I love coming to Colorado Springs…we know so many great people here that every night is a party. Well, maybe not a party, but at least good conversation. Since we got in to town, we’ve spent every evening with a different friend catching up and telling stories.
Last night, I got to visit my friend Mel, or Roxy, or Cookie…it doesn’t really matter what name she goes by (although Cookie is the dog) she is a hoot! She and I have a couple of things in common, we are both part of the racing scene, we both make lousy spectators, and we are both in to upcycling. Although, I have to be honest, she actually does it, I just plan to do it. Their little two bedroom home is adorable, every room is remodeled and painted and there are pieces of previous junk that have been made to be beautiful everywhere. It was a great evening for some lively conversation, thank you so much to both Mel and Robert, and Cookie, after last night, who could forget Cookie.
The night before, we stopped by Crade and Michelle’s to visit with them and their boys. I love those little guys, Corben is so serious and studious, and he doesn’t miss a beat; Riley has the most expressive face, filled with freckles and an infectious smile. So nice to be able to sit and relax with a TV and a couch, we just never get that part in our life. Thanks also for putting up our Josh, while the “condo” was in for repair.
The night before, the night before, we had a few drinks with a true American Badass. JT Taylor is a legend in offroad racing, many of my friends admire the hell out of JT, and with good reason. He’s pretty cool.
The best part of the last three nights are the stories, we all have common friends and common events that we can share. To be able to tell the stories that come with our lives to people who can relate is one of the greatest things about our lifestyle. In addition, the next three nights will be just as great as the rest of our friends come out to the race track and compete, I am really looking forward to seeing them all, it’s like a family reunion every event weekend. Whoohoo…I’m ready for some racing.
