Thanks +Jeff Hendricks​ I'm not alone in bouncing back from injury, most of us have been through at least once. We are all a tough breed out there on our bikes.

I'll get it working, everything in the rebuild kit is right except the big top gasket, and I can make a correct one. It'll be cool.

This is pretty funny stuff... didn't know about most of these.
Google Hangouts is one of the best ways to continuously stay connected on smartphone and desktop either via text or video

Time for a reality check in my life.
I love riding to work. Holy cow, do I love it.
I also need sleep.
I also need some overtime at work to make ends meet, at least temporarily.
I can't do all three.

For the last month, I've been working extra hours. About 9 hours a day, sometimes more. But my being able to do that means I have to get up at "oh-dark-thirty" to get to work on time. And I don't get home until dinner. And because teenagers, I don't get to sleep until way later than I should.

I'm not making a long-term decision, but based on my family's crazy schedule this week, my need for sleep, and the need to make a few extra bucks to build back up my emergency fund... I'm probably not going to ride this week.

I guess I'll survive. I've been meaning to get around to doing some more Zumba lately...

Update on the '65 Rambler: got the carb hot-tanked and rebuilt, put it back on the car, and it's still leaking gas from somewhere. Pulled it off again. Lo and behold, carb body has a pin hole in it just below the jets, under the bowl. Couldn't see it until it was cleaned and all the dirt came out of the hole! Not easily repairable, can't get parts for a Holley 2209 any more. Going to replace it with a new Holley 2300.

My first time speaking at a homeschool convention. I and a friend spoke in a session for beginning homeschooling dads, it was great! We each have 10+ years experience, had a lot of fun!

Thanks to some guidance from +Farrar Hudkins I'll see if I can revive the Rambler with some Fel-Pro bulk gasket material. Otherwise, it's 2 months waiting for the correct one to be made. I'll take my chances, I'm good with an X-acto knife.

A great way to do it if you can is to set the piece you want to make a gasket for on the gasket material and tap or press it lightly to make an indentation. Then you just cut around the indentation, and voila! a gasket! :) Here's hoping you can get something to last you a few months, anyway.
