Hello again

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!!!
