Well, that is not me.

It is, however, NASCAR.

With few accidents, flat tires and a fifth time winner, things were pretty tame.

By the way, when I first saw the picture I thought the kid was into the suds. Then, assuming the beard was Dad, I thought maybe a hash pipe of a new sort.

What the picture was originally titled had to do with noise, who was making it and where – given the track was quiet.

Apologies to the pictures subjects for seeing what wasn’t there.

Jimmy Johnson won. Fifth time.

Which got me to thinking about names. When’s Jimmy going to grow up and become Jim or Johnson or something. After 75 NASCAR wins one might think he deserves better than Jimmy.

But nothing else really fits, does it.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
