{ Rayce and the Boy Scout "pinewood-derby"}

1- Drive 2 hours to Grandpa's house to get "professional-help" on first DERBY car..

2- Go to Grandpa's friend's "awesome" wood shop and cut out the car yourself...(don't tell MOM until your done cuz' she would have a panic-attack about loss of....
Limb & Blood & Life and would NEVER of let you do it...)

3- Have Grandpa make you 2 SPAM, Yes, I said SPAM, sandwiches before you get back on the road for the trip home...
(SPAM?!!....between you and me....can you say..BARF-O-RAMA)

4- Get Home and go out to your Dad's "awesome" Art-Studio and paint your car...and put the #4 on it for your fave Q-B...BRETT FAVRE...
(your Mom's Boyfriend)

5-Go to the "pinewood-derby" the next day and win 1 of the 20+ races.....go home with "Best Engineered Car" award...
(note to self, get picture of him with the award)

6- Go to Sonic after the Pinewood Derby with Dad & Mom and get a Root Beer-Float and exclaim loudly .. ..."each slurp I take of this float is better than the last one"
( LOVE this boy)

7- Go to sleep with lots of great memories of making a car with your Dad and Grandpa...
and who cares if ya didn't win the whole thing...
You got 2 SPAM sandwiches and Root Beer Float out of the whole deal...

8- Give Mom a huge pat on the back...as she's going through her last stages of grief...
and letting go
that D-Riv can't do these things with his brother....
but still being HAPPY for Rayce...
and being HAPPY for the things D-Riv CAN do, like his MAD-SKILLS on his Nintendo DS and the Wii...
(I'm getting there...only 2-3 tears were shed...baby-steps....baby-steps...)
