Today was the first day of Spring. I called a customer known as Al Jazeera the Iranian mobster to collect on an unpaid sum. He said it was Persian New Year and he would have to call me back later. I thought it was a lame excuse, which it was, but as it turns out, it really is Persian New Year. You learn something new each day.
We decided to clean up the shop since it was unbearably slow today. We found all sorts of stuff we had given up hope of ever finding again. We loaded up about 500 pounds of dead batteries and 20 gallons of waste motor oil to recycle. I drained the turtle tank and refilled it. Kent organized the bikes waiting for repair in order of priority. We cleaned off the counters and began organizing the tools and equipment. So far so good.
