|Earth Time with Cheryl, Beer, and Deep Fried Mushrooms!|
|With plenty of Relaxation.|
Cheryl and I have been hitting the rail pretty hard these last couple of days.
|Coming through Wellman Iowa. Soon!|
|Train of Bikes.|
|Riding in the heat|
|Cheryl suits up.|
In the mean time, 15 miles a day! Plus any bonus running Cheryl can pull off in this heat. Some people might not find that very "relaxing", But we seem to. Call us crazy!
|While staying in the shade.|
|Let's fry up those Mushrooms!|
|Cheryl is excited.|
|The first round! Trumpets!|
Beer battered anything is awesome enough. But the mix of mushrooms was delicious! Add in that we washed it down with a summer Ale.
|Trumpets and Buttons. Mmmm Good!|
|Why not eat them outside?|
Keeping with the Bike riding theme, Cheryl selected the Long Ride from Confluence. Light and refreshing as every summer beer should be. Whether mowing the lawn or laying outside and enjoying deep fried mushrooms, the pairing was excellent.
|With some Biking Beer!|
|Good color, Very Refreshing.|
|Let's fix these dings.|
|Sanding down the holes.|
There were even a few holes on the roof! Better get those before they become serious!
|Grinding out the rust with Dremel.|
|Even a ding up on the roof!|
|Subie take a Beating from Iowa Gravel.|
|Primer it up.|
|Sand it smooth.|
|Now add paint.|
I keep telling myself that "perfection" is not really the goal here. I'm very happy with "slightly better than good enough"! Where ever that falls on the "quality scale".
|Sanding it down again.|
|Three coats for protection.|
As long as there are no visible signs of rust, no serious paint flaws... I will be happy. I know the job will probably only last a year or two, but why not have Subie look his best for as long as he can?
|I think you can see the paint difference.|
|And now, Clear Coat!|
|Hiro and Cheryl reading together.|
So that is all for now. Pearson begins tomorrow and we will be back at it for another week or two. I was happy to get this far with the body work on the Subaru. I may have to wait even longer before taking on that large dent in the front passenger side.
In the mean time, Cheryl reclines and reads her Magazine with the cat. Hiro has been enchanted with Cheryl's latest hobby, String Art jewelry! Perhaps I will blog about that when I have more time and pictures. Thanks for stopping in.
