Interested in seeing photos of beautiful deer, but running through the woods, not dead with someone standing over them all proud as if killing a defenseless animal is some accomplishment.

Went back in the archives to find this pic on Tony Stewart's bus with Tony and the guys from Diamond Rio at the Rock & Roll 400 a few years ago at Charlotte.
Incredible day, got to go to the driver's meeting, behind stage when Diamond Rio sang National Anthem - whole thing. I even have lug nuts from Tony's car :-) Thank goodness for memories because nothing that exciting happens anymore.

Danforth has been closed for the last few days and Alyssa and I worked constantly to make a bunch of quick changes and improvements and plans - Ava was right there the whole time, I left her for 3 minutes one time in the room alone and this is what I found when I returned.... what did I expect with her new treats there?

20 years ago tonight JB and I were celebrating his birthday gambling in the Bahamas when we got on a cold streak at blackjack so went into the theater and saw City Slickers. After seeing that movie, starting that very moment, I never ate red meat again, poor little Norman and his family and friends. Never again.

I have been so looking forward to dinner at Side Street tonight with my friends, the Costons and one of Erica's pomegranate martinis. Alas, it appears that since I can hardly turn my head and my shoulders and neck are soooooooooo sore and tight, Mom has set me up with a date that may save me. Just microwave him to get him warmed up for 1 - 2 minutes and relief is in sight. I actually think it is working.... owwwwwwwwwwwwww....
