Happy Labor Day

Some of us have to work... like myself. Well it's my choice, but a choice based on productive results and timing. Timing is of the essence so often in the building trades and more often then I like my production is hindered by the Code Enforcement Office. These days of conscious energy consumption has led to changing the way building codes are enforced with what seems to be new guidelines daily. Bottom line... a building inspector has me under his thumb and magnifying glass and he'll be around tomorrow morning to scour yet another phase which is not quite complete... hence, I must bow to their whim.

Once again the sleep fairy took over during the race. No way can this 50 year old body stay awake much past 11:00 pm. So I miss the finishes of many truck races and the left coast night race... kudos to JJ for winning at home. It looks as if the Chaser's are pretty well set. It will take a DNF [practically] for Happy Harvick to get knocked out by Jr. at Richmond.

The #12 "Kodak Think:" paint scheme was way cool. Congrat's to Raymond VanderLinden of Springfield, Mo. for "Inking" Ryan Newman's Dodge and winning the Kodak contest. If there becomes a diecast of this car I will own it.

Happy Labor day to you..I liked the 12 paint scheme as well it was cool....

I can't see much changing at Richmond chase wise but it would be fun if it turned into a nail biter ala Mayfield a few years ago....

Richmond should be a case of two guys tight-roping it and 41 going hell-bent for the win. Better watch out Ears. You too Happy.
