It's Pinewood Derby time!

Yes, it's that time of the year again, just before NASCAR gets started the Cub Scouts roll out their own cars and race. This year the boys designed some pretty simple cars so naturally I decided to wait until the last moment to help them cut them out. Curly went for the two tone paint job and a arrow shape.

Pinky's design looked more like an airplane wing. It was going to have a Elvis theme but artwork got messed up and he decided to do something else. I'd take a picture but it's still in the paint shop.

Practice runs were Monday night and naturally we went all Nascar and ran our cars in primer. No need to give away our speed secrets early! Yea I said, we are running a bit behind. The race is tomorrow night and the paint is still drying but don't worry, we'll make it.

This one is for KB in Lincoln. I told him all of our snow was gone but I was wrong. Still a bit south of town in the ditches. Still it's way less than they have up there. Looks like tomorrow is going to be a messy one with a bit of snow. Wonder if I'll be able to get the MTB out in the fresh snow.........
