A Shark That's Ready to Attack

M and R finished the pinewood derby car today. They used two different colors of spraypaint so that the car would look "candy" (aka really shiny) and metalic (this paint has specks of metal in it). R actually sprayed one of the coats on it. Here he is getting ready to go paint:

Here's the finished car. Doesn't it look cool? The lighting is bad in the top picture, but it shows off the tail really nicely. The bottom pic shows the "candy/metallic" paint job. Now, we have to wait until the end of the month to see this baby race!

That car is Way Cool, Man! Gorgeous! It really "looks professional!" And I love the oh-so-serious look on R's face . . . like he's going into surgery. Can't wait to hear how well it does in the big race. That's something I've never been a party to . . . pinewood derby. I think my brother might have been involved in one is his younger days, but that was oh-so-long-ago!

And M's injured arm - gheezo, I can feel the pain! Whoa, man . . . sure hope it's feeling better each day that passes.

Oh, a beauty! That's what Uncle Rick said. I think so too. (the car, of course, not M's arm)

How does the race work? A downhill track?

We're looking forward to seeing your folks here tomorrow for their birthdays weekend!

The car does look very cool. That's a neat experience for both M and R. When and where is this Pinewood Derby? Does this car have a motor or how does it go?

M's arm looks like it's healing up nicely.Looks like eschar in that one picture. Glad it's healing so well.
