Lindsay and I were in the truck waiting on Shay before we headed off to the lake. We had been talking about a dog interview on Dooce, and decided to do our own interview. Originally, I was interviewing Lindz with Shay in the background, but having Shay run through the background was a bit more than I could handle ( you can see that in the second video). Even with Lindsay interviewing you can hear her voice quivering.
The blooper video

I showed up a little late in the afternoon. My plan was to take pictures of all my buddies racing. But...I kinda got caught up in the racing myself! It was all free of charge, after you completed the race you just got back in line for another round and another chance to drive faster and better. Not only was I obsessed with beating my own time, but Kristie was riding with me. She increased the fun factor 10X. We screamed and laughed all through the course. (She videoed too, but I'm having trouble up-loading the files.) Anyhow, here's a few pics that I did take...
The line. There was a lot comparing times, ribbing, and general bragging going back and forth.
Kristie's son, Zack, waiting in line behind us. He had the second best time for the whole day.
A minivan taking a tight turn on the course. I was really fascinated with the idea of racing minivans. I called my brother several times to come by and race his - or at least let me race it! The cones were laid over purposely to point you in the right direction.
The score board. Notice all the cars in the "Sports Car" category. I listed my car in the compact category - made my score look a lot better ;)

Mom had gotten her flat fixed and passed me by this time. I caught up with her and we joined Dad at the next rest stop. We had an enjoyable time riding in the drizzling rain on the back country roads. Towards the end it was getting pretty miserable. About a mile from the end of the race, I saw the helicopter fly away. I was severely bummed. But I got to meet Nat-Nat! She was worth missing the helicopter for. And my parents were fun too.
Me and my folks

Ranger's (Rat Terrier) reaction, "Bring it on!"
Zoe's (Great Dane) reaction, "Did you here something?"
Jack's (Red heeler) reaction, "Oh my gawd! It's gonna kill me!"

I came across the pictures of this trip to Grand Lake while I was searching for the picture of Taylor with his dog.
This is the counterpart to the picture of Taylor with his dog - Taylor's wife and her poodle.

With all this rain we've been getting, it was pretty sloshy for soccer today - it was perfect for soccer today! All the "slip" tackles were hilarious to watch. I slipped and fell several times myself, and then one of the girls painted mean streaks under our eyes. We were having so much fun, I was ready to play till it was too dark to see the ball. Unfortunately, I had forgotten about a previous engagement that I was already late for. I hopped in my car and roared off. Several miles out of town, the highway patrol got me. As the officer walked up to my car, my little brain was racing, "How can I get out of this one?! Maybe I can start crying...do they really fall for that?...There's no time to work tears up anyway...Think! Think!...Should I try to explain?...They never give you a chance to explain!....Ahhh, here he is." He took one look at me and said, "Whachya got mud all over you for!?!" I got off with just a warning.
