I Found Toto! Safe and Sound in Kansas

September 14, 2008

See?

(Talking a walk with Ann – my brother’s s/o, and Jeepers and JJ their dogs.)

I had a wonderful flight (can a flight be wonderful?) I sat next to a sweet little lady originally from England and we had a nice conversation for a while, interspersed with listening to great music on the iPod. I was determined to just enjoy the ride and didn’t even crack open the laptop, although I should have because I have work to do. I’ll get to that later tonight.

Today, I got a ride in my brother’s race car. He took me on some spins around the block here that were better than an E ride at Disneyland – and totally illegal. We blew right past a cop (or security guard) and they did nothing. Phew! Boy, that handle on the door really does serve a purpose… keeps you from flying into the driver’s seat around those fast turns.

Next we drove to Topeka to see the race track where they will be racing on Tuesday and Wednesday. It was overcast and very windy – and cool. I was totally not prepared for the coolness, but my brother has taken care of me with a warm fleece jacket.

Now, we’re watching the Seahawks game while Chris and Ann are loading the car up on the trailer to take out to the track tomorrow, while I stay here, walk to Weight Watchers, and work.

Here are a few pictures for your entertainment.

Sunset last night as we went to dinner at Chili’s.

This is my speed of race car…

Some of the cars lined up to do their “test and tune”, which is kind of like a practice run.

    Loved the little pink Jeep! Just my speed, too!

    What a gorgeous sunset!

    Oh this looks great! I loved “Sunset over Chilis” and thought it was beautiful…it almost looked like Hawaii for a second. Your brother’s car is really cool. But Toto looks a little nervous.

    Hey – we were both in KS at the same time! (I was in Wichita, tho and flew home Sunday during prime football time)

    and whackadoodle! Suede lives to see another week!?!

    Hey, Curious.. too funny. Suede will go soon, though. He’s definitely not a contender for the prize, in my opinion.
