An Update From The PC...

...Because I don't have the iBook with me today. I know, Excuses, Excuses, dammit. In my fit of craziness which involved satisfying my severe case of "Ragtop Fever," I left my iBook at Clay's house last night. I'm sure he'll bring it to me this afternoon -- I don't have the software or the files to do a twentycarlo.com update from this PC. Ah, but through the use-it-anywere magic of Blogger, I can put my mild little update here!

'Twas a reasonable weekend in spite of the anxious feelings in regard to finding a voicemail from the Dr's office Friday evening when it was too late to call back. Saturday night was a decent night of racing, even though we didn't get to stay for the Fireworks -- nothin' tore up, no crashes -- but don't think I didn't try. Good Gawd, that 6 car was as wide as the track; he went in high every time and was back to the edge of the infield before he'd even made it to the straightaway every time. Every. Time. I kept tryin' to get up there to where he'd have to let-up of take a passenger door, but I just couldn't ever quite get up there enough to bet in the gap and get by; and yeah, I do wish I had just a little more car. I couldn't get by honestly, but Russell made it by with a hallelujah-holy-shit pass through the infield, cut turn four by two tires and managed to get by, it was a hell of a show from where I was and I still wish I could've followed him through there but it didn't work out.

Yesterday we took the little white Merc out to ride around some, drove it out to Mounds to play in the pool -- and I'm soooo not gonna put it back 'til they scream and gripe and make me put it up. Ah, summertime... Ah, Ragtop Fever!!

Oh, and I'm watchin' the mailbox... I'll be sure to write about that (and post pictures) when it gets here. ;)
