Friends,

I just picked this up. I've been dying for the past several days in anticipation.

I'm so excited, happy, ecstatic, etc that I'm shaking in my chair right now.

I almost had a wee accident, it's that bad!

I could have a heart attack today; it might even be ok.

I had to dip into the "dire needs" stash to get this, to say the least... and it's safe to say that yours truly isn't buying any frames any time soon (don't worry, I'm still on the never-ending prowl for parts) :wink:

This is how she looks today. She will be wearing some slightly difference clothes soon...

I just wanted to share the excitement with you, my good friends and partners in crime, since only you all would know the feeling. I haven't cried since my daughter was born... but I cried today, I'll admit it. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Well, without further ado, here she is!

...JOY!!!

Thanks mate...!

Yes, the pic quality is way poor. And in my excitement to snap a photo for posterity, I didn't even clear the odd bikes behind it! :lol:

Here's another... still poor but a bit better. Certainly captures the "bathing in light" feeling I have at the moment!!!
