productivity currently lacking.......


man, do i feel sucky. i lost my voice pretty good at the bike show, flew across the country in germ tubes, then got a mild cold. i took a couple days off feeling i would come around and tried to concentrate on office work and streamlining the buisness so as to save time. i faced and chased and prepped keri's new bike {and let it get out the door without taking a picture of it all stickered and headbadged, but here's a "fresh outta the box" photo} and sent it out the door and bent, mitered and slotted the seat stays for cameron's new bike......only too find i cut them short. really short. into the recycling bin short. sucky. there's alot of time into those. soooo.......i cut all four pieces of a new set, brazed them together, talked to PVB about his 2nd coconino frme coming up next, and drew up the blueprint. 6:30pm. got some work done, replied to about six e-mails about parts groups {very organised on my new parts spreadsheets, thank you} and went to bed expecting to get up all chipper and brighteyed. wrong. i feel like shit. worse then before. it pains me to type this. green stuff is coming out of my head, my whole body hurts, and i can't talk. and here i was kicking ass on febuary's build list......there is a lesson in this however. it shows why it is so difficult to try and tell someone nine months in advance {i'm filling up october build slots right now} when exactly their frame will be done. i thought the bike i'm STILL working on would be happily at paint right now. not languishing in my jig. oh well - moan moan moan. soon to be back in action..... steve.
