Glenn, a Prospective Division Manager with AXA Insurance Co., visited with Barbara and I over the past week. Glenn had a conference in New Orleans and he turned it into a mini-vacation by spending 5 days with his father (Me)!
While he was here, he enjoyed “Knuckle Sucking Good” Fried Chicken from Delpits and great Bar-B-Que from Deep South BBQ (two visits each). We also visited a few other good seafood places, including Tony’s and Drusilla Seafood. We took a tour around Southern and LSU’s campus’ and many other places in Baton Rouge and the West Side. We attended Shiloh M. B. C. on Sunday and watched a lot of football. Glenn is a die-hard Oakland Raiders fan (one of those crazy ones that you see on TV!
On Friday, Sept. 25th, Glenn talked me into running my car at State Capitol Raceway. We did not have the hood yet, but I had my K&N Air Filter that allowed us to run. Outlaw met us at the track and after our warm-ups, and watching a lot of other cars go down the track without a problem, we took a shot. We ran a 8.960 @ 148 MPH! We were very, very happy. After a cool-down, we came back with a 8.942 @ 148 MPH. In eliminations, we ran a 5.63 on a 5.65 dial-in and broke out for a loss. It was a very good night. Temps. were around 84 degrees all night and Humidity was high, up around 69% when we made our last run. Glenn enjoyed his visit to the track, and we enjoyed his visit.
