Recently Jimmy and I took a 3000 mile round trip to the Tail of the Dragon and other parts of the south. Here are some pictures of our adventure.

On the way to Murfreesburo:

Nice! It was great to see you at the Dragon. Though I don't think we had much talk time. There were so many new faces to meet. From the 12 last year to the 43 cars this year...and the same amount of time...yeah...lol But non-the-less, I remember seeing your car, and I remember seeing you...though I'm not sure how much we actually talked. But the car looks great!!

Where did the cat come from? That wasn't at the Ridge Top was it? Hopefully it didn't slide down the hood or anything and cause any scratches!!

I don't think we DID get to talk. :( You're right, there were so many people it's hard to meet them all. That's just the nature of these events! :) Guess I'll see you in Roswell in 2011!

The cat was at my Grand-Aunt Ginny's house in Roanoke, VA. He (she?) DID slide down the windshield and part of the hood, but I have not seen any scratches that I know of, Thank God. Of course, I haven't washed the car since the trip yet.

But if there are minor scratches I'll just have to chalk them up to battle scars from the trip...

Took me a bit to realize you meant the tag in the bud-vase. Yes, that was carried over from my previous NB, which was named "Tommy."

At B&N the other day and had to take a sunset photo with the iPhone.

Haven't posted to the thread in a while! Jimmy turns one year old today according to his birth certificate. Built 2/4/2010.

We are having a very rare SNOW DAY here in Waco today, with about 3 inches accumulated from last night. I have the day off of work and I'm celebrating Jimmy's Birthday by NOT getting out and driving in the snow!

Meanwhile, here's a picture of the dusting he got!

Happy Birthday, Jimmy! We got 14 inches of snow during our recent "blizzard" and it is snowing again. We're supposed to get 2-3 more inches today. Another one of those winters we will remember for awhile. Jimmy is looking good in the snow, Cameron. I hope we see you all again real soon.
