Last year I came across an excellent list of blog entries where people apologize for not writing more. Here I am "with hats in hand, bended knees" as little carmine said on the Sopranos episode tonight, being that guy. I had intended to drop some words here earlier, but then I got caught up in an afternoon's worth of adventure, trying to get the dented rear wheel off of my Vespa and replace it with another. I have a very nonstandard exhaust and that's getting in the way of getting the wheel off. It's starting to feel like it might be worth it to drop it off at the shop and have them do it. They can put it on one of those raisable platforms and get at it from there. Me and Andy, a friend from the neighborhood and scooter shop person, made do with a milk crate and various objects designed to keep things on the level while we took the rear shock off. That much worked, but it proved too difficult to get at the bolt we need to get to in order to get the exhaust off and then the wheel.
I think Twitter is stealing my Vox mojo. But I want it back. I want to be able to do both consistently. Gonna see what I can do about that. Any suggestions?
