Sunny Track Day 4-7-12
Scott and I went to the track (Ridge Motorsports Park) in Shelton today. It was a great day with the sun shining. I talked with one of the owners for a while today. Both owners are always there and help out. It’s really great to talk to them and see that they are just regular guys who had a dream and they are making it come true.
Today it was a Porsche Club event. We saw so many people we know. I haven’t been at an event for a long time (years) so it was really nice for me to see all of these people. I was also introduced to a lot of people who supported us through the last 6 months. I was able to thank them in person. There were a few tears.
The boy that I mentioned in the last blog. The one who died shortly after clinic where he was receiving his life saving treatment was shut down. I met his sister at the track today. We talked and I could tell that she still feels the pain. He died about 20 years ago. But in the end I know she felt good talking about her brother with me. I also talked to a man whose good friend’s daughter had discovered something with T-Cells. It is a way to clone t-cells that will fight cancer cells. They clone then and then reintroduce them into the patient’s body. They can also use t-cells from infants and clone them and use them to fight cancer. She is only 28 and has done this amazing thing. She is in medical journals and has patents on her developments. It sounds like the same type of thing that my cousin’s husband is getting in Houston. Of course all of this is experimental at this time but it sounds interesting and promising.
Well tomorrow is Easter. It’s already different this year. Scott and I took down the Easter stuff the other day. We took down Easter baskets. Richard and Kathryn have special Easter Baskets that they have used for 13, 14 or 15 years. This is the first year I won’t be filling their baskets with little treats and some kind of small but special gift. It’s the first year they won’t hunt for their Easter baskets. We didn’t dye Easter Eggs. That would have been something Kathryn and I would have done and Richard and Scott would step in and do one or two. Richard isn’t coming home for Easter. He really needs to get a great deal of work done at school and he will be down next week. I’ll give him his Easter basket then. I will be stuffing some plastic eggs for tomorrow. At the track today they had plastic eggs hidden about for us to find. I thought that was a nice touch.
Life is changing and I just have to roll with the punches.
