Thanks Farzaan, but I must agree with you: softer indexes for Ladies is a
very silly, silly thing. I don't really understand the premise, myself. Does
anyone know what that's all about? In real life, Gary Milligan was fastest
on the PAX, followed by Joe Cheng. I'll gladly accept third fastest, though.
:) "Next time" (I'm still floating, so I'm pretending that there will be a
next time), I'll have to work a lot harder at psyching Gary and Joe out.
They're a pretty tough pair.
But you know what the best part was? My whole life, especially back in the
day when I was driving a Lotus 7, I used to think, you know, if I could just
one day beat Karen Babb, or even come CLOSE, that will be the happiest day
of my life. On Saturday alone, I beat her by EIGHT SECONDS! Isn't that
Thanks to Joe Cheng for this truly most amazing gift, and to him and Gary
both for such great sportsmanship, humor, support, and fun.
By the way, thanks to my Canadian friends for such a fabulous event. It
really was a pleasure to meet people I had only known previously in
cyber-space. I hope to see you all one day in Topeka! But most of all,
thanks to my secret "posse" for tricking Gary and Joe into believing they'd
have to make their runs Saturday afternoon with the muffler. That was a good
one, and I can't believe they really fell for it!
