Well, I finally got up the energy to actually clear a path out of the garage and crank up the Champ and drive it. I am embarrassed to admit that it has been almost 6 month since I had driven the old thing. Fired right up, ran like a top. Had a good time driving it around the back roads. We cruised along for about 20 miles or so. Boy, did that feel good! I don't know if I'm doing better so I felt good doing something I like doing or if doing something I like doing made me feel good. Either way I had a smile on my face this afternoon!

Next maybe an oil change and a bath. (For the truck, I don't need either yet!)
