My Slow Little Thing

I will be driving to Lost Wages (Las Vegas) on the morrow. Some have told me to be careful since the CHP (California Highway Patrol) are no longer giving warnings on Thunder Road (I-15). I do not think they can catch me! Well, Mr. Motorola may be faster than me but not by much. It will be interesting. Bonzi!

Since I have no points any more, I can get 2 points on my driverís license and still drive.

The only problem is the heating system. My wife will be in the car. Rats. She thinks a car should have a heater that works. The people in Italy do not understand this. Oh, well. The outside temperature will be in the 30s or 40s. There is no need for a heater. At my speed, my body is generating enough heat to keep me warm, not her. What am I to do.?

Happiness is driving a 550 Maranello.

Well, Bart,...since you'll be "on fire" driving your beauty, you should be emanating enough "heat" to make your wife happy ??? If that is not enough, just bring along somekind of blanket to keep her happy. Have fun. w/ smiles Jimmy

Well, it rained, snowed, and a little bit of hail. Boy, I am glad I did not drive the sweet thing on its DRY tires. That would not be fun.

My wife & I did simulate the Las Vegas economy. I am EVIL. Our wonderful President told all of us not to go to that city. I did. Having asked many of the workerws what they thought of his comments, many were not happy with their senator. I think he may have some trouble this Nov.

My hotel had only 50% occupancy(sp).

Bart,
The faster a Ferrari travels, the less visible it becomes.
