Buco Horsehide Finale

Finally got together with Eileen The Slipper lady. She came highly recommended as the person to repair the zipper on Pop's old jacket. Tina and I took a ride out to her workshop in East Heroin. Eilen is a free sprirt of a person, kind of a blend between hippie and Indian mystic. She has a Yamaha Special 650 and brings it along with her when she does the show circuit, setting up her leather tent at bike rallies.
She had the jacket done in a week and at the price she quoted. She also went above and beyond by fixing a couple torn seams and hand stiching the wool liner back into usable shape. You don't see good service like that anywhere these days.

I gave the jacket back to Pops today. he put it on, well almost. It didn't fit, but for a few moments this morning, he was a rough and tumble teenage delinquent again.
