The Dice from the Toybox

THE SCENE: Chilly and Breezy.  39 or so degrees.  Weirdly enough, there’s a news crew parked in the lot with their headlights on, and every fifteen or twenty minutes, they jump out and do a live bit for the morning news, then sit in their cars again.  Unfortunately for us, I was thinking we should be rolling a big…

THE SCENE: The Weatherman threatened lightning, but he was just guessing, and he was wrong.  Temps were nice.  Breeze was good after we warmed up.

THE SCENE: Oh, could one ask for a finer morning at Shelby Farms? 40-odd degrees, sunny, and fine. F3 WELCOME & DISCLAIMER I was as welcoming as I’m capable of (sort of, in other words), and I disclaimed folks in an off-handed and jaded way, which was wrong of me, ’cause we had an FNG. WARM-O-RAMA: 20 SSH, 10…
