Inside of me there is a young man saying "WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED".Just because it takes me all day to do what I use to do all day ,does that mean I'm old? I can remember when I thought 35 was old.

Sounds like most are already here, including me. But I've only been here about 6 years and I'm still learning so much from these old f***s and as much the young whipper-snappers (that's old too).

I'm a fart but maybe not a old fart to other old farts. Always thought this was fun. It's a real thing...


I take no responsibility on antics.

Really liked this guy, I bugged him a lot. Super super good guy. Did I say he's a good guy.


Dave probably had/has the most early fl/national roundy-round racing playbills squirreled away that I've ever seen.
