I was just going to say, “Dem Duke Boys make it look easy.”

I wonder how fucked up their backs are?

Also, recently met Schnieder and Wopat. They liked my slouch hat. Nice guys. If your my age, a boy, and played with cars at all, you pretty had to spend a portion of your life throwing cars off ramps hollering “yeehaw!”

The driver definitely has something to eventually tell the grandkids on one of many, many visiting days in the hoosegow.

Great start in life, bonehead.

There are many things I like about Austin. The reckless stupidity of most of the drivers isn’t among them.
