Flash Back Friday!

Here is a little bit of local racing history. This was uncle Darrell getting ready for a trophy dash race in 1974 at Port Angeles Speedway in Washington State. Man these cars looked heavy, one big hunk of steal. Some of the best memories have come while sitting in the stands on the weekends watching the number 12 race around the track, bumping, pushing and sometimes spinning out of control. Who can forget the smell of the rubber burning off the tires, that is one of best smells to a young kid dreaming to race someday, LOl!

Goodbye Uncle Ross

Uncle Ross and his sisters.
Uncle Ross and Aunt Vi.

Uncle Ross and my mother.

On Tuesday my uncle Ross Arnold died in southern California. He was full of vigor and fight. I really enjoyed his war stories, Life stories and how he had done it all. I guess if you have lived as long as he did you just might have. I had come to know him better while he stayed at my parents home for a while. I know that God's got his hands full now, LOL! We will miss you Uncle!

Here the beagles are passed out after a long weekend in the Spokane Valley visiting Family! This is rare that they sleep so close to each other. They usually don't like to touch each other while sleeping,

Hey, don't take my pitcher I just woke up!

Mothers Day!

Well this mothers day was another day filled with good memories for mom and aunt Patti. I know that she is having a ball in heaven with all of the family! I hope that we can continue this tradition on mothers day, we had one of moms favorite dinners and talk about her and the things the taught us. We fixed fish, prawns and Fry's. I hope that she putting in a good word for us in heaven, LOL! We miss the both of you!

Monte, Julie, Steve and Buck!

If roses grow in Heaven, Lord pick a boquet for me~Place them in my Mothers arms & tell her they're from me. Tell her that I Love her and that I miss her & when she turns to smile~place a kiss upon her cheek & hold her for awhile~Because remembering her is easy~I do it everyday~There's an ache within my heart that will never go away. Happy Mother's Day!
