It was a cold one on Monday as we were all shivering at the bus stop in the morning. The day went smoothly, I was able to get some writing done and was able to get some work done in the studio afterwards.

Today we’re all about racing action from this past weekend and tomorrow we’ll visit with another top finisher from Allentown and meet a pair of drivers who are t eaming up this year at Woodhull Raceway. One with a ton of laps there and one with just a handful so come back for that and more.

I’ll be in the studio for most of the day today and already have a few things set up and will be looking to do even more.

I had a nice day on Friday as Allie and I shot some baskets in the driveway before heading out to the Liverpool Girls JV basketball team crush their opponent. Now we see why Allie came up short on making that team but she has made the unified team for Liverpool and will start to see actual game action within a few weeks. She is psyched and gonna try again next year.
