Thanks for the well wishes!
Here's hoping that as you get older you get faster!
Happy Birthday Chris!
Or at least wiser!
Yeah, if my speed matches my age, I'll have doubled my time slip.
Some of you know I'm a Cubs fan, and there's no better way for me to spend time in the garage than with the crackling sound of an AM radio and the pace of a ball game for background ambiance. Last fall, my all-time favorite radio, a Grundig AM/FM Shortwave, took a header off of a shelf in the garage, and while I've been able to milk it along, it's not been the same. It's very tough today to find a radio that can pull in AM stations really well - that end of the circuitry has taken a back seat to FM in recent years.
Well, Kate took notice of my fumbling around with the remains of my old radio, and took it upon herself to hunt up a replacement.
"Wow, this one has a built in alarm!", I said.
"Yep", she said, "That way, we won't sleep through the sunrise at Bonneville".
And this coming from a woman who, left to her own devices, will gladly lounge around in bed until 10:30 on a Saturday.
I raise my glass to all of you. Keep building, keep racing, go fast, have fun, and keep on keepin' on!
