With a Bang! and not without a couple of Closing Conflagrations!
For those who didn't/'don't follow NASCAR... the boys behind the steering wheels demonstrated their "Prima Donna" personalities... and... juuuuust a bit of nigh on to criminal behavior... On the LAST lap of the race.
When a driver Waits on the track to ambush another driver... That should have the consequence of a Lifetime Ban from NASCAR. buuuuuuut I have no doubt that Jeff Gordon will not be banned.
NASCAR had better get its house in order... or i'ts going to see something truly tragic happening down the road... and sooner rather than later... I'd guess most of those drivers are good Ol' boys... but some of them are overpaid Punks that need to meet a 2X4 out behind the shed...
If I was a Sponsor, spending Millions on these races... I'd be telling those who I sponsored... Clean up your act and stand up like a man and Behave like one... or you'll be walking.
I'm not holding my breath...
Then, last night as we were shutting down the trams we look over and there are towering flames shooting up over our rigs which are parked right beside the tram yard...
I sprinted my crippled kiester as fast as I could out around the gate and to our trailer to get the dogs out before the conflagration could get to the rig...
Heidi came around the rigs and took the dogs from me... and I turned back to see if a fire extinguisher would have any hope... to find that it WAS NOT an RV on fire in this packed awning to slide camp of 6000 plus rigs...
Some Mongoloid Idiot... had piled up a stack of wood the size of a large tear drop and touched it off... They lit a freakin' Bon Fire right in amongst all these rigs!!!
'Tween me squallin' on My tram radio and our mechanic squallin' on his... we had four sheriffs and three Fire Department trucks come rippin' in... I don't know if they cited the idiot for the absence of anything resembling even debilitated common sense... but I'm hopin' so!
Took my ticker some little while to settle down... I'm tellin' ya'll... it's a fun deal, all these folks partyin' and havin' a good time... buuuuuuut....
... after three or four days of Chemical Personality Enhancement in a can... some folks just get butt ugly STUPID! ;)
Otherwise... it was a good week and has added a nice bit to our coffers.
Those coffers will be getting moved out to the Quartzsite area in the next day... and I'll get back to chillin' on the warm desert... and stringin' words together for that fourth Novel that's in production! ;)
Along with workin' on a few of the other "Projects" I've had on my list for a while...
Right now I'd better get to packin' up camp to move
If you're headed to Q now, and will still be there in January when we come through... that's a long time! You'll never make it for the ants in your pants :)) But if you do... see ya there.

What is it they say about "stupid"?
Right, that's it, "Can't fix it".
afternoon brian as i mentined we will be down there jan feb and into march talked with Darryl and he will also be kicking around soo a dinner with all would be nice as the other halves will be there also this yr and maybe a scoot on the bikes would be nice
Mark; Those ants are gonna have to learn some patience! Pure and simple I've got to get some work done to earn a living! :)I've got to exercise some discipline, do a lot of catchin' up on my writing and rebuild what all these repairs are draining! I expect to be somewhere 'tween Q and Roosevelt through April.
Bob; We sat and watched the recorded race at my sisters tonight... frame by frame... sure those boys play a bit rough, bumpin' and pushin'... but this one... If I'd have done something like that when I was a kid? My Ol' Grandad woulda wore out a 2X4 on my backside. Those drivers, like it or not serve as "Roll Models" for a lot of kids growing up. Just like Basketball players, Baseball stars... on and on... A HUGE % of any of those "Stars" couldn't earn my respect so that I'd have enough trust to follow 'em to an outhouse ...if I had dysentery!
Kerry! That sounds Awesome fella!
