Go Karts and Keith

Friday was a busy day. First Mike's firm had an outing to The Pit in Mooresville. This is a place that has indoor carting, among other things. There were 10 of us and we did two 8 lap qualifiers (one going the 'wrong way' on the track). This determined our starting order for our two 12 lap races. I started 9th in both races...not too impressive. This was quite a disadvantage as I was an entire straightaway behind to start. Turned out that was actually a good thing during the first race as there was a massive pile up in turn one and I just zipped right by and finished 5th. Second race, I was bumped from behind, on a straightaway mind you, from a no account coward. This spun me and I thus spent a good part of the race behind a much slower rider (I need to improve my passing skills). Finally got around him but didn't have enough laps to catch up to the punk than punted me so we could 'discuss' the earlier incident. It was loads of fun but I did end up with some pretty bad bruises on my back. I think it was just from how the seat hit me and then perhaps from a few on track incidents.

Next it was off to the Keith Urban concert. We had GREAT seats. I read a review in the paper that said that his show doesn't change much from year to year. I'd seen him about 5 years ago and yes, the show was very similar. That being said, I'd pay again to go see the same thing for a third time. He is just so damn talented. I'd go just to see him play the guitar. The man is crazy good on the guitar. So, fun times this weekend.

This is Yana in the back of the Jeep. I had the back rolled up and she could care less.

Jake Owen. He was very good too.

Susan and Lezlie, my concert buddies.

Keith out on a small platform in the middle of the floor. This was pretty much right in front of us. He did this at the last show I saw and I know that two of the three songs he sang while out there were the same at both shows.

A super sized screen...better to see that ever so handsome face with.

This was my second show of the summer and it was head and shoulders above the so called perineal Entertainer of the Year winner, Kenny Chesney.

Awesome awesome show! Although I can't believe I forgot to ask for a demonstration of the Kenny Chesney show...
