Have you ever set out to accomplish a goal, and somewhere in the middle of working on it realized you were actually getting something else done that was much more important? That is happening to me, this website, and to some of our contributors I think.

In our recent Veterans Day challenge I asked that you all get out that day and not leave any Vet unappreciated, to touch as many as you could. Jeff answered that challenge. Here are his words:

“I took the challenge. Vets day my son and I were off for the deer woods. Stopped the Cherokee Pass Restaurant had breakfast, paid and left a 100.00 bill with this waitress with instructions that all the vets that I could buy a coffee or breakfast for the money should eat /drink free. It’s a little thing but it still was the right thing to do. Cheers, Jeff”

Jeff, Thanks man. You are top notch, and thanks to all of you that answered that challenge in your own way. You are good people.

To say the least, this gives me ideas of the good we can do in the world while we do the goofy things we do.  I am also finding out that listening to you guys leads to good things, so give it some thought and send me your ideas of how we can touch peoples lives in a positive way, besides just making them smile.

Three words come to mind here, Boogity…. Boogity….Boogity!

There is nothing like a day of NASCAR racing, with 150,000 of your closest friends. The sounds, the smells, and if you are in the cheap seats… picking the chunks Goodyear tire rubber out of your ears and nose. Oh yeah.

This first picture is one of my favorite DWH pictures yet, because of the 6 people pictured, 4 of them have absolutely no earthy idea what is going on… whatsoever.  That is DWH at its best. On top of that, Okie has that “I am the king of DWH pictures and cannot be beat” smile on his face. Okie has pictures in the gallery from other races. Great stuff.

Thanks Okie and Sline, and a big thanks to everyone in that picture for being a good sport and not reporting Okie to track security!

Lets see what you can come up with, and make Okie work a little harder!
