Get Greg to run the vacuum when he's not cooking, that's what I meant when I said to get Greg to help you.  :)  :laugh2:

 

Why do I have this funny feeling I'm going to get some warning points? :shok:

Jay invited me and a few racers over yesterday to play on the "Orange Crush" track..

The track is awesome and the room it's in is amazing. The house in general is amazing.

We all had a blast. I asked Jay if he would consider adopting me and I could live in the slot car room.

I think the track would be cool to have esses added as Jay suggested but either way I would like it regardless.

Thank you for the invite and great hospitality.


Test, test, test and go test some more.
You're never fast enough!!! 💯

Preparation leads to separation.

Luck is the residue of design.

Thanks for that, Danny! There was plenty of fender-to-fender rubbin'-is-racing in multiple impromptu mini-races with my Champion TurboFlex 4.5" "rental" cars. I know Doc Dougherty, Terry Tawney, and Greg Wells all enjoyed the racing as well as my wife's seven-layer dip. Of course there was a classic smoked sausage lunch with all the fixings, not to mention plenty of ice cold brewskis.  

A special thanks to Terry Tawney for the awesome chocolate chip and nut cookies that his wife made.

BTW... I plan to do at least one event like this each year so hopefully it will just get bigger and better every time.

Southern boys don't wear shoes unless it's really necessary, like when the snow is more than a foot deep.

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

With that crowd I'd say there was something else more than a foot deep by the time it was over. :shok:  :crazy:  :dance4:

After so many drinks they usually end up on the floor. At least at my house they do.  :laugh2:
