LOL - I went all right Jan!

The host & hostess are karaoke friends but I had never been to their home. It is like a dream place! It has a floating (wooden) staircase leading to a loft overlooking the 1,200 square foot living room and an 8' wide (or so) fieldstone fireplace, windows everywhere including a view of the completely fenced back yard and pool accented by the 3 sided pool house including bar and potty. With everyone ohhing and ahhing, they told the story - they bought it at tax sale. Seems it was built as a party house by a drug dealer who got busted! When they bought it, almost everything had been stolen out of the place, windows all broken. They are contractors so did all the work themselves but, in hindsight, they said they should have torn the house down and rebuilt around the fireplace! It became a money pit.

We had our favorite karaoke DJs and probably the nicest gang of folks ever gathered for a party - youngest was about 7 (and she sang), lots of teens who also sang... the acoustics in that place were amazing... just a lovely time except that one of our gang is moving away *sniff*

Yes M'am, we rocked last night!

Hi All,

Yeah, I know the race is over and this thread is history! Had a going away party last night for a very dear friend and... hmm, let's say I didn't follow the SP rules! (Methinks that the hostess did not use sugarfree Jello in those Jello shots!) Slept in late for me and then got a call that we were having brunch! So, I dragged my sorry butt and sore but happy dancing legs out for a couple hours! Got home in time for the green flag - no time or energy to sneak in here or even make snacks!

Missed Carl's interview, but things may have been a bit different if they'd had a Lap 10 caution! Lucked out in our pool though - had drawn #14 (Carl) and won $25!!!

Hope that I can chime in next week but think I said that LAST WEEK! lol

Hope you all have a boogity week!

Got called in to work and just got home. Turned on the TV & caught the last of the news. Did I hear right? Don't tell me that Shrub won again? No, I can't take it - - somebody shoot me and put me out of my misery. LOL From your posts it was one of those yawn - yawn - sleep - sleep kind of races. My computer went haywire last nite and it took me forever to get online today.

Poor Carl - forcing the smile...and what a smile. I am a diehard Edhead.

As for the guy on the bike, it's Darwinism at it's best. Now, if it had happened in SC he wouldn't have been wearing a helmet and Amanda would have gotten back to the station sooner. OK, poor taste, but really....

He had leathers which saved him from that but he probably has internal bleeding. Did I mention the fence? Yeah there was a fence involved, too.

The funny part is the owner of the farm was out bush hogging and totally missed the motorcycle and state trooper coming onto his property so by the time he had driven the huge circle around the field we were there and he was like "WTF is going on?!?"

I guess you can tell my ornery side has come out today....

I typically can't wait for the FOX guys to cover the races. But now.... especially after today... I can't wait until they leave. I'm a little tired of their lovefest on Shrub. I swear, I think they should all just have a group hug and french kiss after the race and get it over with. Jeepers crow. I have to mute it every time I see them focus on him anymore - can't take it. Yikes. OHHHHHH there they go again!

Amanda, the only thing you have really missed was the big one at the start of the race. The rest has been pretty boring.

Angie, those Honda's are pretty nice and quiet too. I couldn't touch one of those though. I had to have an electric start and Honda's was just out of my range. BTW, I meant to ask you...are you pulling for Shrub (yawn) this year since he is Tony's team mate now? Please tell me you aren't.

I think it is time to give Digger the air rifle again to blow a few tires out on Shrub.

We have a 34' 5th wheel. It has plenty of room for us and the kids. Their bunk house and our master bedroom are on opposite sides of the trailer, which makes sleeping great since we generally go to bed much later then they do at MIS. At home, we usually go much earlier than them. *lol*
We also have a honda 3000. It's nice and quiet and very fuel efficient if we don't use the air. Generally we only use it for coffee in the morning and for the air conditioner when needed, which was all night long last year at the June race. The August race at MIS is usually not as hot.

Do you have a motorhome or a pull a long? What kind of generator do you have? I have a brand new electric start...can't remember the brand name though. Maybe a Troy Built. It gets a lot better gas time than my old one did. I usually start it in the evenings on "TV nights" and then turn it off after my coffee is made the next morning. I didn't have to run the A/C more than one night, if that, at LMS. It was cooling down nicely in the evenings into the 40-50's...good sleeping weather.

That must be nice. I wish we lived a bit closer to a nascar track, but at least we're closer than most of the Canadians.

I also mis-spoke earlier. It takes about 4 gals per day on the generator if we use the air consistently. We got by last weekend on less than 5 gals for a 3 night stay. But, like I said, Michigan has had a cold spring. Hopefully it is cool in June, but I highly doubt it. Last year it was HOT!

I've never been crazy about drag racing, but who knows, I could change my mind. It has been many years since I went to a drag strip.

Yeah, it does add up at the track camping. Plus it takes at least $100 to fill up my truck. Thankfully living close to LMS, that is not as much an issue. I can go to LMS and back on half a tank of gas.

I didn't realize it got so expensive to camp at the track.

I can't wait for the drag strip to open up here at LMS. I've never been to a drag race. I figure if I'm going to hear the engines in my backyard I may as well go see what it's all about!

Hey again

Sorry I disappeared - phone call got in the way and then made some turkey noodle soup since DH is not feeling well.

Jan - so good to hear you are able to go camping this year. We went for the first time last weekend and absolutely loved it! MIS will be our second trip this year. It is 250 miles away and is a splurge for us. We can get 12.5 MPG if we go 61 MPH vs about 9 MPG if we go 71 MPG. Needless to say, we will be taking our time. As for our generator, we usually use about 5 gal. per race weekend. It's not too bad since we use the air conditioner. But since it's been such a cool spring, maybe it won't be as necessary to use it this year.

Hi Chris and Deb - Thank you all for the condolences on our dog. She was just like a member of our family and was as old as my oldest son. It's tough to get thru, but it IS getting better every day. I appeciate the kind words.

You know, I have to run mine at night because of the BIPAP machine. I went through 5 gallons a day at LMS so 25 or a little more for me. And I didn't run it hardly at all during the daytime even when it was hot. I just got outside and tried ot stay in the shade or left and did shopping where it was cool. That may not seem like much, but when you add the $100 to camp ( and that is essentially just a parking place), the cost of water, the cost to have your camper dumped if the waste tanks fill up during the week, groceries, gas for you tow vehicle...it just all adds up really quick.

Awww, you know what bites? So I saw the advertisement about ampenergy.com and the "ride with Junior" program. So I went to check it out (naturally, haha), and here's the kicker; you have to actually BUY Amp products and enter some code on the bottom of a can that you bought to sign up. I don't buy that crap. First off, I don't drink caffeine anymore anyway - haven't for years. But I definitely don't even let the kids drink any of those energy drinks. He he, now, I had NO problem buying Bud Lights, lol. But I won't resort to buying even one can of that stuff just to sign up to have my name on his car.

Wahhhhhhhhhhh!

I think attendance is down mostly due to gas prices. I know I sweated it out this last time at LMS and I am definitely going to have to plan ahead for the fall race. It is not the gas to get there but the gas for the generators that is killing a lot of people.

Hi Angie. Nice to meet you. So sorry to hear about your pup. They truly are family members. I had to wait a year after our lab passed on. Just recently got a black beagle/lab mix and she's wonderful. She looks exactly like a 12-14 week old lab pup and she'll never get any bigger!

MIS is an awesome track. I was there this past fall - loved it.

Oh and is that Carl up in the lead???? Go Carl!

Well, hellooooo Angie! :) Good to "see" you around! Sorry about your dog; that is tough. Hope everything else is going well. I thought about going to MIS this year, but not looking like that is going to happen. My son has a basketball tourney at the Wisconsin Dells June 22 - 25, so it looks like that will be my little vacation this year.

Jan, I agree with you about Bruton and France. Are they having problems filling Dover or something? I mean, I'm sure they have more empty seats everywhere this year (or the last couple), but that's probably just a combination of frustration with NASCAR period and $$$$. I thought I read somewhere about how ratings for the races have gone up... well no duh, since more people are probably at home watching instead of going. :)

I'm sorry about your dog...that is so hard to go through.

Angie is finally on a fire dept team...so I don't know if she is going to take off for the race or not. She has been really up with that and staying pretty busy with her training

I went to Martinsville and LMS...took a week off at the beach too. So just a lot of camping. Going to another campground not too far away the 3rd week in June. Staying close to home with the gas prices. How far away is MIS for you?

I know she was bummed about not going last year but I'm not sure if she goes every year or not.

Actually, our 13 year old house beagle just died last week, so things have been grim around here, but we're getting thru it. I MUST go find a beagle puppy when we get back from MIS since the house is just too darned quiet now. I have to wait til after the race since they don't allow dogs there. I've found a shelter about 100 miles away that has 5 pups up for adoption....I hope there's at least one left by the time we get back.

Probably more info than you wanted. Sorry bout that.

What have you been up to?

I've gotten a few more things done in my room. I can at least use my bed now...LOL...which I might just do in a few minutes and watch the race with my feet up.

Bruton is determined to get a race date in Kentucky...he is willing to do anything to get that. I almost can say it is time that both Bruton and the France family get out of the Nascar business. Hhhmmmm, maybe they should put DW and Tony Stewart in charge...LOL...that would be interesting.

Hey Jan and Deb

I know, it's been a while.....

Sarcastic Tony? Ahhhhh yes, there he is. I actually covered my mouth and looked at DH like "I can't believe he just said that about Elliot".:o
He's entertaining for sure!
We went to a radio station function last night to get VIP tickets to the June race. We didn't get em but DS got a t-shirt and he was happy.
Anyone else going to the MIS race in June?

Angie

Well that just figures. No, I haven't seen that article yet. I can't see moving another race to Vegas. Don't think that'd be such a good move. I think Bruton likes to be in the news. :)

Ugh - I'm kinda bored with the race, now that Junior is 10 laps out... and yet I can't tear myself away! lol

Did you read all the hub-bub about Bruton Smith possibly buying Dover Speedway? The rest of the rumor is that he'd then maybe move one of the races to Vegas or KY and leave Dover with only one race/year. It's on NASCAR.com...

LOL - humble? no. Sarcastic? Yes. But he did seem a little dejected... maybe he's still mourning giving up his monkey.

I did have to laugh when I saw Richard out there hammering the sheet metal. I'm sure that was, indeed, working out frustrations! Woohoo!

"Poor Tony"??? I didn't see the interview, but I've never thought of Tony as humble. But hey, lots of folks think Carl is antagonistic and I don't see that either! :-)

I don't BLAME Denny... but don't you think he could have slowed down a bit more, as well as the guys behind him? I mean, he was FLYING in there. Spotters screwed up if you asked me, but the guys should have been able to see something. But I'd have my spotters' butt, that's for sure....

So - are we all out of the challenge now?? hahaha

OK, I take it back...I'm sorry Denny...that actually sounded like the old Denny in the interview.

Poor Tony, anytime anything happens, he just goes ahead and says it is his fault...LOL...even when it is no way it was.

It is just a shame that many good cars were damaged this early in the race.

Yeah - I don't blame Denny for that. His spotter was asleep or something. Atleast David squeezed by unscathed.

Ribs and potato salad and baked beans are made and served. Some others are offering Angus burgers, I hear. Grab a plate and a chair, kick back and get ready to go racing!
