hello everyone...
I know I have been non-existant the last couple of months, but I've been really busy, in a really great way!....

OMG! I HAD THE MOST AWESOME WEEKEND EVER!!!! I had about $600 worth of tickets hanging around my neck. We dont really have a CLUE the worth of the tickets, and were NOT about to ask!!! Me and Paul (the guy that I have been seeing for about 6 weeks) went w/ the company, and we were in the Sky boxes at Texas Motor Speedway! They had the Craftsman Truck races on Friday, and the INDY car races on Saturday! The sky boxes were AWESOME!!!! We ate like kings and queens, and they had an open bar. It was hotter than hell, but the boxes were GREAT! It was all thru a very good friend that Paul does business with. VERY COOL! The whole weekend was incredible!!! :thumbsup:

We got pit passes to go into the pits, and in the GARAGES! I got pics of the Indy cars!!!! Just got home a few hours ago, so I have not developed them yet. I got a shot of the INDY winner from this year in the garage,he did not finish this race, he crashed and burned... and few other of some of the cars and of some of them working on them..., . The Truck races were bad ass too! Saw a really bad accident or two, and AJ Foyt IV ended up crashing, and not finishing.

They had that RoboMonster thing there that was friggin' HUGE! it blew fire and ate cars! It crushed up a VW...(good choice) and a Cadillac, and another car it ate. It was soooo cool! This thing cost 2.5 mil to build, someone has waaay too much time and money on thier hands for this thing! But, it was REALLY neat!

Our Hotel was AWESOME!!! FULL KITCHEN, and the bed was like a play ground! lol.....It was huge! The company paid for EVERYTHING!!! Hotel, tickets, EVERYTHING!!!

We ended up driving the '04 Z06 up, cuz the weather was too iffy to fly his Bonanza to Dallas for the weekend. Good choice. Although, I would have loved to take the plane. I"ve really enjoyed flying in it, he even let me fly it! :cool: We took a different route home to avoid the contruction that we hit on the way up, and it took us about 380 miles to make a 250 mile ride home...but we enjoyed EVERY minute of it! We turned over 3000 miles on the Z06 on the way home, and it was a NICE RIDE!!! I came real close to buying a girly shirt at the races with a BOWTIE on it!!! (dont shoot me!) :rotf: I found Caitlin the things she was wanting me to buy for her, and bought her dad a Tshirt to thank him for Dogsitting Racie for me. It was just a really cool weekend. I will post up the pics on my webshots when I get them developed tomorrow....

We are gonna race in the Leukemia Regatta (Yachts) next Saturday and Sunday! I cant wait! I'll get pics then too.
Just wanted to check in and say hi.... I miss ya'll. Sherri, we will prolly take the cars out on Friday night, if you wanna come out. Let me know. ;)

Christine,

Who's the Z06 belong to??? They are great cars!! I wish my R was as light as a Z06. oh well, I suppose I would have to put it on a diet to get it that light.

Glad to hear you had a great time!

Hey ya'll..
sorry, I never got back. Still been real scarce on the boards. Or on the computer for that matter. Andy, the Z06 is Pauls. John, you have prolly seen him at our shows. He would show the ZR1, '93 I think. Red. He was at our Spring show.
Weve been having a great time and spend ALOT of time together. Its been wonderful. :D I have been very very happy... Hope to see ya'll real soon.... I will try to check the boards out sometime this week....
thanks guys. :)
