ONCE UPON A TIME MANY YEARS AGO !

Once upon a time .. many years ago .. from early 1972 until June of 1974 .. I assisted as a pit crew member at NASCAR races .. on the below racing car ..

WHAT A RIDE IN THIS LIFE THAT STINT WAS!

Patti and I were at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum last December 19th, 2012 .. and we two spent a most enjoyable hour or two re-living a long-ago part of my life!

You think the waves from the Bay of Bengal crash upon the shore here in Pondicherry .. try being in the pits at a NASCAR race when YOUR car comes ‘flying’ in for a 20-second stop!

Where was I when the above happened to me?

Got it .. some French words for you all .. from the French section of Pondicherry ..

I only expect ‘Zilla and his lovely wife ‘kleinerbar’ to ‘get’ the below photo ..

For about some 37 years here I thought it was a German word!
