9 My Christmas Cards, and watching everybody laugh when they got them!
8 Helping the CAMS Victorian State Council to get change in Australian club motor sport.
7 Talking my way into the shops of Luczo Dragon/Dreyer and Reinbold.
6 Seeing a racing car turn a corner 350kph for the first time.
5 In the water on a West Coast beach with Holly.
4 Chatting to Ashley Judd in a burger joint in Milwaukee.
3 Hanging with Curt Cavin. Whether it was talking on the radio, or talking over a burger.
2 Watching Holly’s face as she got her 21st birthday present
1 Hearing 320,000 people sing “Back home again in Indiana” in person.
Apologies to Accidentally blowing off Lauren Bohlander, Seeing the Shaq in person, meeting Donald Davidson, fun with the J-Train, and buying myself a new computer for the first time in 14 years.
To my wonderful friends, from Western Australia to West Des Monies: Happy, prosperous and safe new year everybody.
