Oh how fun. I was in SC, GA in 2011, the weekend of the Talladega race. I almost called in to work to extend my vacation, rearrange my flights to skip over to AL to see it. Oh so close. Maybe in the near future.

I don’t really care who wins (except not Kenseth) as long as its someone on my team and not on BSR or Mr. Bent Tubes teams.

Awesome thread btw. You’re really getting the hang of this.

Mrs. Happydog & I have confirmed reservations for both Vegas & Sonoma races next year. Onward Christian soldiers.....

As your free prepaid legal advisor, I advise you to forget all your other horrible legal problems and run these drivers:

Richard Petty
Rusty Wallace
Bill Elliot
Fireball Roberts

With the year I’ve had, and if you’ve got a couple of hours I’ll tell you all about it, I’m ready to run those drivers. They’re so good it makes me gift-tip to you seem like peanuts - but run Tony Stewart - my real legal team of Myster, Hyster and Shyster would never steer me wrong.

BTW weather is clear and beautiful. Lows have been around 20 but the highs have been in the low to mid 60’s every day. Crisp clear Fall weather that’s supposed to last for another week - great BMW convertible weather.

Yeah, a CC using banned substances. I feel like the whole damn world is going crazy - Drudge has a headline about a reporter asking the director of “Gravity” what its like to film in space. Forget Lo-Flo voters. The majority of society is clueless.

So, what’s going to be ready to be picked or stole come June 25th of next year??

Hey, I got sued out of the blue last year. My family owns a big tract of land in N.Florida that is inherited from my grandmothers homestead inheritance. Someone, 2nd generation sold land in the middle of the inheritance to a scumbag that apparently has had a family feud with my family for a long time. I do not know him at all. Since I am the limited partnership trustee, he sued me and also one of my cousins to “take” property to build a road from the highway to his landlocked property so he could build a residential community. He knew it had no roads when he bought the property. We won, he lost. Beat the scumbags and life is good. Good luck to you and hope you win the BMW contest to win a BMW M6 in every color and chassis configuration!

Aaah, it has snowed on the front range overnight! And I have a long weekend to sit & enjoy the weather and scenery. This fall has been one of the most beautiful in terms of tree color. Where I work they have a lot of colorful bushes and trees. Breath taking day after day.

And they have Boulder Canyon open. I can possibly get to Rocky Mountain NP.

Anytime and the idiot box just had a shot of heavy snow falling in Denver. On top of that I have discovered a repeated personal behavior - not quite the secret of life but close - when I was a young lad I might have had trouble keeping my pants zipped. Now that I am in my mid-60’s the same behavior is again front and center. Sadly it is for 2 totally different reasons.

Sounds like a great time to make him a very low ball offer since his only access to the property is by air.

Happened to be at the BMW/Audi dealership in Bend yesterday. Snowflake tires for the wife’s X-1, blah, blah, blah. Was looking at a black Audi A-5 convertible - 67K - beautiful car and thought of you. (those things just come in a soft top?) I really like the BMW Z-4’s; twas a toss-up btn one and the 335 this S[ring but got a better deal on the ‘335. . Desires are always for a bigger fish, faster or newer car, bigger house/boat/handgun, etc. Good thing wants and needs are part of the equation along with contentment. Ok, where do I enter the BMW M-6 contest???

I read this article on Todd Parrott and Richard Petty Motorsports. Here is an excerpt and a link; something I didn’t know about RPM.

“The No. 43 car at RPM has never participated in any NASCAR programs affiliated with alcohol, dating back to seven-time champion Richard Petty’s days as a driver. Petty’s mother made the request, since she was against alcohol and banned substance. As a result, the car doesn’t participate in beer-sponsored contingency programs and didn’t run in the exhibition opening race of Daytona Speedweeks when it was sponsored by Budweiser. The No. 43 also does not participate in the Coors Lite pole award program in NASCAR.”

The 5-series Audis are available in hard top coupe and convertable models. They are also available in A-5, S-5 and RS-5 models. The RS-5 has the 4.2L normally asperated V8 tuned to 450 hp. Know what you mean about always something bigger/better. I could trade my wife for something bigger (Roseanne?).

Working on a list of races that freezers might be going to: I went back through some of the old threads, but got tired of looking at them. Take a look. Some of the comments were generic enough that I didn't know which race when there were two, so I put the freeper's name for all races at that track. We can keep working on it.

We have confirmed reservations (Premier Sports Pkg) for both Las Vegas and Sonoma for 2014. Mrs. Happydog has decided she'd rather not go to Phoenix or Texas this year to celebrate our anniversary but has booked us here for early November:

Mauna Kea, Kohola Coast, Big Island
