    Xmas present from the wife rocks!

    It was a big mysery on christmas day, with her saying it would be delivered "tomorrow". Well, when the truck showed up and opened the doors, she had bought me a gigantic 2-stage air compressor! This thing is like 6 feet tall - 7hp motor, 14 cfm at 175 psi. I couldn't believe my eyes! Needless to say, I didn't have the heart to tell her the garage isn't wired for 230 volts, but I can take care of that.

    And to top it off, she got me a professional-grade orbital polisher for buffing my Lightning and the ski. This isn't the Auto Zone special - I'm talking about one of those fancy professional rigs. I polished a small section of the ski yesterday, and I'm astonished at how beautiful it looks - like it's brand new. You just dont' realize how scratched/faded your paint and gel coat is until you buff it out a little.

    I must have been a good boy last year!

    Might be getting a new garage soon too - we're looking at a house on the near edge of Kingwood with a 3 1/2 car garage! That's all I care about, really, the rest of the house is hers.

    Sure it wasn't meant for someone else? You know some times mistakes happen.
