Things important to me.

This is about an indie movie being made about a man who was a Bishop in Detroit. One of his best friends was one of my best friends. Please just view the site. I just want people to know about it.

season ending....

mack 2014 start
Well, the Captain of KISMET told us today before the race that this was our last race of the season because he was going to have surgery on his shoulder.
We went out to race in Fall One and about 5 minutes before our start we were T-boned by a 30 square boat. She is very low to the water and her bow is very sharp. It was a bit surreal and in slow motion, but the noise when she hit us was incredibly loud. Mary fell down from the cockpit to the below deck, but other than some bumps and bruises, I think she is okay.
Mary was watching the bow of the boat pierce our side and she said that it reminded her a bit of JAWS when the shark was attacking the ORCA.
The captain of the other boat said that she never saw us. We all saw her coming at us. We were on Starboard and had right of way. So I think insurance should cover it. I am hoping that they don't "total" her.
So far this August, I am sans a car and a sailboat. Mayhaps I should just walk to things and give up vehicles.


Boats and cars...

mack 2014 start
Getting ready to go on the Night race, which oddly enough is raced at night. I am hoping for light winds and no rain. I think we only have Art, Mary and me as crew.
I heard from my insurance about my car that got stuck in the flood waters on August 11. It is totaled. I still owe on it. After the assessment, there is a gap, but not as bad as I thought.
Sheesh, I wanted to get a new car this fall, but not this way.
I will let you know when I get the new one.


Ice Bucket challenge

There is this challenge going around in the US to raise money for the ALS foundation.
Here is my contribution.


well that was interesting...

So tomorrow I get to find out how much my car was worth as insurance deemed it totaled. I am hoping that they will give me much as I still owe on it.
Oh, perhaps I forgot to tell you that in the August 2014 Detroit flood,my car was overcome by water and died. I have been waiting to hear the verdict for about 9 days.
And I just found out that my sweet little nephew just nominated me in the ALS ice bucket challenge. I plan to jump into a a pool while dumping an icey cold bucket of water over my head.
Wish me luck.. and hope I don't nominate any of my LJ friends....hee-hee...

Fire arms in general

mack 2014 start
I guess in my family I am in the minority but I find fault in the fact the it is okay to open carry assault weapons into Target stores.
I gave my family the "I am okay with the " Concealed weapons" permit thing, but was shot down...pun intended.

It is just the 'my gun is bigger and faster than yours so I win" mentality that bothers me...why does this have to be the norm?

The flood waters are receding, I can find my backyard again. Many neighborhoods have all their basement furniture out on the curb for the trash because of flood damage. I am just awaiting the verdict from my insurance company on whether my car is totaled or not. If totaled, they pay it off and I get a new car ( more or less). If not, they fix it and I get a wet smelly damaged car with a 'new' engine and electric system.


Dream Cruise 2014

mack 2014 start
Once again the classic car lovers of Detroit are reliving their youth by driving up and down Woodward It wouldn't be so bad if all lanes of the road weren't solid with cars in either direction and making it sound like the pits at a stock car race. The official cruising day is Saturday. As I live only a few block east of Woodward and have no classic car.... I am getting out of town early in the morning.
