New Year, hey I'm blogging. . .
There is so much going on in the Frances workshop!
The batch of 10 cargo bikes is nearing completion with the first 3 headed off to paint this week, kickstands and all. Behind schedule, but awesome. I am turning up my work time, getting support from Ann, my Mom and friends with Greta child care and doing my best to get ready for NAHBS end of Februaury: trailers, bikes, cargo bikes. I will even have a bike in the Velo Orange booth modeling a VO build-up!
In sad news, we lost our long-time shop and yard duck, Piglet. I once read that the leading cause of death for ducks was ingesting hardware etc- This made me worry for Piglet being someone who produces a lot of small sharp metal. But she made it well over a decade (her age is in dispute) and was a wonderful companion. In the end I was home just 30 minutes after dusk and she was no-where to be found- I searched high and low. No trail of feathers, nothing. We loved her so much.
