I learned that monster trucks are just as great in person as I always thought they would be. I was always fascinated with the commercials for monster truck shows. So much so, that in my spare time at college, I made one. (Sorry, this one is audio only*.)
My asbestos friend invited my son and I along for a girl’s night out to Monster Jam at the Huntington Center in Toledo, Ohio. My son was a little scared at first. But I had him equipped with proper hearing protection and he really got into it when the trucks did their freestyle at the end of the night.
Grave Digger (the only truck that was there that I had heard of) flipped over–twice! That was awesome! We got all the drivers’ autographs afterward.
I was sad that the Monster Mutt and the Scooby-Doo trucks were not there. But I would definitely go again sometime.
On to a new subject…
Kids, when you get a new computer ALWAYS make recovery disks right away, and store in a safe, logical location.
Also, regularly back up things you care about. Delete the things on your computer that you do not care enough to back up. I had to have my hard drive in my laptop replaced this week, but I am VERY glad to have it back. (FYI–I did both of those satisfactorily enough that I was not devastated by the loss.)
