Happy birthday to me!!!

Today is the big 33, and as a gift I received.... the R60 title!

Apparently my wife kept bugging her mom to keep looking for it so they could surprise me with it for my birthday. They finally did find it late last week and gave it to me (along with a really cool R/C boat) for my birthday tonight.

I had already started looking into the procedure for filing for a lost title posthumously, but luckily I don't have to worry about that now. Now I just need to get the electrics worked out (I'm thinking a fried diode board, from my initial, very rudimentary investigation), and then start slapping in new engine gaskets everywhere.

It was a great ending to good day - and a jolt of motivation to get moving again!
