Waiting For Chirstmas

I so remember the Christmas Eves of past when it seemed like an eternity waiting for the time to unwrap presents left by Santa.  This photo was taken by my father about 50 years ago (modified in Photoshop) and it portrays my two wonderful sisters waiting patiently to attack the pile of gifts.  Just like my parents, Kelly and I still celebrate on Christmas Eve to keep the tradition alive in our family.

Like I Said Santa

I cropped and did some Photoshop work on this image originally of a family taken by my niece Amber. What a perfect catch this was for Amber.

The Need For Speed

Fontana, CA - Autoclub Speedway was the location for my race car ride along.  Kelly purchased my ride along as a gift earlier in the year.  Today, I sat in the passenger seat of Car 11 as we made our way around the track numerous times reaching speeds up to 172 mph.  It was quite the experience for sure.  I now have a new appreciation for the NASCAR drivers I watch each weekend.

"Let's go racing boys!"

About this photo:

Seal Beach Pier, CA (January 2011) Interesting tracks in the sand. One small plastic trash can caused a 2-ton truck to alter it's path. Makes you wonder what impact one individual can have on a multitude. Speak out.
