Springin’

It seems like the odd winter is almost done by the weather outside.  Some of the local gang have been moving about the country hitting up the big races and I couldn’t be prouder of their performances.  This year at the local races it’ll have a different feel as some different names start filling out the top five, but that’s a good change and it means good things for a new set of folks.

The Forward Motion and Missouri race seasons start around here and I’m busy preparing for it.  Speaking of springin’, back when I was a mechanic, I learned after a bit that no matter how many times you poo poo a Snap On™ wrench, sooner or later you’ll end up loving the feel of one and what it will do.  It wasn’t that I couldn’t get things done with some whoflung-you off brand, but having a tool that won’t slip off of a bolt head and leave you cursing a bleeding just makes sense and can make you money when you’re busy paying rent with your hands and tools.  Last year, I sprang for a new tool early in the season and it worked well.  There’s nothing like working off a (rather costly) dead horse to keep you hard at the grindstone, so this year I tried it again.  This hawg will be out and about in my bag this year and I hope that it helps me catch some of the shots that I have seen in my head, but often missed because my old tools just left me hangin’.
