    New shoes! Sweet! Glad the brakes are working. They should get better the more you drive and the brake shoes settle in. Not your walking shoes. They do get better the more you walk in them.

    I liken my no power steering Buick to wrestling a gorilla. It can be a chore in a parking situation. Once on the road I enjoy the road feel of non-powered steering.

    Three on the tree is something everyone should experience.

    Congrats, sounds like you are making good progress. I remember some film or something where they demonstrate how to park with the big steering wheel. It was left hand over, then right hand "underhand" to exert the most force to pull on the steering wheel. Ha ha, almost like some weight lifting training exercise. But it does work!
