Thread: A gloat of a different kind...if I may.....

    A gloat of a different kind...if I may.....

    My oldest son and I need a father-son outing. So yesterday, he came over and we made reservations.

    March 16, 2012 we fly to Knoxville, TN for the Nationwide and Sprint Cup races at Bristol, TN on March 17th and 18th.

    Somebody poked me about the noise. I just informed them that there is an On-Off switch on sound processor for the left ear and for the hearing aid on the right ear.

    The boy promised to buy me a beer.

    Nice! That should be a great outing.

    No pesky uncomfortable ear muffs for you, I reckon!

    Sounds like you have a wonderful relationship with your son, just as I have with Glenn. Isn't it wonderful!!!!!

    Enjoy your outing.

    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    That should be great fun for you and your son! I'm a NASCAR fan, but have never seen a race live. Bristol is one track I'd like to visit for a race sometime. I live about 2.5 hours south of the Atlanta Speedway and still haven't been there!

    Oh, well - one day!

    Been to Bristol many times. Back before it was popular to be a NASCAR fan, you could walk up to the window and buy tickets. My guess is, you will love it.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.
