    Just finished running the Grand Prix Event Opening Round and got 201 points, which puts me in 21st place. Only the top 50 go to Sunday's Final, so I should be okay. There are 4 people who haven't run all 8 races, 3 have run 7 and 1 ran 6. They could bump my position down a little bit but the goal was to move on to the final. The first 5 screenshots were taken after I ran 7 races and the bottom 4 are the special prizes and coins that will be awarded to each player.

    In Saturday's race I placed 26th good enough for today's final. Working on raising the number of flags to give me a better chance to win races before I run the Grand Prix Event. There are 8 races on the same number of tracks..

    I finished 21st out of 100 drivers in the final. The best I've run in the final was 15th about 3r 4 weeks ago. Today I changed clubs to one that is higher ranked and they have players that are the same rank as myself or better.

    While playing with my phone came across this photo of Space Shuttle Discovery Flight Deck right before they power down for the last time. It went to the Smithsonian Institute in Chantilly Virginia.

    I saw Broken Arrow's Police sports car this afternoon, saw it about a month ago for the first time. Sure does blend in with regular traffic.


    Police sports car is on the left. If you zoom in you can see the Police sign on the left rear panel. His lights were on and taking an autograph from an unfortunate driver but the Sun blocks lights out.

    Yessir looks like kind of a sleeper there Joe. It can get right in amongst the regular traffic.

    It will have limited range, though.

    Hopefully it can maintain a charge during its shift!

    We just had a visitor at our front door. A Crawfish and every once in awhile a frog and Canadian Geese. We live in the middle of Broken Arrow and it feels like the country because east there is a big open field with a fire station a block away on other side of field. A huge park is across from the station and a few houses to the south and west. North is downtown about half mile. Every place we frequently go to is a mile a half away or less, we love it here. Only hear sirens maybe twice a day, our old apartment was 3 blocks from a fire station so we're used to the sirens. Better than Owasso, we heard commercial aircraft and Air Guard F-16's from the airport all day long, airport was 5 miles south.

    Having trouble loading a photo, will try again later.

    Today is Cynthia and mine 40th anniversary, we don't have anything going on other than a nice dinner. All quiet here and it rained this morning, first rain for about a month, we are in a terrible drought.

    Think I found a great lady, guess I will keep her.

    !!? Thank you to everyone for your congratulations !!!

    We only had three days off work so we spent our wedding night on the Queen Mary in Long Beach CA in the Captains cabin with a brunch in the morning and we took a tour of the ship afterwards. They have an excellent display of Titanic items and a breaf explanation for each and more displays of WWII items and the ships history. Don't know why I didn't think to take a camera with us. The rest of our time we toured LA and San Diego. We lived in Burbank, I
    drove 60 miles north to get to work in Palmdale and Cynthia drove 35 miles south for her job. I had the distance and she had the traffic, it took both of us a hour one way. She was a Final Inspector for Transducers used on all aircraft. Altogether we were both in aircraft industry at the same time for 5 years.

    We spent $450 on gas and our apartment rent was $400, gas was $1.15 and the speed limit was 55. Remember those days? A two bedroom house went for $100K in the LA area and were selling in a short time, a year later the same size house was $150K. Can't imagine how much it is today.

    I went to my Orthopedic Surgeon's office last Thursday to review the MRI results and I have a pinched nerve in the disc above where I had surgery about five years ago. They want to do back injections first to see if it will relieve the pain in my back and legs. If that doesn't work they will have to do surgery again. My pain level is about a 7 to 8 every day and some days I can barely walk. Will be glad when this is done and feel better, it's been months since I was feeling good. Miss working on my layout.
