    I've been through cancer treatment before (breast cancer. yes, I'm a guy).

    I've decided to not do it again. I'm never going to the doctor.

    Somewhere, amongst our lives, we get to make that decision.

    I, too, had access to all these cars without having to buy them. For the last twenty or twenty five years I've worked for millionaire car collectors. The first with a 200 car collection and the second with an eight hundred car collection. I know the guys think I'm a liar, cause every time someone mentions an exotic car I say I've driven one. It was fun going to all the best car shows around the country. All the cars, especially the newer exotic cars had to be driven, and I was elected. Tough job but someone has to do it. Sorry we got off on the wrong foot.

    They closed all the "expensive" threads. I guess it hurts some people feelings.

    The ultra expensive cars, I have got to experience in the best way. Someone else pays for them. The reason for this is a have cupole friends in Europe that have old money. Money just flows. My friend with the two ferraris has them, a Bentley Continental GT, a Rolls Phantom, and a 911 at the moment. Most of the time when I go to Switzerland, he lets me borrow the 911 because it just sits at the airport 80% of the time.

    I just need to figure out how to get money to throw away like that.

Had an odd little encounter this afternoon. My wife and decided to go to a movie and relax for a couple of hours. The theater was in extreme north Dallas, Tx, Plano, actually. We didn't decide to go til we were in a bit of rush to get there. We missed the theater and crossed the toll road into another shopping mall. We saw the theater and headed back out into traffic. On the way out of the parking lot we encountered a girl pushing a shopping cart up the right side of the road. We didn't encounter...

Stupid was me. Fayatteville, NC 1960 I found a little drag strip on a guy's private land. It was not much of a drag strip, but it was the only one I could find. Before every race day they had to take a tractor and fill a drainage ditch that cut the strip in the shutdown area. The ultimate car stopper was a pond at the the end of the shutdown. They got cars from Virginia and the other surrounding states. They had dragster powered by Oldsmobile, Chevy 348, Buick, Lincoln, and even Studebaker....

There were things we could not do where I was in Korea. We could not have civilian clothes, or civilian cars, or go roaming around the country side weekends (uncharted minefields). What really irritated us was that in Seoul, twenty five miles away, you could do all that. One upside was that you were pretty much exempt from prosecution from the local authorities.

One thing you did not do was piss off your drafted NFL division football team players. The first Cav Division's football...

King Cove, Alaska, where my brother was a cop is built on an old Grizzly migratory path. The Grizzlies do not know that they should change their route, and the humans did not tell them. The humans just moved in and built a fish cannery. Consequently there is quite a bit of inter-action between the two species.

The first thing my brother do before taking out the trash was to check the dumpster to see if it was full of grizzly. One night he drove up to his house and there was a...

Whether they're famous to you would be determined by how old you are and your field of interest.

Dateline, Amelia Island, Fla-awhile ago.
Bobby Unser: I attended a meeting with several retired Indy drivers, all past winners of the race. It was kind of like a Trekky convention, with better mingling.

After the official program was over and the mingling started, I wound up with Unser. He was talking about how they used to build the old Indy Roadsters, and in...
