Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday to my mom!  (Even though she never took me to see Harlem Globetrotters.)

This is my mom at Kansas Speedway last year, as we stood in line getting ready to go drifting.  Seriously, how many mid-60s women do you know would be so psyched about getting to do drifting that they would willingly go through the entire Marlboro Experience exhibit and get inundated with tobacco propaganda?

Btw, if you don't know what drifting is, check out this video

In fact, she was SO psyched about it, we cut it close and almost missed driver intros.  Race be damned, we were going drifting!  It was pretty cool.  I still have my drifting pass hanging by my front door.


  1. I love your Mom!!! in a bit more than 10 years, I'll be her age... I hope they let me go drifting!!
