4 days, but who's keeping track?

The Final Countdown is not only an annoying 80's pop/techno song that just won't go away, but also the phrase I'm coining these last 4 days in Uncle Sam's Finest Navy. Then I'll be leaving the Evergreen State in search of a new non-military life. No longer Joe Navy but Joe Schmoe. Sad story? Only time will tell..... On to more pleasant thoughts.......
This is my pal Charles the Woodcarver and his home-built carving tool sharpening station. He says, "Watch out for the guy who is always sharpening his knives, he may be on edge." He sharpened my whole knife collection for me Sunday and taught me the ins and outs of making a razor-like edge.
My new scissor jack and passenger pillion. Rides are 50 cents for the ladies but gentlemen you'll have to be content with watching from a safe distance.

You saw the damage done. Now here's the replacement stuff: Kuryakyn Laydown LED taillight, Custom Chrome Laydown license plate bracket, Giant Freakin 18" sissy bar (It could put an eye out), and that about covers it. Oh and I put the chrome heat shields on the Thunder Header after burning yet another hole in a perfectly good pair of jeans.
