What I want:

Phone stuff: iPhone Peak Design case, wallet, and car mount

Still looking at espresso stuff, but putting it on hold.

Also looking for 4.3L V6 intake, exhaust and tune. Perhaps rhino liner for the bed. But all that will run about $2,000 and I just don’t have it right now.

What I got:

2021 Chevy Silverado (v6 4.3l) _ color: Shadow Gray Metallic

(My 2014 F150 (v8) developed the death wobble, and after a few close calls, I traded it in. I have way too much travel in the next 3 months hauling trailers to deal with it.)

Naturally, this is a huge purchase and I just threw money at the problem rather than shopping around. I also immediately purchased a bed cover and interior storage under the back seat ($1000). Little things like getting it registered cost $250 and a license plate cost. Insurance also went up by about $100 per month.

What I produced:

Art Stuff

One more old-school drawing

Life Stuff

Remained in Birmingham for about three weeks. LEaving for Chattanooga today for the Stoveworks art residency, then in mid-February, back to Princeton, TX to collect my things and bring them back to Birmingham.
