Go Fast, Turn Left

We spent a fun Sunday with Teresa & Charlie at the Kansas Speedway watching the STP 400!

Visiting the pit area before the race.
We had great seats directly behind the flag stand,
the NASCAR equivalent of the 50-yard line or home plate!
 To kick off the race; a flyover by three A-10s. 
I always get goosebumps when the jets fly over at these types of events!
 A lineup of semi trailers and race cars ready to go!
 While we were walking around before the race I was surprised to find graffiti written on the white line on the track.  Apparently this person is not a fan of the Busch brothers or Busch beer!
 This pit crew member was gluing the lug nuts into place on the wheel. 
He told Teresa that 'nobody touches the lug nuts but him.'
Race fans!
Down in the pits looking back at the grandstand!

Griff Happens

She's a mess all right. And she leaves a mess everywhere she goes.

But with a cute face like that she's quickly forgiven!

Duckscaping Part II - The Wall (for Jerry)

More awesome landscaping completed by my 'rock' star husband!

Friday, April 6, 2012


The landscaping crew (a.k.a. Bob & his John Deere) have been very busy.
And we love the results!
Front yard: River birch, knock roses, ornamental grasses,
berm, & a big rock complete with moss.
Back yard outside the master bedroom window:
it was labeled as a red bud but we're not sure with the red leaves.
Front yard: a 12-foot white pine placed a bit north and west of the front porch.
Back yard: another 12-foot white pine to the north and east of the back porch.
Tomorrow we'll fill the pots with the flowers we bought today!
Hooray for Spring!
(and my hard working husband!)
