So, everything went well with Eileen's annual appointments. What we both like about the U of A Health Sciences Center is that, when out of town people come there for appointments, etc., and have medical tests done, the medical staff let the person know the outcome of the test/s BEFORE they leave the building. Is that amazing or what? At UNM Hospital, that's not the case and people end up making trip after trip there. For us, UNM Hospital, located in Albuquerque, NM, is a 4hr drive...one way. Tucson is 2.5hrs...one way. It was an easy choice, plus the staff, MDs, etc., are great. And Eileen gets into her appointment on time or early, if you can imagine that. Now, for me, having Eileen pass the annual medical tests, etc., with flying colors is what's important...to Eileen, too.
Ok, on to the Cannondale! Here are some photos:
|Steve Backenkeller did a fine job with the paint job, IMHO.|
|The frame and the fork...|
|This is what I want my completed Cannondale to look like sans fenders.|
|As you can see, depending on the light, the color of the frame is different.|
When the Cannondale is in operating condition, I'll be looking to increase my mileage in order to try some overnight or two night camping tours and have Eileen either join me on the ride or at camp. We'll see how it all progresses. I am happy...that Eileen is well and the Cannondale is almost ready to go.
Ok, a good tune to get out of this post with...two of my favs doing one of my favorite tunes.."Angel From Montgomery" written by John Prine and performed by Bonnie Raitt and John Prine.
