On April 16, 2016 we celebrated the 69th birthday of Steve Brooks, 'alias unelected President of the Horses Asses'.   His favorite number "69" is and therefore his favorite birthday.   

Here you see the old man along with his lovely wife, Mary and daughter, Erica.  Erica was able to organize this party as a surprise to the old man.Also, there was son, Brian, Daughter-In -Law, Melissa and grandson Jackson.  The little girl next to the old man actually likes him.  We all warned her!!!

Erica and her band, "THE SOUND OF ONE HANDLING CLAPPING" were the musical entertainment.  As you can see Jackson liked the stage.

Hell, we even drove 69 miles per hour to get there!

Finally a he got trophy.   It has been a while.....  Who gets a trophy for getting old?????

He got 69 bottles of beer.  Of Course, it was Keystone Light.  We did not get a picture and he took the beer home so I suspect it is gone.


Another drivein was held.  This time at the EL DOS DE OROS in Scott CIty, Kansas.     The count was 28 participants and several cars drawing attention outside. DID WE SEE YOU THERE ???   Some group pix.

How about we go inside?

How about some idividual car pix???   New Paint on 68 Charger!!!!

"SIR SOUNDS LIKE ONE PLUG WIRE LOOSE".   At least there were no tools sticking out of the grill.  There was a melted flashlight under the hood.  What do they do in Colorado that makes them so forgetfull???

One of my girlfriends cars.  Hell no I did not pay for that!  I don't have to buy girlfriends.

If you look in the background you will note there was some lying going on.   Car shows on the way!


Mar 13, 2016

Always the first run in this area is Rush Center.  That samll town of about 175 (est.) blossoms to well over a 1,000 for the 20th Annual Car and Antique Tractor Show.  I did not get pictures of the 100 plus cars, tractors, and motorcycles, but did enjoy the celebration and food.  It was a little wet and cool but that did not slow the crowd down.  We brought  7 cars and stopped by the Cozy in Ness City on the way home. PANORAMIC above, WHAT YOU THINK?

SIX of those guys were trophy winners, Charles Purma, Jerome Berning, Kenny Snow, Charles Modlin, Rex Grothusen, of Scott City, Kansas, and Norman Parker of Dighton, Kansas.  Poor old Jake Brooks and his 1966 Mercury were passed over by the awards presenters.  But the winners let us go to the bar with them.
