I'll never get away from it!

RACING!
CARS!
These are the things that are constantly on Daddy's mind. He loooooooves cars and anything that has to do with them. Import cars, muscle cars, show cars, you name it he loves it. He has a stack of magazines that fills a big giant cardboard box to the very top. Don't try to throw these magazines away...nonoNO, you will DIIIIIIEEEEEE! I swear if I added up the cost of all those magazines (they average about 3-5 bucks apiece) there would be THOUSANDS of dollars in the box. I should sell them on e-bay...hmmm...(insert evil laugh here.)
Do you know how happy Daddy was when we had digital cable? (Which we don't anymore because why are we going to pay all that money when we aren't even home...ever?) Do you know how happy he was when we had the Speed Channel? All racing, all cars, all the time! That man would be up at eight o'clock on a Sunday morning just to watch his shows. I will admit, there were a couple that I was addicted to, one being Pinks! and another being the Nascar. (Pinks! is a show where two people bring their cars to race eachother for their pink slips, loser loses their car. I loooooved it. I miss it!) Nascar I liked because it was actually exciting to watch sometimes, they have some crazy accidents on there sometimes, it's scary. Daddy wouldn't move from the couch if a new episode of any of his shows were on. He would take notes when shows had their step-by-steps on how to change this or fix that...

Well, I'm thinking on putting the digital back on. Racing Season is almost over here on the East Coast, our last trip to New Hampshire will be in October, and then we wait until next May when they open the track again. Maybe it will be a nice birthday present for Daddy...

I just wrote about Lucas' love of cars! It so must be a guy thing, because I don't get it.

At least New Hampshire is pretty, especially in the fall.

I watch Nascar for the same reason I watch hockey: speed and violence.
You could always be grateful that your husband is not overly devoted to something else - like PORN.

I would have to shoot myself. Thank goodness this does not hapen around my house. Although it's video games and cartoons here -- and that includes hubby and children.

I can't even recall the last time I watched MY OWN TV!
