After Sunday - Robby's 34th in owner points. a 22nd finish was OK, but he stayed out of trouble and did not get caught up in some ofthe stuff. I just read Shane Hmiel had pneumonia and his heart stopped 3 times. Doctors still have to address other injuries he sustained. I know this sounds cruel, and his fathre would miss him, but when his heart stopped maybe it would have been more of a blessing to just let him go. Joan
Hi Sarah - glad to hear from you - no plans for weekend, hope Phillies can pull off a miracle. Our heat went off again last night in the middle of the night, iit's very frustrating. The thermostat is new as of last year, so the guys have no idea why it just shuts down. Car running oK, taking it in on Monday check out the battery before the cold sets in. Got new wipers. Have a ton of laundry - put summer stuff away, etc. I can't believe it's almost Halloween (one of Robby's favorite holidays) I'll bet he will have a lot of fun sharing with Max - the costumes, etc. I loved dressing my kid up and when she was past that stage we still had fun going to the bars' for Halloween parites, prizes for costumes (some people get really elaborate). Are you planning a party for Halloween? Keep in touch Joan
Thanks for stopping by! Been busy building a new website for a bank on top of my regular jobs so haven't done much besides stalk here lately. But I do think of you every race! When RG isn't in the car, I wear my Harvick colors. When he is I keep my Harvick shirt out on a chair for luck. Pulling for him to take it all this year! What have you been up to?
Think I will pass on the "footed" PJs but if you wish me to I will gladly take pictures of you and Susan in them and post them to You Tube and entitled it "People of the Dog". HA HA Hope it works out that will get to meet up on Sunday
Yeah friend is very strong...Sorry to hear that your friends mom passed.... Lol about the caps.... The pens have started to turn it around after they put fluery on the bench.... They beat gonchar and the senators lastnite.... The steelers look real good in there win against the browns.... Have a great week!!!!!!
Hey Sarah - Are you still out there? The weekend was OK, glad Jamie won, RG is still 35th (miracle). Are you going to watch Tim Richmond movie on ESPN? I plan to if nothing interferes (like unwated phone call - per your recent blog) The heat has been off in our apt. and I so wanted a shower, but it's been too cold. Last night I drempt I was taking a hot shower (it felt good, but was only a dream). Bernadette the office mgr. said we would have heat tonight going down in the 40s. The new Milan needed a battery in the key and I also got a 2nd key for Gail. Got new wipers on and also told me before it gets really cold I will need a battery. I believe that because this thing has lights and signals everywhere - it even has lights on the outside mirrors and defroster there too, also a little light on each of the visor mirrors. I am still taking Milan 101. LOL Keep in touch - Joan
I will pray for your friends... I was wondering about your best friend and how she was doing with her battle with cancer.... She is one strong person and God will help her through this... Im so glad she has a best friend like you and prayer is so important.... Im sorry about your friends mother thats on her death bed but she will be in a better place soon.... Its hard watching people you love suffer.... Alot of my friends died from drug addiction,,, Im grateful that God spared me so I try to help people now.... Your mountaineers won so congrats on that!!!
Yeah I know Im not getting no sympathy from you regarding the Pens.. lol... I really dont like winter that much either.... I do like fall because of all the leaves changing... I will get a beautiful look at that in the morning because Im going to Lancaster to a auction... I got to speak my friends christian youth group last weekend about not giving into peer pressure... It was such a blessing from God that I was able to do that... Im sitting here watching your mountaineers play now... Looking forward to my STEELERS beating the browns this sunday...
Hi Sarah - enjoy your friends and acting foolish for as long as you can. Cherish the moments. In the past few years I have lost friends and family and miss the good times we had. Daughter Gail fell down our apt. steps last week and is nursing a badly bruised ankle and sore thigh. My knees are acting up with the new fall weather, so we are both not in great shape. As of yesterday, Shane still had no feelilng in his legs - I hope the surgery helps that, I'd hate to see him in a wheelchair - that would be awful. Roobby had a 2-pg. spread (photo and article) in NASCAR Illustrated this week. Interview was interesting, not very enlightening though. Stuff we already knew. He was very candid about his team, etc. Do you like the pink car? At least we will be able to see it on the track, it's the 07 for RG at Charlotte (but you knew that, I'm sure). Have fun at the parade, etc. I am hoping that our Phillies clinch the title and we can have a celebration like a couple of years ago. Joan
Hi sarah my pens to a little rough start... I think we will miss Gonchar on the power play this year... I went down to the new pens arena a couple of weeks ago to see the Chris Tomlin concert... Its alot nicer than the igloo.... God Bless and have a great week!!!!
Hi Srah thanks for the link, I just feel so bad that it happened. Had he been able to stay in NASCAR perhaps this would not have happened. Did you know Carl's backflip was originally Shane's - Carl saw him do it after a win and he decided to copy it. I felt Shane had a lot of promise, now he may be disabled for life, what a waste of talent. Joan
Hi Sarah - the race was good until Tony pased Clint. Glad Tony won, felt really bad for Clint however, since his win was literally taken away from him and he is still 12th (I think). My new blog on my page is about Shane Hmiel -poor guy, he just got back into the sport and this tragic thing happened. I hope he recovers, but the news release does not sound good, he had back, neck surgery, they have him in an induced coma, and re testing. He had head injuries, as well. What a horrific thing to happen to anyone. I feel bad for his Dad and family. Say a prayer for him. Joan
HI Sarah - Sorry you don't like Fords - our family has ahd chevvy's and dodges, the Dodge had the usual problem in the cold weather starts up runs a mile and cuts dead. All the Darts, chargers, etc. had the same problem. My Dad like Chryslers and they were OK, but expensive to maintain. On my Merc they had to replace the main sensor, but the dealer took care of it, so no $$ out of my pocket for the repair. It runs good, only 4 cyl., but I don't need a race car, not at my age - I did that when I was younger. I had a Ford body, a bored-out T-bird engine, a Pontiac truck clutch and a 3-1 ratio. That car ROCKED! When I turned she only slighty shimmied and never fishtailed. She was a gem, I was racing one day and I heard a snap, i BROKE THE SPEEDOMETER CABLE AT OVER 120. I was always getting warnings for going over 90 mph on the Jersey expressway and the PA turnpike. I cannot do that today, my reflexes are just not that agile. I was surprised that Robby's not racing in Calif. this weekend, I sure miss him in the car. Joan
