    70’s today and I am taking the Boss out, the good news. Track night at Blackhawk. 95% chance of thunderstorms during event, the bad news.
    I guess I’ll have to save the money from Track night and spend it on the mustang round up. No weddings planned for this year.

    Yea.......except for the rain.
    Why is it that we have drought like conditions up to the day before my first track event?
    Does the weather God drive a Yugo?

    Tyme, My Boss gets exercise all year long as long as the weather's ok and the roads are dry. Glad to hear you got yours out for a jaunt! Happy to be rid of those summer Pirellis that turned to hockey pucks in cold weather, I know , they're made for track grip, which doesn't pertain to me.Love my new Continental Extreme all seasons! On the Race front, Harvick gets win #4 with Clint Bowyer a close second at Dover after a 40 plus minute rain delay.Supposed to have rain here today, but nothing yet.

    That poor parked Mustang didn't stand a chance, But with the article mentioning slowly moving lava, Camaros might have a better shot.......

    My cousin, that I haven't seen for a couple of yrs, stopped by the other day.He was very intrigued by my Boss and insisted we go for a ride.He had a '67 Goat back in the day with a 389 & 411 gears. After our ride he confessed his GTO probably wouldn't give the Boss much of a fight. He did say his GTO would have killed my 442...so i guess we're even...;).......nice day spent with family is priceless!

    Rick, That's easy practice! I'll be retired 3 yrs the end of June and don't regret a minute of it. The secret is to have a game plan to keep you occupied when you're off....cars, sports, yard work, the list goes on...there's always something to do! If you enjoy your job , stay as long as you want! If not leave when you can to stay happy and healthy.

    Was watching Seinfeld episodes today and saw "Jerkstore" mentioned by George. Now I know where one of our members got that term from to use as his handle. Can you picture George smiling??????????..............

    Lot of mayhem came by yesterday about 5pm when a strong weather front came thru! The sky darkened, very strong winds and heavy rain with strong thunder and lightning. Many towns lost power, many trees uprooted or split in half (tornado?) flooding, you name it! The Boss (I) was hoping things would calm down!!! Showers today...next nice day maybe not til next week...............

    NWS confirmed today 2 tornadoes came thru Ct yesterday. Lotta places still without power, many houses damaged from uprooted or snapped in half trees.Sleeping Giant, a state park in Hamden is closed til further notice. Its pristine state forest has been reduced to rubble.One poor guy was working in his back yard when the storm hit and ran to his truck for shelter only to have a tree come down and kill him when it crushed the truck.........sad............

    Well. The deal was made...Drove home yesterday in a '17 Nissan Juke Auto. Strangest looking vehicle I ever saw, But it's her new pride and joy. As I said before, A happy wife is a happy life and vice versa! The Boss has nothing to worry about..It isn't going anywhere no tyme soon!!!
