real quite here! Have you guys been laying low due to the crazy heat?

Mike Hope that your health is improving.....sounds like you are on the mend!

I have been busy around the house (as usual) we are converting Amanda's old bedroom in to a guest bedroom and a few things in the family room.....long way from finished.

Hope that everyone is well.

hehe your just addicted to spending money ........ If you get some cash in your pocket it won't be there long till you buy somthing els. Hey Joel how ya doing? Yeah it's been right hot lately, we haven't ran much in the past few weeks. Maybe we will run more often when things cool off.

...addicted to spending money that is a good one Ernie!! Although I think that is true of anyone that has a hobby of any kind I know it is true of me I have been looking at router table extensions for my table saw........they cost just as much as the da** saw!!! I guess I won't be getting one of those any time soon......or ever!

Glad to hear that you guys are alive and kicking so just what is an AR15? I guess I'll have to google it to find out....sounds like a military weapon of some sort!! You're not joining some sort of militia are you Scott??

So what kind of stuff are you selling Scott? RC stuff I would guess?

Sure do wish that Mike would get on here to tell us how he is doing. He wouldn't have gone off and moved or anything with out telling us all to F___ OFF or something I would hope. Mike if you are out there - say something!

Keep posting here if you guys are going to run the trucks. Especially the electrics at Scott's track so I can head out there and watch the fun.

When I was in the Navy I had to stay qualified on the M14.....that rifle was a blast to shoot!

No, no RC stuff at this time. Lianna was in a fender bender yesterday in the parking lot, have the insurance deductible to shell out.

I'll be there if I can.....so far we haven't rec'd any damage/mess from the storm - so clean-up will be minimal.

Yeah Im still alive and kicking. Just no time...for anything. Between work and driving to work it dosnt leave much spare time. Got rid of my truck and the used Prius. Bought a new Focus and a new Sonata to split the driving for work. 60,000miles a year is just to much for one car. Just what I needed, more bills. I think it would be cheaper to quit.
One cool thing is that Parker started kindergarten last tuesday. Yeah Im getting old and time is flying by. He loves it though which is good. Spend all my off time with him but we dont even mess with RC anymore. Just no intrest. Got a 1/16th Summit he drove once and a 1/16th Fiesta sitting here thats never been run. Instead we play video games or baseball in the backyard. He is already a power hitter at 4yrs old.
I dont really come out that way anymore. I avoid Chville at all cost. If I never see it again it will be to soon.

good to hear that you are still kicking Kevin. Hope that your son does well in school - enjoying it and wanting to go is half the battle.

SO - did the track wash away Scott?

I had fun the other day that I dropped in. It was good to see everyone - where was Ernie? Didn't get a chance to see him out there.
