Message for Winston

HELLO WINSTON !!
HAVE YOURSELF A GREAT TIME AT MICHIGAN SPEEDWAY ON THE WEEK END !!
GARTH BARTLETT AND I WENT LAST YEAR,,GOT TO DETROIT FRIDAY AND SPENT THE DAY
AT THE HENRY FORD MUSEUM,,,JUST GREAT,,,"TRY AND GO IF YOU CAN",,,FORD COLLECTED
MACHINES AND EQUIPMENT FROM ALL OVER,,,SAW MILLS,,STEAM ENGINES,,ROUND HOUSES
AND THEY RUN 2 OR 3 SMALL STEAM ENGINES THAT WERE USED IN THE MID-WEST,,THERE
ARE ALL KINDS OF CARS,,,FORD AND OTHERS,,,PART OF IT USED TO BE FIRST FORD PLANT,,
HE ALSO PICKED UP HOMES AND BUILDINGS FROM FAMOUS AMERICANS,,,LIKE EDISON AND
WEBSTER,,,ALL GOOD STUFF,,,,FORDS PLACE IS WEST OF DETROIT 20 MI,,,AND ABOUT 70MI. FROM
THE SPEEDWAY,,,IF ITS RAINING ALL DAY,,,GO TO THE MUSEUM,,,AND VILLAGE,,

OH YES,,,THE NASCAR RACE,,,WE WERE BUSSED THERE WITH THE NAPA DEALERS THAT WE WENT
WITH,,,,,,,GUESS WHAT,,,,IT RAINED FOR THREE DAYS,,,
WE CAME BACK TO MILTON ON TUESDAY,,,WITH STORM WARNINGS FOR THE NEXT DAY,,
,,,,GUESS WHAT,,, IT CLEARED UP FOR TWO HOURS ,,AND THEY RAN HALF A RACE,,,DONE,,THAT WAY
NO RAINCHECKS,,,BAH,,,HUMBUG ,,,WE WERE GONE,,,AND --$900.00 !!
OH WELL ANOTHER TIME !! ,,MAYBE DAYTONA AGAIN,,,MAYBE WATCH T.V.

ANOTHER THING ,,IT'S BEEN SO BAD HERE,,,THAT NAPIERVILLE IS ONLY GETTING IN A FEW WEEK-
ENDS,,,,SURE HAS BEEN A WET SUMMER !!,,,YOU MIGHT SAY,,, ITS A DRAG !!

NOTE,,,THE ROADS IN AND OUT OF THE SPEEDWAY ARE SMALL RURAL ROADS AND THE TRAFFIC
IS TERRIBLE,,,THE TRACK IS NEAR THE SMALL TOWN OF BROOKLYN,,,HIGHWAY 12 E-W,,,NEAR127 N-S,,
BETTER TO GO IN REALLY EARLY,,5 OR 6, AND SLEEP THERE,,,,THE SAME THING COMING
OUT,,,LAST YEAR,,A TERRIBLE DAY,, IT TOOK US 5-6 HOURS FROM TRACK BACK TO OUR
HOTEL IN DEARBORN,,,70 MI. ,,SOOOO GOOD LUCK TO YOU !!
MAYBE BETTER TO GO 94 W,,,& DOWN 127,,,TO 12,,,,,,,WHATEVER,,,
YOU PROBABLY HAVE PLANNED IT OUT ALREADY,,,,GET YOUR MOTOR RUNNIN !!

P.S. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR PICTURES OF YOUR TRIP,,,,I ALWAYS WANTED TO DO
ROUTE 66,,,,YOUR PICTURES MADE IT COME ALIVE !!! JUST GREAT,,,SUPER !!

HAVE A GREAT WEEK-END,,,,HAPPY TRAILS TO YOU !! BYE,,,JOHN G.
