Being an employer for many years left me with the very unpopular habit of constantly repeating myself.

Hmmm... Since you are no longer 'an employer' and still seem to have this unpopular habit, it must be the 'many years' that was, and continues to be the cause.

Obviously, you've been talking to my wife.

My curiosity got the better of me, so I ordered a Cyclo, and it arrived a couple of days ago. My first impression is that it's very well made, and feels very nice in the hands. I'll post more about it after I start using it.

I also ordered that little 3" polisher from Griot's Garage. I like the idea of being able to get into tight places, which on a Smart is pretty much the whole car.

That reminds me, I've been wondering how you fit into that tiny little car?

Michael, that's not a problem at all. Ask anyone who has even sat in a Smart and they'll tell you that the room inside is amazing. It's so roomy that it is easy forget just how small the car is.

That is, until you find yourself sitting in traffic counting the lug nuts on a Peterbilt.
