Dogs, Cars, & Easy Plastic Women

Oscar it is!

Since there were more votes for "Oscar" than any other name, the new puppy is now dubbed "Oscar"! Thanks for the suggestions. I had fun reading some of them (a few of you probably need to be institutionalized).

Carrera Slot Cars

This is probably more a guy-thing than a girl-thing. But we have a sprawling Carrera Slot Car layout in our living room and BoBo just adores it. When we're racing, he does his best to grab whatever car is speeding by. It fills him with this strange excitement, and you can see him quiver as they go by.

The first time that BoBo caught a car, he ran out of the room as fast as he could go, to "bury" it on SaurKid's bed under the pillows. We had to go rushing off to hunt it down, and now BoBo is under strict watch at all times when the cars are out.

Anyway, we were looking through the Carrera catalog, which is full of all sorts of accessories, including "Grid Girls". I'm still looking for The Groupie Set, which should match the Grid Girls very nicely.

WooHoo! I'm first! I don't have much to say... as usual, I'm rushing out the door. I just couldn't pass up this golden opportunity!

Miss you,

Mike

I found some "pit babes" by google searching "carrera slot cars".

And which "few" of us need to be institutionalized? Will this institution offer "Meatloaf Mondays"? Cause if it will then that is not so bad. As long as the meatloaf is good.

Lazy Iguana, I can only hope that if you ever get institutionalized, you will be near a computer so that I'm not deprived of you. ;o) And meatloaf can be quite tasty! Who said cafeteria food is all bad?

Uncle Joe, :D

Emma, ;o) Whew, was that a dumb movie. Kinda cute in some parts, though. It was our first introduction to the actor who plays Borat (he played the French car driver).

Mr. A/Mike, so glad you dropped in. I miss you too! We just get soooo busy sometimes, and this is the worst time of the year for me.

Saur,

The grid girls are very hot. I think my Lionel train people are gay.

Excellent post.

We had a slot car shoot off a corner into a nearby pot of fudge that was being stirred where I could see the races..LOL!

I like slot cars.

I love the puppy story, and Oscar works for a name.

I'm caught back up now. Yay!
