It has been an interesting three weeks for me. I have made so many visits to the doctors offices, I just didn’t have the energy to write here in the Park. I figured once I turned 40 last year it was time to get things checked out. And boy did I. I saw several doctors and had various tests run. I have to say all have turned out negative. The one I was worried about the most (the stress test and echocardigram) turned out good. I have two more and I am done for the year, I hope. And just when I thought I was done with the medical community, I end up with a nasty respiratory infection which resulted in the loss of my voice. I know those around me have been teasing me about this fact. For me, it has been frustrating since my job requires me to talk with people. But I do have some really good medication and on the way to recovery.
I have been watching NASCAR. I just haven’t felt the desire to write about it. I can’t explain why. I am working on a little project related to NASCAR. I am keeping it close to the vest right now. It’s something I have wanted to research for awhile and am hoping to parlay into something. So for now, I am quietly doing my research and putting things into place. Hopefully it comes out the way I want it to.
I have to say I was thrilled to see Kevin make a last lap pass on Jimmie last week at California. That is what I like to see in NASCAR. Makes it all worth watching the race. I did kind of find it a little funny that Kevin had a big “JJ” on his hood. I also have to give Kevin props too. I have seen Kevin move people out of the way to get the win. Prior to California, the boys were at Bristol. I do not find racing at Bristol as exciting as I use to. I guess I liked the beatin’ and bangin’ and movin’ people out of the way. I guess I am just odd in my way of thinking. I tend to like Martinsville more now than before. Of course I do like short track racing over the mile and halfs.
Next week, the boys travel to my home state of Texas. Wish I was headed out that way next weekend, but with our family getting ready to move to another house and other expenses, it is not going to be possible. I am crossing my fingers and saving the green to possibly make the trip in November. In the mean time, I will be watching the racing next weekend. For those who have never been to a night race at TMS…I love it. The trucks race at night and they always have great racing action at those events. I am hoping it is the same way next Saturday!
Other non-NASCAR notes…baseball season has begun! The Texas Rangers are the defending American League champions!!!
