    Remember, today is the tomorrow we worried about yesterday.
    My chest fell, but, fortunately, my belt caught it.
    I don't know everything, nor, have I met the one who does.

    Good news is most everything is indoors (climate controlled).... gonna be a bit though because wife has gone house renovation crazy... I had my fun with the house (shop etc... still have some equipment at the barn though) now its her turn... Health wise, down to some foot issues & weight is a battle (up/down), but I can still buy green bananas! Twin grand-kids turned 5 - plenty of time left to complete Daisy, but its going to be late next summer most likely before I get back on it.

    Cheers

    And I'm barely 5' 7" .......
    Richard, I consider/calculate my weight as "riding two up"

    Just a check in note after about a year from posting. Daisy project is still there, just delayed more than I had hoped for... a few medical issues & house refurbishing (wife) got in the way haha! Both have made significant progress, but its a slow go. Such is life. I think I'm still about a year away from completion "sigh". I'll be answering some emails (PM's) today. Thanks for the questions/concerns in advance

    Cheers

    Don't feel bad, I just rolled my CL out of the shed, aired up the tires so it would push easier, and rolled it back in... that's all I've done in two years.
