Excellent. You've certainly been through the ringer on this one, Eric!

Moreso for Jim, with his eye problem he is pedaling as fast as he can.

The car is now on the back burner, we have a 1948 20' Chris Craft Blondie in the shop for a full restore and we picked up the steel and wheels yesterday to build a cart so we can get it off of the trailer and roll it around.
Here are some pics, hull has been tuned and replugged and it is sanded down to raw mahogany and will be ready for stain and clear in a couple of weeks.
It is also the end of the boating season so a lot of boats to pull and winterize so hopefully a week in Dec. to flatbed the goat over and finish it up.
We just can't have any grease or oil around this puppy until it is all sealed up.

Well the tracking shows my engine delivered and signed for on Wed 10/21 but the shop was closed, gates locked and nobody there to sign for it.
I was in Mammoth fishing and didn't get in till yesterday to check the tracking.
Waiting on a call back from Freightquote to find out where the hell it was delivered.
This is bullshit!

I had a custom roll up door fabricated in Arizona to be truck-shipped to CA. When the guy stopped in Vegas overnight, tweekers stole the door off the back of his truck (16' wide/12' tall aluminum roll up!) and it was GONE. Had to wait another month for another door to be made and shipped. I hope you find your engine!

They probably sold it for scrap.

Working on it Jeremy from CVMS found who it was handed off to, MVE in Chino had it at 7:52 am this morning.
I believe it may have gone to Metro who does the bobtail deliveries up here on the mountain.
Still no call from Freightquote, waiting for a call back from Metro.
Apparently nobody knows how to input info into the computer system so garbage in garbage out.
It wasn't delivered it was signed for on Wed. @ the hub in Chino.

Update:

Called Metro, they have it and scheduled delivery is on 9/28.
Funny thing, my son had a dream about a month ago about this engine and said according to his dream it would arrive the day after my birthday and he nailed it.
Now I need to ask him to try and have a dream about lotto numbers.

Yeah, typo I meant 10/28 but with the tracking on this engine 9/28 isn't out of the question.
Hey it only took me 4 hours to find it and one sleepless night wondering who in Cedar Glen signed for my engine.
I remember when there was a time before computers when you talked to Michelle in S&R, she used a ledger and could tell you what you needed to know in 5 minutes.
Once I got these people to stop looking at their computers and look for the BOL and talk to Manuel out on the loading dock there it was.

I was in the check out line in a Home Depot when the power went out a few years back. It wasn't dark, but the cashiers were dumbfounded. Couldn't do anything, the way it was set-up. All electronic, no paper. And it's getting more and more like that. We are in a time similar to the 1880's-1900's, when electricity and autos started to become the new normal. Changed everything. We are slowly going paperless. In another 30 years, you won't be able to buy a pen. And if the power goes out, you'll have nothing at all to do and no idea of what to do, either. In 100 years, people won't even talk to each other anymore or have muscle tone from labor: they'll be autistic text-bots, living in cyber space on their little etch-a-sketch screens.....

We were told how computers would practically eliminate paper in our office and how much money we would save and now with ever changing state mandates we have had to lease an industrial size copier and use about 4 times as much paper as we did ten years ago.
If the power or Charter goes out everything stops and we send all our employees home.
