Mid September and sitting at the beach with my loving wife having a couple Oberon's. Life is very good!

And those were the legs you chose to put in a picture...

Snerk. She will literally be in a position to slap me soon.  Mums the word.

Dealing with a lifelong dominate eye being forced to become non-dominate by the other eye going from 20/150 to 20/40 (and getting better each day).

It's an odd feeling to reach for my prescription glasses (knowing the lens has been removed from the corrected side) and finding they make things worse even though the correction lens makes the previously-dominate eye see better.

Getting ready to spend about 15 minutes driving one of these around Auto Club Speedway.  :bigok:

We'll be there in November racing the Roval - part of the road course plus part of the Oval. Have fun!

Given my location near Charlotte, I get several opportunities to do this but haven't yet.  I would love a follow up with your thoughts, please.   Enjoy and thanks!

Cut, edged and cleaned up the waste for the lawn.  Blew off the driveway, pressure washed the blacktop and letting it air dry.  Got 20 gallons of sealer waiting for the next step.

That sounds way more fun. Lots of different cars on the road course today (something called the "Optima Ultimate Street Car" series -- looked cool) but I don't think they were racing wheel-to-wheel.

Well, it was a ton of fun, of course, and I'm glad I could get a sense of what a super speedway feels like -- cars limited to 150 mph, btw. No question I had a big smile.

But I'd do something else with my own money (this was a gift). It's not a lot of bang for the buck -- a lot of dough for a handful of laps. I was thinking I had a lot more fun at SoCal Supermoto where they let you ride all day -- with instruction and a wheel to wheel race -- until you're so tired you can't twist the throttle. And about half the cost.

Still, this was on the bucket list, so I'm glad I got the check mark.
