I knew he was old, but never dreamed he was THAT OLD!!
Deb and I met up with him and his friends yesterday at the track (Heartland Park Topeka). He was there with his Mustang for some road course fun.
Here I am trying to mind meld with him to go faster!
He came in for a break and I thought it was my turn to go out, but TBG's friend Dean muscled his way into the passenger seat. Next time.....
Deb and I left the track and went to pick up the food and cake. We got back and totally surprised The Big Guy! I barked out over the intercom that we were having a party and everyone was invited. The corner workers, EMTs and other track workers all came in along with the drivers. Friends and family showed up too. I was especially happy to see Raj and his peeps show up--all the way from KC! People who couldn't make it were given the "suggestion" to call, text or email TBG between 5-7pm. His phone was busy! We all wished TBG a happy 50th.
Here are a couple of his gifts.
M&M's with his goofy mug printed on them
A couple Gator items from Jeb's buddy Kodiak. I am soo gonna use that scratcher!
and here's a shot of TBG talking to his friend Arnd as he was calling from Germany!!
The "OLD" guy was pretty happy and I think Deb and I did a great job planning and implementing the party.
and for those that are gearheads as well as dog lovers, here's some in-car video of "grandpa" out on the track.
