Mornin' all! A tick better this morning, I think we may stay under 90 today, and get below 70 tonight. I'm glad I work inside, and feel for those who have to work outside in this heat and humidity.

1258, that stinks. Severance is nice, but a secure paycheck is nicer. Companies always look to cut expenses, do more with less people, never mind the stress it puts on the people left behind.

Chris, I'm with you, in that I don't like it this hot. I'm good with temps in the 70s, and it should be warmer in the summer, but I don't want to feel like I opened the over door when I step out of the house. Red Face

Fern, that is impressive, 10 rounds with no bye. That is a helluva day. Hopefully the weather cooperates this weekend, and you'll hear me Friday and Saturday on Motormania.

You all have a great day!

Mornin' all! Over center day! Felt a bit more normal of a summer morning out there today, not as oppressive as it's been.

Fern, I wouldn't be over it either. That's awesome. I'm hoping to have a laptop in the tower with me so I can at least see who is online and give some shout outs. Stay careful out there in that heat.

You all have a great day!

Da--MN RED----Heat don't bother me much as I kind of got used to it as a kid living out there where you do. We didn't have all this high end A/C in everything back then----our church didn't even have A/C and our house had a cooler----you know what that is? I just took the race car out of the trailer and put it in the garage. Capitol said I dripped oil when I was there but can't find any signs of it.....I'll check you out Chuck

Fern I believe the reason I had a problem was the blood letting... LOL
My blood pressure was 120/62 before and 105/58 after them draining that 500cc of the red stuff... and that with the 104 temp combined with a 1/2 mile walk back to the dully (all uphill) lead to my minor heat stroke.... only took a few hours to get back to my old self....

Mornin Y'all,
It's still hot out here on the left coast. I seem to remember is was just like this last year. Funny, it only seems to happen in the summer.
As some of you might remember I put my trailer up for sale a while back. I've been conversing back and forth with some circle jerk guys from up north and they want to come pick it up Friday. I said that ain't goin to happen. That don't give me enough time to get it unloaded. It's still all loaded from the last race last year. But if they want to help with the unloading and they bring a pocket full of dead presidents I suppose we could make it happen.
Y'all have a gooden. Praying Angel hug

Mornin' all! My Friday. Weather is coming around, looks like there is a good chance of getting the full program in tomorrow with minimal delay. I'm hoping that happens for Saturday and Sunday too. Lot of people looking forward to this race, already rolling to KRP.

J, the heat is no joke, the humidity really knocks me down. That's scary stuff. I don't know how you deal with the AZ temps. I really don't know how the soldiers deal with high temps, while wearing full gears, on high alert. I saw Kuwait was over 120* last week.

Fern, I don't know what a cooler is, if it's not a fridge, freezer, or cooler. Never had AC at my parents house growing up, not even a window unit... then the summer after I move out, they get central air. Dad said doing that ensured both of their survival: Mom from the heat, Dad from Mom if she didn't get CA! Big Grin

Floyd, you have some of that crazy heat too. Good luck with the trailer sale, if they're working with you.

You all have a great day and weekend! Ice cream time!

I figure RED knows what a "cooler" is. When I lived in AZ it was the first kind of A/C. Hot here. I trimmed the hedges and searched for the oil leak my car is supposed to have but have found nothing----I was at Capitol several years ago and they claimed I leaked something that could never be found. Oh well guess that's one way to park you. Good race at Rockingham this weekend but I can't go. Might get to visit but not race. I'll be listening to you Chuck even tough Pro-Ams aren't my favorite thing. RED who was the guy from Apache Junction racing at Piedmont last week?

Mornin Y'all,
The boys came down and looked the trailer over and said it's the nicest trailer they have seen. I told them that earlier. Hell, it's like brand new. They will be back Monday morning with a stack of dead presidents and will take it to it's new home. I did okay on the deal, so did they, and if I decide to get back after it I will just buy another one. Maybe I should go into the trailer business. I actually made some money on the last 3 I have had. Plus I got to use them.
Y'all have a gooden. Praying Angel hug

Fern, just took some time off. If we decide to get back in we will get ahold of Kenny Anderson and get another trailer built, only this time with only 6" extra height instead of the 12" we ordered last time. That extra height makes that rear door extra heavy for an old man.
The race truck and the UTV aren't going any where. It just made since to let the trailer go for the money we got.

Had a meeting with the "professionals" at Mamas rehab-nursing facility yesterday. Like talking to a bunch of politicians with the same results. I have her in whats supposed to be one of the best places in the state yet they do some of the dumbest things routinely and no matter how many times I point them out they continue. As much as it costs we should get better. We are all going to face this part of our life sometime and it is pitiful that old folks can't be treated better. Think about it.
