Smoke and the Monkey?…..

Well it’s been an interesting race season so far! Two weekends ago saw an awesome finish in the restrictor plate race. After sitting quietly mid-pack all day, Tony turned on the heat to place second…again! Last weekend Dale Jr got his first win in 47 races, with Denny Hamlin (Tony’s teammate) finishing second. And what a finish it was! Tony may have only been in the top 5 but boy oh boy it came down to the wire there between Jr and Denny! Way to keep the fans on their feet.
Jay and I were at the store buying a new power supply for Brandon’s computer (which almost liteally went up in smoke earlier in the day….boy what a stink!) and missed the pre-race show (can’t believe we forgot to use our new DVR to record it…doh!). Apparently Tony was there with his pet monkey Mojo. Mojo is said to have a great deal of personality and even attempted to wave off the cameras, much as his owner has done in the past, lol. Some have said this would make an interesting show….”Smoke and The Monkey” (pun on Smokey and the Bear). I think he would drive a bit better than Burt Reynolds and sure wouldn’t need a stunt driver!



About Wendy

I was married for 20+ years then divorced. Now with a great guy from Indy (funny story how we met!). Worked for Chase (in all it's various names and incarnations) for 18 years. No longer working thanks to a back injury back around 2000 that has led to 9 herniated discs and a major case of degenerative disc disease. That irrevocably changed my life and how I was able to live it, as well as putting an end to many of the things I loved to do (skiing, horseback riding, etc). Recently sold my home in West Islip, NY and have relocated to a brand new home in Greenwood, IN. Raised three amazing kids who I love more than my own life and have a great guy who I love and who loves me for who I am. Just got married June 2011, so when you look at what really is important, life is good!
