 Thursday night I got a message from Hubby's cousin...
he was going to be in Caddo Mills Saturday night...
test racing his truck....would we like to come...
Hubby hasn't seen his cousin in years....
I keep up with Hubby's cousins on face book...
well it worked out we could go...
 
 so could two other cousins and Hubby's brother....
the weather was great for racing...
not too hot...
Can you tell they are related...
 
 this is his Cousins truck...his son is the driver...
his son is the same age as our son...
first time to meet him....
 
 they are working the bugs out of it....
getting ready for racing season....
much discussion about what needed to be done...
if something needed to be tweaked or if it was good..
the one in the middle is Hubby's cousin....
it is amazing how similar mannerisms the cousins all share...
even when they haven't seen each other for years....
this is the moon we saw last night...
I should have known...
we were half way home last night...
when suddenly I realized....
my phone was missing...
I searched the truck over...
had a panic attack...it was too late to go back to the track...
they were already closed...
when I got home I tried calling my phone...
thinking a good person may have found it...
nope....so I suspended my service...
so no one could rack any Internet bills or extra charges...
I tried calling the track...no luck...
so today...I had to go get another phone...
there was a good 30 minute wait at the store...
I had my old phone...so I got a new Sims card...
put it in my old phone..until they send out my replacement...
I'm glad I had the insurance...but it still cost a pretty penny...
I went 12 hours without my phone...
it was hard...I'm used to checking my emails...
checking Facebook...checking blogger...all from my phone...
my family contacts me through text...
thank goodness the photos I have on it...were synced...
hopefully I won't loose all my phone numbers when I change over...I did sync my phone recently...
keeping my fingers crossed...
Hubby and I slept in today...8:00 for me...that is a rarity...
we are going to see Hangover 3 tonight...
we haven't been to the movies in forever...

so sorry about the phone... the photos are great and i love the ones with all the smoke and dust... the funny thing about cousins, all the males in my dad's side of the family, look like brothers and when the uncles, daddy and their sons stood together at reunions it was amazing. now all the uncles are gone and i have not seen the cousins since 06 at daddy's funeral. i have 2 female cousins and saw them then to... for some reason the female cousins don't look alike, just the males. they all stand, walk alike.

Now that was a nice surprise. Looks like it was a lot of fun and seeing family is always so awesome. So sorry about your phone :(

Ack, 12 hours without your phone! Funny how nowadays we can't live without those things. Glad you got it straightened out quickly. The truck races look like loads of fun!

You sure got some great pics!! We women tend to keep up with family more than the men do - even with their OWN family!

I am going to get me a 'grown up' phone in August. I may be next to the last person in the DFW area with an old fashioned flip phone.

Hey!! I SEE your phone! Psst! It's over there in your hand! Right hand side of your blog!
:) hope you get another RED one. That is so YOU!

I see I have been missing out on a lot. Glad you had such a nice weekend at the lake. You, Hotrod and family have been busy. I am taking a blogging break and setting up a new blog. I will not be around for awhile yet but wanted to check in on you and see what you all have been up to. Hugs, Maggie
