Okay before I explain why JimmyMack and I didn't make it to the NORC this year let me just say if you drove right by Bob Schilling and his Cuda after the NORC without stopping or asking if he needed any help you are a d*ck and probably own a Corvette.
Okay here's the story on why we didn't make it. We got to arguing about Corvettes and then started drinking in Vegas and remembering the days when there were Corvette owners younger then 70 and Jim passed out in the parking lot and by the time I carried him to his room I had a heart attack...
I was told I died 7 times in 20 minutes and during that time I traveled into a long tunnel with light at the end of it.
I think that was last Tuesday and at the end of the long tunnel I saw Carl and a few of our brothers who had passed on and yea Carl was holding a can of Coors....now I ain't saying anyone had wings or had halo's floating above their heads but then I saw........... Moonshine... with that thought I realized I may have went to ****0 kitty and woke up all most immediately ....I think that was on Sunday so for sure I knew I had missed the race. Then I looked for Jimmy
Sometime yesterday after my open heart surgery I woke up and realized I was in a hospital and strolled down the hallway holding my hospital gown as I was dragging my 02 bottle and MD 20-20...and I am sure you can imagine how that looked!
I happened to glance at a sign on a door just down the hallway from my room and saw that JimmyMack was in the same hospital. I walked in and saw more tubes and lines going to his body then I have since watching the Matrix. I leaned down and whispered in his ear.....
"Jimmy can you hear me?"
And he says,
"What is pink and has 7 dents?"
I thought maybe Snow White..... but more importantly I am here just to say I am sorry we missed you guys, missed the dust storm, head winds and all the fun up in Ely.
Already have a doctors permission slip to return signed by Gov. Arnold Schwartznegger so will see you all up in Ely in Sept.
No, I am not kidding. :alcoholic: :champagne: :bsflag:
