Pump Gas Drags '08

Hot Rod Magazine every year puts on the Pump Gas Drags here in Memphis. It was this past weekend. Let me give you a little run down on it, it's an invitational race. The cars all have to be street legal, granted barely. And they have to run on pump gas. There are other rules but I won't bore you with them now.
As part of the deal, they all go thru tech check at Comp Cams and then make a thirty mile drive thru Memphis to the track. The first year they did this on Friday night during rush hour. If you live in Memphis then you know what that's like. After that they started doing it on Saturday.
It started raining and having tornadoes in the area. So after the first round of elimination they decided to postpone them to Sunday AM. Of course with that being Mothers Day I had to miss the finals.
My thanks to Mellon for the great video. And follow the link. He also has great video of the races.
Makes me want a car again so bad.....maybe when I get some bills taken care of and life on a more even keel. Until then, I can dream. Peace!

A Little Advice

You know it's amazing the number of our patients that come into THE MED complaining that the police have beat them up. I think this video will explain how not to get beat up by the police. All good advice. Pass it on to your friends.

Have a good one. Drop a line. Let me know how your doing.

Jay's Prom

Well Jay has reached another milestone in his life. His first prom. He looked absolutely handsome. I forget just how great looking my son is sometimes. His date, Tiffany, was a total knockout in her dress. And together they were perfect. They looked like they should have been walking down a red carpet before an award show somewhere.

His friend, Nathan, is the son of one of my best friends from high school. Joey and I spent a little while talking about the last twenty-two years that have passed since our prom years. And how cool it is that our boys are friends. It was nice to catch up a little. We need to get together and really have a chance to talk.

here are a few pictures I took that day. Let me know what you think.
