Are you carrying on?

And waiting for my post on Import Wars?
Well, I will have to upload the pics tonight, because I still haven't done it. (Boooooooooo!) But worry not, because the pics aren't even of cars. Heh, how's that for suspense?
Import Wars was better than last year, and I say this every year because it just gets better and better. The only difference was that Daddy didn't get to run his car because most of its motor is sitting in my kitchen enjoying the breeze. My sister's boyfriend ran his, and he got down the quarter mile in 12.8 seconds at 105 mph. For those in the know: that's good. Well, to me it is, he felt he could have done better and as soon as we got back home he was already making plans on things to change and tinker with. A few of Daddy's friends made good times, one guy went down in 14.7- and that was with cracked valves! (Which he didn't know about, and his whole car could have just died, but thankfully it didn't.) Another made it down in 9.9 at 147 mph! There were no crashes this year, and I don't think anybody's car even broke down. It was hooooooooot in New Hampshire, I had put on the baby's sunblock (SPF 50) so I wouldn't burn, I haven't been out in the sun like that in a good two years. But we had fun. The event didn't end until 9:30-10 and we got home about one in the morning.
The baby enjoyed his stay with my mother. She and my sister took him to my aunt's house down in the woods for a cook-out and he was ecstatic with the toys they had. My cousin has a boy about a year older than Little Man, so there were things there he could enjoy. My mother had no complaints (as she usually does) and didn't even call me at 8 in the morning telling me to go get him. I picked him up at about ten, and he was NAPPING!!!!!!! She told me he had been up playing since six. So I just sat there and chatted with her until he woke up. If I had known he was going to be sleeping, I would have stayed home in bed a little while longer...
The pictures I am going to post here are inspired by Dawn and her trip to the Unholy Mecca. I give full credit to her, because never would I have thought "Hey, I'm going to take a picture of this chick's outfit and post it on th net!" There were some RIDICULOUSLY dressed females over there, and I took pics of a few just to give you guys a look at what I was exposed to while I was there. And these weren't even chicks from NH, I see one of them all the time in my own city. And she dresses like this all the time. Ugh, I can't wait to show you guys.
So you will have to wait, again.
I do apologize.
Or is it really a ploy to get you to keep coming back??? Thinking The world may never know.* Roll

*Anybody know where that's from???

Those were some great times you were mentioning. Sounds like something I would really enjoy.

I dated guys in high school who drag raced and it was so much fun to go to the strip, help them drop the headers and see how fast we could fly.

My ex husband used to circle track race (dirt tracks) and there's nothing like the feeling of being in the pits.

Thanks for bringing back some fond memories for me.

Question: How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop?

Mamaof2: Always welcome. Once I figure out how to do it- I will post videos of them racing.
Jay- How did I know you would get it? The alternate answer was when the owl bit the toostie pop! I remember that one!
