I mowed the yard yesterday….. If you can remember back far enough to the last time I mentioned mowing the yard… Well, I didn’t mow it then. That was what? A month ago. Well, I finally got ‘er done. Yup.
20 Years ago this weekend, Kenny Bernstein broke Drag Racings 300 MPH barrier when he got 301.70 MPH at the NHRA Gatornationals in Florida. I was there!
He still has the same racecar, always improving it. He says: “If you can spin your tires, you don’t have enough traction. You have to fix your traction problem. If you can’t spin you tires, you don’t have enough power, You gotta soup it up so you can get enough power”. Truer and more racerific words have never been spoken.
One of the things I miss most about the USA is going to the races with Rick, it was always a road trip and always a good time! Once we went to Pennsylvania and I pulled a camper trailer in my old Jeep Cherokee with the four cylinder engine! That Jeep was never the same! Once we drove down to Florida and he had to pull over every hundred yards so I could puke, One stop I rolled out of the car into an ant hill. I remember him laughing and people blowing their horns! I don’t miss those hangovers one bit!
There’s a video that shows them releasing the giant helium balloon HERE.
My wife and I, plus a lot of other people got emails from the email account associated with this blog.
I changed my password and hopefully that will eliminate the problem.
I usually don’t buy typical souvenirs. I was in the Maldives, and I bought a pair of dive booties. I did buy a t-shirt too, but I remember those dive booties and every time I wore them I’d remember the Maldives.
I was in Ohio, with my Mom, and we were at the store my Grandfather used to go to with me. I saw a shaving brush. I had just gotten a new one, so I didn’t get it, but I’ve been wishing I had ever since.
Last February, Costa Rica, I bought a toothbrush in the grocery store. Every morning and evening and whenever I brush my teeth, I think about the Costa Rica trip. I also bought a new pair of flip flops. In hindsight, I think the toothbrush is an excellent souvenir.
I think it’s a good idea to (sometimes on purpose) leave something you know you’ll need at home, so that you’ll have to buy a new one, then you may find it is the favorite thing that reminds you of your trip!
It has been good weather here, nice and cool in the shade and hot in the sun. Just how I like it!
I got to spend about a half hour on the beach yesterday.
The Wife and I are getting sick, we both have sore throats and there’s a cold going around. I wonder if new colds come, go around, then leave, or does the same cold go around and around over and over?
