Track persona activated, for the weekend The Punk shall be known as Michelangelo.

Started raining about 04:45 as so far still dry. Lots of rain in the forecast for this weekend, will be a good test of the factory seal on this thing.

Picked up 2 cu. yards of dirt for the raised beds I built for my wife's planting obsessions. My little harbor freight trailer didn't like it too much, luckily I didn't need to go on the highway at all.

Also managed to back the trailer up my uphill, curvy driveway. Even needed 4x4 there as it's quite steep and I was going back and forth a lot to get the bloody trailer lined up .

Great race even though the National Anthem got butchered
Who sang it? I know they say it's a hard anthem to sing/remember but I've seen grade school kids do a better job than these celebs. 🤦‍♂️

Ranger is now just over 95,000kms trouble free... it keeps doing everything it's asked to without a complaint :)
The little 2L biturbo engine continues to impress with how well it tows.. this bobcat & trailer weighed in around 3200kg/7000lb and it pulled it along very well.

I am with you there. The anthem was not meant to be accompanied with a guitar. To her credit at least her effort wasn't disrespectful. So many artists try to make that song something that it is not. Call me an old curmudgeon, but just sing it the way it was meant to be. At least it was not Rosann Barr screaming it out. Actually the kindergarten class singing is not a bad idea. The Bristol nascar race has the drivers children sing it, and it is inspiring.

This was my 36th time attending the Indy 500. I miss Gomer (Jim Neighbors) singing back home again in Indiana, but not Florence Henderson singing anything.:wink: May God rest their souls.

The race was a good one. The late red flags were better than finishing the final laps under caution. Indy car does not use NASCAR style green, white, checkered finishes but we got a green flag finish none the less.

Congratulations to Joseph Newgarden. He seems like a good guy. Grown men crying about winning a race shows how much it means to them. Life changing event, even for a multi time series champion.

One final thought. Pouring milk over your head is a funny tradition. :crackup:

Stopped and helped a turtle across the road. This is just down from my drive. Somebody smashed a turtle in the spot last year.
