Well I just wanted to say hi again after about a year hiatus. Last year about this time I was medically retired from the USAF and had to stop brewing and drinking simply because as a family of 5 living on strictly a VA payment did not allow for the extras like brewing or drinking. We gave up everything that was not essential to keeping the family together while we were getting our lives straight. Well it seems like everything is starting to work out. I was able to sell my truck get an old commuter car 1993 type
and a old Yamaha Venture 1983 type
I am in School at Devry for Network Admin. The VA finally started to pay me correctly and I am now being paid to go to school so we are back to making a living as apposed to just living.
My wife decided I needed to start my projects up, so I have brewed a smoked porter kit and a lager kit that I received for Christmas. I have also torn my bike down and have done an overhaul on it. The motor is real strong but the bike was not real good looking. Give it another month and it will be a real good looking copper with metallic flake. I have been sanding and filling the fairings for about 3 weeks and now I have to wait to buy the color until about the 1st at least I have a cornie of smoked porter to enjoy while I wait.
