Default Happy New Year Guys and Gals

Here's wishing everyone a happy healthy and prosperous 2013.

I'm here at work, slaving away as usual keeping the buildings nice and warm. I did ride my bike in at 0 Dark Thirty but with temps in the upper 20's and freezing fog everywhere it was a pretty dicey maneuver and I should have known better. Did a slip-n-slide or two but owing to the Harley's low center of gravity, long wheelbase and of course my Mad Skilz as a rider it was no reason to get excited.

Now here I am warm and toasty sipping tea and listening to the soothing rumble of gas burners, high pressure steam and feedwater in the lines, the subtle whirr of feedwater and condensate pumps....Kinda' gives me the warm-n-fuzzies just to think about it LOL!

"Here's wishing everyone a happy healthy and prosperous 2013."

Ditto what the good man in the PNW said!

They say you should be doing what you WANT to do in the coming New Year when the clock rolls-over, as an omen to how the year will go for you. Typically, I would go for a Midnight Ride; take a 100+ blast down a familiar back road, be kissing my Wife, something Pleasant.

THIS year, I was 40' in the air; astraddle a conveyor, fixing a broken drag-chain, and smashing the shyte outta my left thumb. I took a couple of nasty pics of it, after I got done (can't just stop 'cuz of a l'il "Blood Sacrifice" - not when it's such a huge PITA to get my fat arse up there).

I sure hope not. I was peeing in a plastic urinal I took home from the hospital so I wouldn't have to crutch into the bathroom in the middle of the night. However, I made a resolution to focus on what's good and right this year, and not sweat the crap I can't control anyway. On Monday I'll see the Dr. and find out if I can start exercising the leg and get back on 2 feet. I'm betting he'll give me a "Go."

Best wishes to all of you in 2013!

Well someones gotta' do it... might as well be you. I've worked more holidays than I've ever had off, given plenty of Blood Sacrifices to The Machine as well, nature O' the beast I'm afraid.
