I have decided that I would begin scanning all of my old family pictures, my old racing pictures and the newspaper articles into my computer. Today, I'm posting a some of my racing photographs as well. Some of the Miami area race car drivers went on to become national champions and were often seen racing on television. It's going to be a lengthy task, but at least I'll be able to save the memories and the images on my computer and later transfer the to DVDs.
It's Hump Day and I hope to be able to stop by AREA 51 to see my pals. I'm not completely sure if I'll go tonight as my left foot has been giving me problems from my last late night soiree. We'll see...

Picture Of The Day: It's a eclectic post today with my Everglades camping trip with the kids and some of my racing photos all mixed together. But as you know, I'm not one to always march to the same drumbeat as the others, so please excuse today's mess. There are many stories going through my mind as I make today's post, all stemming from finding the three pictures I posted this past Monday.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming:
One morning a woman and her baby were taking a bus. As she entered the bus the driver says, "Wow that is one ugly baby." The woman, deeply hurt, just continued on the bus and found a seat next to an elderly man. The man asks "What's wrong ma'am? You look mad." She replied "I am. That bus driver just insulted me."
The man replied, "You shouldn't take that from him. He's a public worker and should give you respect. If I was you, I would take down his badge number and report him. The woman says, "You're right sir I think I will report him." The elderly man says, "You go on up there and get his badge number and I'll hold your monkey for you."
