I would mail all the gasoline in my SUV tank to NY if I could beat you in the final 3 races! Nationwide race is up.

Did anyone see Romney’s speech from somewhere in Iowa (I think) this forenoon? I was pleasantly surprised with whom I saw prominantly standing in the front row behind Mitt as he spoke.

None other than “The King” himself: Richard Petty, wearing one of his trade mark cowboy hats. Happy to see it!

Headed to TMS tomorrow after a year of missed races.

Wife is not well, taking my brother for his first race.

Over in Lewisville, just got back from the Saltgrass steakhouse.

Looks like the weather will hold and looking forward to a great time.

You are doing a good job sir! Especially from a past racer that raced in drag!

Thanks, nothing too serious, just under the weather.

Reminded of the joke about the woman at the Cowboys football game with the empty seat next to her, when asked about it, she replied all their friends and family were at his funeral.

I am here in spirit only as my ISP has a problem between the Modem and the pole in the street but it doesn’t effect my TV connection which runs off a splitter on my Teakwood desk?

It’s working because I have 3 metal coat hangers wired in series and I’ve got a connection through the CIA servers...

Everyone knows coat hangers should be wired in parallel. Bet you are using the plastic coat hangers aren’t you?
