UNOH 175 – Truck Racing

20 Sep

Lenore scored some tickets to a truck race at The New Hampshire Motor Speedway. I was here years ago so it was fun to check it out again. Nothing like a little southern culture every now and again.

The race went off without too much drama. A few spin outs but no fiberglass fragments of crushed steel.

It was a good day and we all had a great time. In the words of a true Nascar fan “That wall made out of concrete too”.

Thanks Lenore!

The lads…

Littleton MA 300th Parade

7 Sep

The boys and I attended the Littleton MA 300th Parade in Saturday. We got there early and set up our chairs in a nice shady spot. Weather man said 91 and humid!

The parade was lead off by a group of Police motorbikes.

Many bands and groups marches including this Navy troop.

Followed by a 1/2 track and tank, complete with what looks like a 50 cal.

Here’s a novel way of reusing old fire trucks. This one belongs to Wachusetts Brewing Company.

Some of the old valves were replaced with beer taps. There are very good at quenching thirst not fires!

Groton MA Minutemen Company. This marcher managed to carry his companies colors, reload, fire on command, keep step and not pass out from the heat.

Back in the day “long guns” really means long guns. If you ran out if ammo you could just prod the other lad from 4 feet away.

Lexington MA Minutemen presenting arms, aim and fire. Four muskets with 10 feet of us was quite loud. I cannot imaging what a battle field sounded like back when lobbing lead balls was popular.

Many old cars made the journey. Here are a few.

JMan wanted to run in the parade so he zipped across and back.

My friends from The Cannon Theatre had a float. Go here for more information on the theater and remember to support local arts.

Lastly, here’s a ride we will all get but don’t want.

All in all it was a great parade.

Ice this

18 Aug

How much energy does it take to make all the ice that people are tossing on them selves? Pick a charity, give out of the goodness of your heart and toss in a few extra dollars for the wasted energy and water!

I challenge you all to do something that will benefit another in a good way!

See this link for someone who shares my position:
