Rusty Wallace Race Day
a2z: the letter “n’ is for Nascar
|Race With Rusty Wallace|
Last year I had a great idea for Ed’s Christmas/Birthday gift. He’s a New Year’s Eve child so combineing gifts is not new to him. Groupon sent out a deal that seemed perfect.
What man could resist 12 laps around the track in a Nascar race car? Not mine! So I bought it, along with extra insurance!
What I didn’t know was that many other wives were buying the same deal, and all of our husbands would be driving the track at the same time.
I should have read the fine print! If I had I would never have purchased this bucket list item for my beloved.
I asked if I could return the gift. Ha! No!
So he arrived, took a class and wore this fireproof suit.
Before he climbed in he took a ride around the track with a real driver. It was so fast I couldn’t catch it on my camera. He climbed out of the car beaming like a teenage boy.
Turns out there are no doors in these cars.
No, I didn’t know that, or that the headlights are really stickers!

He’s in. He’s ready.
My stomach is knotted with explantions I will have to make to friends and family if he doesn’t come back alive.
Hey, I watch some racing! There are always crashes and burning cars!
|Ready to Race|
Here’s a badly shot video taken by a nerve wracked wife. I caught the take off’ and the wave after that my camera went in my pocket and my hands folded in prayer.
This year I think I’ll give him socks.
Have you ever given your spouse a gift you wished you hadn’t?
Would you give your spouse a dream gift that scares you?

Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering
if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin
for my comment form? I'm using the same blog platform as yours and I'm having problems finding one?
Thanks a lot!
Also visit my site ; webfresh.net
Hi, no. I'm not sure where to get one. I don't use captua it makes me crazy when I go to other sites and have to prove I'm not a robot.
Oh I love this, Diana!! What a great idea! but like you, I'd be a nervous wreck!! Someday I'd like to give my hubs a skydiving or wind tunnel coupon. =]
Wind tunnel? Now that sounds like fun to me. Skydiving not so much. 🙂
What a perfect gift! It would make me nervous, too–but he'd love it! I'm sure your husband appreciated your boldness.
Janet, he did love the gift. I'm not sure it was boldness or brainlessness though. 🙂
Maybe he'd like to go bungee jumping this year? Hangliding? No?
Valerie! Shhhhh! He doens't need any help with suggetions. 🙂
Ice climbing? Swimming with sharks?
Of course, there's always socks, or so I hear.
LOL I'm going to have to delete your comments before he gets any ideas. 🙂
(not really deleting them)
Ed Brandmeyer–ignore Valerie Comer! You love socks.
Ultimate drag race! Yes, socks is much better.
(Didn't know I had that robot stuff on, took it off.Thanks to you.)
Retha, nice to read someone feels the same about that ultimate drag race request.
Yay! So glad you removed your robot clearence. 🙂
Socks! I thought I was getting the NHRA ultimate drag race challenge.
NO!!! Ed Brandmeyer you are not getting that. Socks it is. Sorry but I love you too much to take that chance again.
I've never regretted anything I've given but I have questioned some of the requests!!! Socks are a goud thing.
Yes, I agree, socks are a nice safe gift. 🙂
