Talking

Good on you for getting back on the horse. I know from personal experience how difficult that can be. April 16th I was crashed into on the track and broke my hand. At my age it took quite a while to heal and more time to justify going back to the scene of the crime. Now, 6 months later, I can't get enough track time. Guess I'll go tommorrow. Blackhawk Farms in Rocton,IL. YEAH!!! Their doing videos of us.YAHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
