry Xmas to all.   Bob

Heat! The central Illinois winter is so cold I can't work in it. A little heat will extend the working season!
