sunday afternoon

we actually had sunshine today though the wind was fairly stiff and cool. tim mowed the lawn, took a phone call and told me that as we were expecting company i should get "spiffied up".
about an hour later several very nice people pulled up in front of the house and unloaded this:

mikey dancer is on his way to making a name in stock car racing. his finish last season prompted some upgrades and an 'let's go for it!' attitude for this season. he and his crew were on their way to lexington for the debut run of his new car when they stopped to give us a look.
mike's mother works with tim and long story short.....


this will be the 3rd year with my name on mikey's car.

we hope this season brings safety and success for mikey and the crew!!

how did i know this would get everyone's attention??
no, i've never been to a race track in my life - unless you count the oval at blue earth where we used to do the family reunions-
mikey's mom works at linden court, mikey would drop in, tim has this ability to talk to anyone about anything and as he and mikey chatted tim offered some sponsor $$ - if you'll put my wife's name - - on the car. and here we are.

We need to donate money for "Ilona Jordison" patches for his jackets, hats, and all other kinds of merchandise. You could become a cult figure on the racing circuit...
