With the rain gone and the sun shinning today, what are the odds of you hearing a mower running ?
My take on Dale Earnhardt jr announcing his retirement is this. He was great at being Dale Jr. I can’t imagine anyone doing a better job of being the son of a legend. No matter what he did, it could never be enough and he was smart enough to realize that. His father was his father, a flawed but never to be duplicated icon. Jr never tried to be his father which makes him smart. He seems to be a man who is comfortable in his own skin and that’s what makes him appealing and popular
Win MerleFest tickets on the Radio this morning !
Quote of the Day: “If I had done everything I’m credited with, I’d be speaking to you from a laboratory jar at Harvard”…Frank Sinatra
