Back in the saddle again...

The legislative powers of the Motor Vehicle Administration have sent more paperwork and 'what -not' for my perusal. Believe me, I understand that past behavior was not the right thing to do, I am sorry. This is just more than I had bargained for but as they say, "it is what it is." I hate that phrase but it's true. But today I'm working hard and all will work out for the best. Can't wait to be know, like a monkey on a Border Collie.

Nice tie little fella......

When life was simpler.....

The great "TV Tommy" Ivo. I meet this man in 1969 at Lakeland International Raceway, I-40 and Canada road, MEMPHIS....(say it real loud like a radio announcer). Gene Snow and Ivo showed me how to pack a drag chute correctly and I did on both cars. Not bad for a kid in 7th grade.
"Big Daddy" Don......enough said.

Owner Ray Godman and driver Preston Davis of the Tennessee "Bo-Weevil" from Memphis area. Dad meet the owner "back in the day" when dad found himself in a wheelchair after returning from Nam in '68. Owner is pictured in his chair next to pickup truck.

These cars were the best and nothing burns better than Nitro.
Remember....gas is for cleaning parts.

Cryptic Reference that Vance will understand.....

Tikki Tikki Tembo No Sarimbo Hari Kari Bushkie Perry Pem Do Hai Kai Pom Pom Nikki No Meeno Dom Barako

And that's all I'm going to say about that.

Also, two people have actually signed on as followers. WTF?!

Punxsutawney Vance's shawdow.....

'Lil Rickey Pilkerton was ready when Punxsutawney Vance came out of his hole today. The 4 year old loaded his .38 and put his boots on for the dramatic hunt. Grandma had stitched a new cap for the little chap just for this event.
Punxsutawney Vance emerged for his hole at 7:32 a.m. today and was promptly shot 3 times by little Rickey. Vance made one last wave to the crowd with is middle finger extended.
Rickey exclaimed, "got that groundhog wearing the Tyrolia ski jacket and Landscaping ball cap, fleece gloves and roaming in a pile of magnolia trees!" Rickey stood there and smiled.

Snow...and more snow

We had 12" snow here in Maryland on 1/30/10. The snow was suppose to start at 9:00am but started at 7:00. So, my dumb ass was out in the snow getting firewood for the stove in a fairly decent snow storm. This picture was taken 2 hours into the snowfall which continued until 9:00pm. I must say, the Stetson holds up under severe, not so well.

Now just hold on there pardner...

You do everything possible to get going in the right direction and you are thrown a curveball....everytime. The madness has to stop sometime. The Motor Vehical Administration is an agency that I do not understand, maybe I never will. Suffice to say, when you are in their grasp...they got ya by the short hairs. We should go back to horses and shit. Everyone should carry a gun, ride a horse and sleep on the ground. Then, when you wake up you are just so happy to be alive, you wouldn't have time to think of new ways to screw with peoples lives.

Not a sermon....just a thought.
