My claim to fame (kind of)

So Captain (actually I believe he's a sergeant) Kirk dropped by tonight and took my grandpa to dinner. He'll be shipping out to Iraq in a few days and has spent the last several months training in some desert around here. Since I had thought that all this time he was already IN Iraq, it was good to see him! His job there will be a "tow-truck guy." He's responsible for repairing tanks/vehicles/whatever else and fixing broken things which is right up his ally. Before being called up to go to Iraq he worked building custom cars (think "American Chopper" but with cars.) He talked of welding and really enjoyed it. Anyways so one of the cars he helped build is featured on the cover of this month's issue of Road and Track. It's the new Eclipse concept car. This is a link for you just in case you don't happen to have the Road & Track issue handy. ;-)
