Indianapolis 500 2010 - Mike Conway final lap crash

This accident, if you haven't seen it, happening between turns three and four on the last lap of this year's Indy 500. I was sitting in turn three and just happened to see it when Conway's car hit the fence. Amazingly he escaped with only a broken leg.

Waiting on my ride to go see the Indy Racing League's premier event, the Indianapolis 500. Hoping it's over in time to head back home and watch the majority of the Nascar Spring Cup Coca Cola 600 from Lowes Motor Speedway in Charlotte.

It has been 40 years since I last attended an Indy 500 and I'm really looking forward to seeing it live. I am NOT looking forward to the crowd, the unruly drunks and the near 90 degree temps sitting in the hot sun in turn 3, but hey, that is the price you sometimes have to pay.

Here's hoping for a safe and very competitive race!

Oh, and yeah, maybe a cold beer or two!

Two and A Half

Sometimes the voices from the past begin speaking again.

It's always good to know they still can!


Will you meet me on this side of Forever
Or shall we rendevous just south of Destiny?
Sometimes the things we want
Are the things that aren't meant to be,
Regardless how badly we both want them.
The physical part of me stands here,
In this world,
While another part of me continues
To hang out
Yet never being fulfilled.

Just this side of Forever...

Never Enough Time

Sometimes life needs to slow down a bit. Other than the couple or three five mile walks I take each week, I haven't had a lot of time to myself lately.

Work responsibilities, the possibility of clerks being cut in our office(yes, I could be as well,) the alpaca farm work and my responsibilites with the concert series, I do have a bit of time tomorrow, although it will be hectic.

For the first time in 40 years, I get to go to the Indy 500, thanks to my brother in law Jerry who gave me two tickets. Jerry is in Atlanta and couldn't make it, but thanks to his generosity, my friend John and I are heading to the 500.

I do believe I'll be receiving a visit from Coors Light and if all works out and the traffic permits, John and I should be back here tomorrow evening with most of the Coca Cola 600 to watch on TV.

Apologies to my Faithful Few for not having written anything lately, but with all that's been going on, this part of my life has been shoved onto a back burner.

Hope to do better in the future.

Thanks for hanging in there.
