Once again you did it! You showed us a great time and welcomed us all with opened arms. You are truly part of our family. We love you and we already miss you.
(That is for later)
O'Neil, Jessica and Andrew:
My first and most important family. Jessica and Andrew, thank you for being such wonderful, polite, and well behaved kids and you were great even with all the driving we had to do to get to Great Grandma. Jessica, you need to find a boy like the ones we have in our group. Andrew, you are such a trooper, I am sorry your birthday was not what it was supposed to be. O’Neil, thanks for all the driving, and getting us there and back safe and sound. Of course, I didn’t drive Bone Evil again this year!
I love you and next year we get to do it (no pun intended) without the kids.
What can I say about you….You are so wonderful, and it is a pleasure knowing you and being your friend. We love visiting you and your family, you always make us feel welcome. Thank you for taking Andrew and making him feel like part of the group, and allowing him to show his pimp’d side!
Paul, Laura and Victor:
Thank you for what you did for Andrew for his birthday, and thank you for the card for my Grandmother. It is an honor to be able to call you friends. I am so glad the Bullet is fixed and you got home safe. Paul, even though we razed you about cleaning your car, you are such a good sport, and the Bullet is a beautiful car. Laura, next year, I expect to see you driving the Bullet down the track! Victor, thanks for playing basketball with Andrew…..Oh and next time, Jessica will be ready for your hits!
.: Mattski! The Polisher! I am so glad that you were able to attend, and thank you for watching over Jessica.
You are still one of my boys, no matter how old you get.
: The Great White Hunter! You had the most interesting shirts, and you kept us in stitches! Thanks for helping Jessica practice her flirting techniques!
: What can I say about you Bob, thank you so much once again for taking care of the awards. They were even better than last year. You seemed to know us all so well…maybe a little too well! Thank you for coming again this year, and I am so honored to have you as my friend……Oh and thanks for the vent.
I know it took me awhile to come up with my thank yous….but it was hard to find anything nice to say about Boosty. Of course I am only kidding. Bill, you are so funny, and I loved meeting you. Thank you so much for all your help around camp, the stuff you gave O’Neil, the cake for Andrew. I didn’t know what to expect, but I am so lucky to call you friend.
Hey Potato Boy…..I think that is what everyone was calling you….I know that we could never get your name right…Damn Canadians!
Thanks for staying up late with O’Neil every night, and for opening your home to the weary travelers.
You are hereby adopted as one of my boys! You are always welcome in my home, and consider us your temp family in between your real family . Thank you for taking such great care of Jessica, and allowing her to find her wild side! I am honored to know you, and proud to call you family. Thank you for our talks, and enlightening me. You had better show up at my door for Christmas, there will be a place set for you.
Oh my word woman, you are amazing, wild, and wonderful. I am blessed to have you in my life and honored to have you in the “mom” club. You make me want to listen to country music, but only if you are singing it. You were always there, and I thank you for helping around camp, for being the second set of eyes, and for helping me shop. Your kids are so lucky to have you, and please send your daughter out our way, and I know that if Jessica goes out your way, she will be well taken care of. Thank you for making Andrew’* birthday just a little bit nicer. You are truly a lady and deserve all the respect and admiration that I have.
Take this little bit of advice from someone who has been there…..DO NOT GIVE HER THAT SWEATER!!!!!! Okay, I know we came down on you hard, but that was what the trip was all about……I am very happy to have met you. Thanks for coming, and for being such a good sport. :P
Rod and family:
Thank you for the experience of sprint car racing. It was just too much fun. Next year however, you are coming to track with us. It was a pleasure to meet all of you, and thank you for allowing us to be part of your vacation. Take care of yourselves.
I still do not believe that you are a grandfather! Thank you so much for making the trip out to see all of us. Thank you for all your hard work, and the pictures of the babies.
Mike (AWSOME VW Mike):
Thanks for all the ice, and for coming out to track and helping out.
Thanks for giving up your shotgun spot for Andrew. Thanks for the wood, and all you did around camp. And of course for making sure another one of my boys made there and back safely.
Okay young man, you are no longer allowed to make me cry!!!!
Thank you so much for coming, I know how busy you were. Please thank your parents for allowing you come, and for raising such a wonderful man. Like I said, you are what Jessica is supposed to bring home!
If I have forgotten anyone, I am sorry……..Travis, I didn’t forget you this time. For all those who made the long trip to get to this meet, thank you.
