Been quiet but have done a few things but nothing around the house. Spent turkey day afternoon with buddy with the race car and his mom. Friday went and got new phones. Spent the rest of the day trying to get that usable. Saturday went o Sam's club then went out for lunch with the youngest daughter with the youngest grand kid after dropping everything off at the house. This morning had the grand kid over night, got breakfast then installed a new LED 3rd brake light in the Colorado. Had some mail and bills to deal with. Now just hanging out getting ready to go back to the Circus they call work.

Found out friday that our latest immediate manager is now not able to communicate with us directly. Along with not to be talking to the City or WWT. He is allowed to send messages via one of our team members to send to the team. He doesn't want to or have the time to be the go between. This crap is getting uglier as time goes on.

Have to say I'm not looking forward to hanging the lights. Either get on the roof or move the boat. Neither one I want to do. Think I'll move the boat so I'm not hanging off the roof.

Not getting to the lights. Been a crazy week. GF's mom had a stroke Wednesday morning and been in the hospital since. So we have been decorating in the house doing things we can stop in the middle of incase we need to go get her. We didn't put up our big tree, so we went and got a 4 footer to put on a table so we have room for her to move around. The big tree we rearrange furniture that would impede her movement. She will be doing therapy here at the house once they get that setup.

Doing much better. Until the docs have checked her out we are not letting her drive. She will be doing therapy at the house. She has pretty much kicked her walker to the curb but using it if she leaves the house.

Been a rough past few days. We had the youngest friday and Saturday nights due to mom being sick and dad having to work. Then we got it. I think we have it on the run now.  I did get Frosty and Santa up Sunday, but no lights on the house. Screw it, Just a little over a week away from Christmas anyways.

EEEKKK!!! The past week has been BUSY both at home and at work. Glad to be off until the 3rd of Jan. Of course will be doing the Hangovers in Tucson the 30th and 31st.

I had a meeting with a manager over us at the city. He wanted to know what was going on with us and GMI who I work for. SO I filled him in. He is not happy to know what GMI has done and that some of the team is going to be looking elsewhere for employment after the first of the year. WWT lawyers have looked at the Noncompete thats being held over our heads and not able to find a way out at this time. He did say that it's BS that they are holding it over on us even though they are the ones that ended the contract early. Not sure what can be done, but I was assured that they are trying to figure it out and wants the team to stay. We will see!! I can't talk to the team about this meeting as this was privet so he is going to have our immediate manager to the city fill the team in since we haven't had any info in about 3 months. We will see what happens.

Christmas is done and we have 364 days until we do it all again. Now to get ready to inhale racing fuel fumes and bath in hot rubber smoke at the hang overs.  :laugh  Leaving Thursday morning to get setup and there are racing Friday though Sunday. Hopefully we will go a few rounds and get into the cash at least once.

Back At Ya!! :good  :beer  :drink

Was a long weekend, but we got through it. Didn't do for crap either day. Was windy Friday and Saturday and not real warm out during the day. Sunday sun was out and very little air movement until the sun went behind clouds, then it got chilly out. Car did good, driver/owner I don't think was doing well(long story). Car did run a 5:94 friday. After that I don't think he was really into it physically. Don't know when the next outing will be. I have a feeling it may be at least 3 months if I would guess.

Did you happen to see that Wild Horse is now being called Firebird Motorsports Park now. Looks like not just drags and short coarse off road, but they are and have scheduled boat drags on that nasty a$$ lake.
