    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    Got the car out of storage two days ago. Washed and vacuumed the car out and took it for a drive to autozone to drop off some used oil (did an oil and filter change on the GFs R55 Clubman S today).

    Short list of things to do for spring so far:

    - schedule the recall work (going to call tomorrow to see if I can get in tomorrow or Tuesday)
    - contact BAV sound about getting a replacement speaker. When I bought the used set, I was told it was all in working order but after install there is a mid in the passenger front door that is blown.
    - oil/filter change
    - add some weather stripping to the rear tail lights

    Yeah, feels good to get back in the saddle.

    Recovery is good, I started back to work mid February after begging my ortho surgeon. It was healed up enough that he felt mostly ok with it. Since being back at work it’s been alright, the bone supposedly won’t fully grow back together until the end of this year. I wake up every morning with stiffness and some soreness but once I get some grease in it it’s fine. Scar healed up fairly well but it’s VERY noticeable and the plate the inserted is VERY noticeable under the skin. I’m hoping the stiffness and soreness will eventually subside later this year. My 85 pound female German shepherd stepped on my shoulder on accident two weeks ago and it caused pretty moderate pain for about 3-5 minutes. I’m hoping that goes away as well with time. I had to fight a guy at work last week who had a felony warrant for his arrest and with the assistance of another deputy we got him cuffed. Didn’t feel any soreness after that incident but if I took a direct impact on it I don’t think it would bode well.

    Appreciate you asking!

    Damn dude that recovery sounds rough. Glad you survived the boredom of not working + physically unable to work on the car!

    2 weeks after surgery I started legit losing track of what day it was. Knew it was time to go back to work at that point. Worked light duty at the front desk for 3 months before I had the itch to start back

    Yeah, I have no idea how to post pictures from Flickr on my phone. Insanely aggravating, thanks photobucket!
