Indy 500 (26 May 2002)- An old friend from the past, Brian Burtin gives me a call out the blue. He has extra tickets to the Indy 500! Wants to know if I'd be interested in meeting up and going. You don't have to ask twice on that one!
He has great seats, front row, on the starting line. Bruce, Brian, Don and Kim.
Florence Henderson (mom on Brady Bunch) starts us out with singing.
Then the ever favorite, Jim Nabors (best known for his role as "Gomer Pyle" on the television sitcom The Andy Griffith Show, and later Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C).
What happens when the get it wrong. No towing, they lift up the whole car and bring it home.
Helio Castroneves wins again! We get to see him and the crew climb the fence, right in front of us!
Germany Trip (6-7 June 2002)- Work takes me to Karlsruhe Germany for 2 weeks. On the weekend in between we get a chance to do some sight seeing. It's sights I've seen before, but I enjoyed experiencing them again with my fellow Rockwell friends. Karlsruhe had a mammoth ferris-wheel visiting.
Schloss Neuschwanstein, the fairy tale castle used by Walt Disney to model his. It a beautiful castle.
Ulm - the tallest spire in the world, 528 ft. It's a magnificent cathedral.
AND, you get to climb up the spire! But, it's not for the faint of heart but the views inside and out are great.
Colorful houses along the Danube river.
Heildelburg - an old city town in hills overlooking the river. It has a great ruined castle where we did a group shot.
See the Americans trying to order white wine at the festival!
that's all for now!
