SPYKE

Whoa, Nellie! If you missed it, you missed a whole lot of beautiful steel horses in one place. If you were there, you know that no words can totally convey what went down the stretch. I’m squawking about the Great American Motofest that ran at the Boss Hogg ranch.

Mike, Cherry, and I were so busy treating the fans to one hell of a mechanical equestrian event that we totally lost track of time. Before we knew it, most of our friends were beating the dusty trail home in front of the inevitable rain that was en route. All-day long at the ranch, Mother Nature was leading the pack with no precipitation in sight. There was a decent gallop from cloud cover and a fairly nice breeze blowing up from behind.

HONORING THEIR COURAGE AND SACRIFICE, HAPPY FATHER'S DAY

My Uncle *Gee' was my dad's father figure in his life for many years because his father worked many hours. He came from Italy and worked with marble but than later became ill and couldn't do much with my dad. That's when Uncle 'Gee' stepped in and helped my dad in life as a father figure. So in this month of June. as a special Father's Day tribute, we would like to honor my Uncle "Gee' Fidel Galletti who was a real WWII war hero pilot who flew B-17s. Most of all, he was my dad's hero This story is courtesy of The 390th Memorial Museum and my cousin. Marie Gallletti, Mitchell.
