What a craxy day I've had so far...

 
Good Saturday Morning,
 
What a day already!  Wind is blowing like crazy...  that time of year tho.  My fall consists of scalped grass, getting ready for winter rye to go in before Halloween so my yard looks good for trick or treaters and wind... ICK
Fall is not my favorite time of year... Summer is... but that is another entry...
 
I get up at 6am because we have 2 races this weekend at Glen Helen.  The boys need to practice for a HUGE National coming up in November in Arizona. We will be gone Nov 2 to Nov 12... [we are staying in a Bates like Motel because all the stupid NASCAR fans [except Phil] have taken up all the rooms...
 
At 6:30 am I drive over to CVS to get ice and dog food...
they open at 7 Grrrr..   
I drive over to Wal-greens...
they open at 7 double Grr.. 
 
[Walmart is much farther and I hate my Super Walmart anyway... sorry Lisa Jo... its a Gang hang out and I am not in the mood for a drive by today]
 
OMG... speaking of a drive by - Kameron's friend Joshua [who lives around the corner from us] comes over about 2 weeks ago with... are you ready for this... bullet holes in his car!
I guess he was down at the Street Fair on Thursday [which I never let my kids go to when they were growing up... a bunch of teenagers hanging out doing nothing spells trouble to me...] anyway he saw some old friends he use to hang out with and they asked Josh for a ride home... Josh says ok... on the way home... some Mexicans saw them and I guess they have a beef going, they started flashing gang signs and the next thing you know... The Mexicans pulled out a gun and started firing!
Whoa... crazy... I'm telling you my town is going to 'Hell in a Handbasket'...
 
Ok back to my day...  I ended up going to Albertson's [my grocery store] they open at 6am woo hoo!  Grab the ice and the dog food...
 
6:45 am we head to the races... 2 minutes later... Sam says
 
"The trailer brakes are not on, Kieffer go wiggle the plug at the hitch" nothing happens... [trailer brakes help slow the HEAVY trailer down so you dont have to use your truck brakes]
"Must be a fuse, Ill have to pick one up... no big deal we can use the truck brakes" Sam says and we are on our way again... 10 minutes down the freeway Sam says "Oh SHIT" and pulls over to the shoulder of the freeway.
[One of our white panels with our sponsors names on it... peeled off the trailer and flew down the freeway and the next panel was ready to do the same...]
 
We had to nurse the trailer back home before the next one flew off...
 
I said "Its a sign... no racing today" 
 
So we came back home and went back to bed...
