    start hanging out with roller derby chicks.
  • Without the "super-hip photographer" cover, sherb might not be able to pull this off, wife-wise.

    If he bought a new gun to hunt some roller skating carp out of a corvette I think Sherb can absorb all our suggestions into a mid life crisis event.

    But instead, he's going to sit on his can reading a story on his kindle. SMH.

    You guys have to understand where Sherb lives, that is why I say take up carp fishing. No divorce, no incarceration and they fight like beasts. Problem is, he never calls me to take him out for smallies or carp............his loss. Now I am too busy to mess with them, have to wait till next season I guess.

    that's the real crisis of middle age.

    By the way, I'm not falling for sherb's sly ploy to get me to get him a gift for his b-day by posting this thread with plenty of time for me to go shopping before his big day. I didn't fall off the turnip truck yesterday, bub!

    I will remedy this defect next year once I get the irrigation pump in and whatnot.
  • I think for my birthday I would like to drive a Ferrari. That would be cool.

    Do you think you could rent one?

And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    The nearest dealer is in SLC, so I doubt it. I wouldn't even know where to begin.

    In place of the Ferrari, do you have any small tracks up there that have a race driving school. You could take a day course then a few laps in whatever they have for the school.

    Yeah that actually sounds cool. I am pretty sure they do that in Fontana, a wonderful city. Truly one of the 7 wonders of the world and worth the trip. :D

    They used to do it here with motorcycles, but you took the school with your own bike. Everything from dual purpose to Honda Goldwings. The next day you could enter a race of mixed bikes.

    That's cool, but I'd like something on a road racing course. Laguna Seca for example.

    Hookers and blow...what could possibly go wrong.

    You could follow my example and have four angiograms and two angioplasties during the next eight months. Believe me, it kind of makes you appreciate mid-life.

    Call them at their North American Headquarters in Englewood Cliffs, NJ at 201-816-2600. Ask to speak to the Marketing Director. Explain your interest. He can make this happen.
