Bummer, Chuck & Ed, I'm going to have to miss the entire thing. I hadn't responded with hopes of partial attendance, but I have something pressing on Monday that I have to prepare for (and no, it's not Sandy).

Elcin,

Sorry to hear you won't be able to attend. Try to get to Climb to the Clouds 5 next June. That event just keeps getting bigger and better. Hopefully this will develop into an annual event as well.

We had a pretty great day today. We drove along a twisty path, stopped in a couple of small towns and left plenty of time for bullsh*tting (my favorite pastime).

Oh, and Simon Kirby hauled our asses, in pairs, around Lime Rock in an M3, sideways, much of the time

It was a pleasure.

I'll see the group tomorrow for the mural ... and then it's Sandy Shmandy prep time

"Sandy" Bruce Springsteen

Sandy, the fireworks are hailin' over Little Eden tonight
Forcin' a light into all those stony faces left stranded on this warm July
Down in town the circuit's full of switchblade lovers, so fast, so shiny, so sharp
As the wizards play down on Pinball Way on the boardwalk way past dark
And the boys from the casino dance with their shirts open like Latin lovers on the shore
Chasin' all them silly New York virgins by the score

Sandy, the aurora is risin' behind us
Those pier lights, our carnival life forever
Oh, love me tonight, for I may never see you again
Hey, Sandy girl... my baby

Now the greasers, they tramp the streets or get busted for sleepin' on the beach all night
Them boys in their high heels, ah Sandy, their skins are so white
And me, I just got tired of hangin' in them dusty arcades, bangin' them pleasure machines
Chasin' the factory girls underneath the boardwalk, where they all promised to unsnap their jeans
And you know that Tilt-a-Whirl down on the south beach drag? I got on it last night and my shirt got caught
And it kept me spinnin', they didn't think I'd ever get off

Sandy, the aurora is risin' behind us
Those pier lights, our carnival life on the water
Runnin', laughin' underneath the boardwalk with the boss's daughter
I remember, Sandy girl... my baby

Sandy, the waitress I was seein' lost her desire for me
I spoke with her last night, she said she won't set herself on fire for me anymore
She worked that joint under the boardwalk, she was always the girl you saw boppin' down the beach with the radio
Kids say last night she was dressed like a star in one of the cheap little seaside bars, and I saw her parked with her lover boy out on the Kokomo
Did you hear, the cops finally busted Madame Marie for tellin' fortunes better than they do?
For me this carnival life's through-- you ought to quit this scene too

Sandy, the aurora is risin' behind us
Those pier lights, our carnival life forever
Oh, love me tonight and I promise I'll love you forever
Oh, I mean it, Sandy girl

"Sandy" as sung by John Travolta in Grease

Stranded at the drive-in
Branded a fool
What will they say Monday at school?

Sandy can't you see I'm in misery
We made a start now were apart
There's nothing left for me
Love has flown all alone
I sit and wonder why-yi-yi-yi
Why, you left me oh Sandy

Oh Sandy baby someday when high-yi school is done
Somehow, someway, our two worlds will be one
In heaven, forever and ever we will be
Oh please say you'll stay oh Sandy

Sandy my darling you hurt me real bad
You know it's true but baby you gotta believe me
When I say I'm helpless without you
Love has flown all alone
I sit, I wonder why-yi-yi-yi
Why, you left me oh Sandy

Sandy, Sandy, why-yi-yi-yi-yi
Oh Sandy

On our way home. The visit to the mural was great. Sam Posey came by to say hello.

Sandy did not effect us. It was overcast all day but we did not see any rain.

Just got home. Holy @$*# !

We go away for the weekend and come home to what seems to be every last politician in the state having gone insane. The entire state is in a freaking panic because it's going to rain tomorrow in New Jersey. I mean, yes, Massachusetts has a known history of electing morons, but this is beyond the pale.

DSX - I was never a fan of Springsteen and John is too busy chasing pilots!

Hope that everyone made it home, safely!

Apologies for the unstable recording and goofy exclamations, throughout the video, but I had to post it for you.

Let me understand this scenario. You had the Porsche taking up the rear and then you stick him off to the right of the scene in no mans land? Something is wrong with that picture!

I wish we were able to make it this weekend. It looks like you had a very good time.

Hey, I didn't line them up. And at least I didn't Photoshop him out of the picture!

The Cayman was the perfect car to be at the end of the line because it was red. As the lead car I could look in my rear view mirror and when I saw the red car (in a sea of black and gray cars) at the end of the line I knew the group was intact.
