Title: Another commitment
Post by: Desmond on July 12, 2004, 05:01:52 PM
I missed the start of yesterday's Tropicana 400 because of another family commitment.  This time it was the celebration of the engagement of my brother Tommy to Lisa Colon.

Tommy received a couple of gifts, but it was mostly a social occasion with a buffet lunch thrown in.

He is seven years younger than me, but he is the first of the children from our parents to get married. Dad told me that he is excited about giving away one of his children in marriage.

The wedding is scheduled for the summer of next year.

Tommy works at the U.S.-Mexico border as part of the Department of Homeland Security.  Lisa is still going to college, I think.

Be sure to catch the replay on Wed or Thurs whenever it is.

Glad you had a good time.  And congrats to your brother.

Ron,

I did catch the second half of the race.  In fact, the first thing I saw was the controversial accident with Stewart and Kahne.

Also, is "ronbarnes77," your current screen name, the same person as "ronbarnes777"?  Why did you change it?
