Hitting the Road

If you have noticed that I haven't been blogging much this past week or so, you'd be right. I've been up to my gills in another writing project, and, since I am at base a monomaniac, I'm lucky if I can do one piece and still put dinner on the table. And it doesn't help at all that I write very, very, slowly. So I've been neglecting this thing, and I am sorry for that.

The good news is that I'm heading out tomorrow with my son and couple of to play motorhead at NASCARRRRRRRRRRRRRRR for the weekend. We goin' be camping and eating garbage (I'm not too happy about that, but WTF.) and doing our best to keep the kids from having to look at those women who I hear seem obsessed with offering their services as wet-nurses. But apart from that, I'm looking forward to it :-)

I haven't been to any kind of race since 1974 when I spent the day with my high school buddy, Big Steve at a motorcross race in West Virginia. And I haven't been to a NASCAR race since before they were calling it NASCAR in the late '60s

Maybe they were calling it that, but how would I know? It was after all the 60's. Come to think of it maybe it wasn't even a car race...

See you next week ( fate willing) probably deafer, dumber but hopefully a bit wiser.

How far south you goin' for the race?

I guess I should know, if I kept up with the races...

Back in tha say, when I was burned out of Restaurant and decided to cover the 'beverage' world, I worked for a distributor of Budweiser in Huntsville Alabama.

They gave me a suburb and two smaller cities/towns outside of Huntsville...come racing season and Talladega time, they made me a rich man AND I sold all the beer I was gonna sell by thursday because everyone had packed up and left by thursday night or friday!

Ahhh, the good old days...(of being semi-rich around racing season) Thank You Nascar!
