My daughter and her ex bf, now friend.
P, your daughter looks so thrilled in the first pic, your son is too cute and you are lovely.
Your daughter is pretty.
I like the pic of you and your hubs true race fans eh?
Awww, thanks, Lisa!
Yes, we are HUGE fans - we wear scanners and take our FanScan, too!
That pic was taken at IRP. Fabulous race track but NO leg room. I'm pretty much average sized (5'7") and the ENTIRE race all I did was ram my knees into the poor old lady in the row in front of me.
I wonder why they make seats like that, I had that problem at Pocono and now they put in new seats which makes it worse. I am 5'9 so I tried to sit without bumping the person infront of me. I pity someone who is 300 lbs they are not fitting into the seat.
My friend Nicole and I(on the Right).My eyes look pretty wonky..cause Im looking to the side..lol.
BTW.I mentioned I was short..Heres a good height representation..She's sitting down...Im standing. lol
Don't pity them; they're usually sitting next to me! The seats in Richmond aren't individual seats; they're benches with #s on the back. It's tight for an average sized-person. Talladega is much nicer (Indy, too); individual chair-type seats.
BTW, you can rent the Fan Scan for $50 at the races!
a few years ago, me and the kids
Yeah and that was only about 6 years ago...lord what a difference a few years makes! Sucks to get old!
Well then...another tractor pic, just for you! They had a tractor pull with the antiques. I couldn't do that, take my perfectly restored 1935 tractor out, and see if I can tear it up! Sure, they all ran fine, but if I did that...KABOOM!
I am sorry that currently I can not see most the Pics.
Rickenbacker's son looks very happy.
#1 me, 20lbs ago in March. I am actually standing on a wall of Abraham's (Biblical) Fatherís House next to the Ziggurat of Ur. Funny, before this I thought Ziggurats were an invention of Blizzard in the Warcraft Games.
#2 my #3 Son (second youngest)
#3 the Ziggurat
I will show some more, but I have to be carefull of the actual content.
These are a Sand/Rain Storm coming in. Most times a sand storm will turn everything a hazy orange color, but this is actually a regular storm pushing sand in front of it. It was like watching a movie when clouds fill the air right before evil happens.
These are pictures of my CHU (Containerized Housing Units). Imagine one of those shipping trailers/containers you see loaded and stack on ships for ocean hauls. Take that trailer/container add 3 to four doors along the side and a couple of windows. Inside insert a few walls and linoleum and you have a CHU. The Brits went with the in-CHU Crypt idea of protection. We Americans build walls of cement and sand all around. That cement block thing is designed for sleeping in. Obviously I use it for storage. I am also lucky enough to have a position and rank that warrants a single CHU, normally this sleeps 2 to 4. I am standing at the door and there is about 3í of space between the end of the crypt and the wall.
My thanks to you as well, Wretched. Be careful over there.
Thank you very much Wretched1 for the pictures. I find them fascinating. I will never go there so the only way I'll ever get to see it, is through pictures. I was also very interested in your life and how you lived over there so thanks for posting those as well. Of course I understand you can't risk security of our troops by posting anything that can't be seen on the web. These are great and please keep them coming, whenever you can. Please be safe over there and know how much we appreciate your service to our country.
P.S. It looks like there are some really big ass bugs around there. Sand beatles? UGH. Pictures? lol! And snakes too. Has anyone ever gotten bitten by anything?
The latest of me from last night. The last one is of me & my friend Sherry
