News from the country:
e:mailed MTM Newsletter. Looks like this should save MTM 32 cents. I'm
very disappointed about losing the West MI GP. Had a lot of fun there the
past two years. I'm up in bfe (Alpena). Nice up here. Rose and I bought a
place on Lake Huron - pretty cool. They say this is God's country.
Obviously, God is not a city boy. There are two tracks within an hour and
a half drive, both 1/4 mile ovals (dirt, I think) in Onaway (which way?)
farther north and Whittemore (farther south). We'll probably check them
out, chew tobacco and hoot and holler some Saturday night this summer.
Look forward to seeing y'all (oops) in Detroit.

space since all the Lotus parts should be back into the car by then. I'm
conveniently located 3 blocks from US-23 and Washtenaw Rd in Ann Arbor,
and there is plenty of street parking on my residential (25 MPH) street. I
also have a 1/32nd scale slot car track sitting on the pool table in the
basement for racing entertainment.
