spring 2010, north park, talladega, alabama
 updated 05.01.10
 
    this year, i drove up to the race. thursday and friday were great, until the rain started friday evening and lasted until saturday evening. apparently, tornadoes, damaging wind, hail, and inches of rain reigned havoc around the state. we got off relatively easy with just wind and rain. all saturday events were cancelled. sunday was wonderful and we worked in two races. it was a long day, but worth it.
    we had many more visitors this year, several of which promised to send in pictures. to them i say, thanks for stopping by, now send in your damn pictures!
    can you answer the question of the weekend: "Who's Pinker Brown?"

red thought she was on mitch's team and cheered every time he scored.

matt re-enacts 'metallica' guy.


campground rule #24: all jeff gordon paraphernalia must be covered in order to protect the children.

on the other hand, she never complains, never talks back, never says no, does not want your money, isn't hooked on shoes, lets you play your music loud, lets you go out whenever you want, doesn't care if you bring home other blow up women, is always ready, likes all your friends, doesn't care if you leave the toilet seat up, won't drink your beer, won't wreak your vehicle, no p.m.s., doesn't care that you hate her family, you can vacation where you want, with or without her, you don't have to respect her in the morning or ever, she is willing to try new things, she isn't all judgmental about those special web sites you like to visit, no complaints when you belch and fart around her, you do not need to get her drunk first, will ride in the trunk without complaining, won't start crying when you rip off the duct tape, won't run away screaming, and is easily hosed off and deflated for storage. she represents everything men want in a woman. see how surprised she is to see you? she really likes you! note the wide set eyes. everyone knows this means she's as smart as a real woman, but knows to keep her opinions, thoughts, demands, and tiresome emotional issues to herself. she has no fingers, so no need to buy her a ring or worry about her screwing with the tv remote. her breasts will stay firm forever or until she springs a leak, which is why she comes with the 'easy breezy patching kit'. look at all the money you'll save on clothes! is she getting a bit fat? let out some air. take her swimming and she could save your life! you can even buy her younger sister! and her hot mom (if applicable)! most importantly, she will never complain about how small your, oh, look at the time!
