Horsepower: His And Hers

Last week was a busy one for Motor Man and me.

We left early Tuesday morning for our trip to the Performance Racing Industry show in Indianapolis. Along the way, we stopped at a friend and engine customer’s place in Ohio. Motor Man needed to deliver some engine parts to him and pick up some from him.

Oh, and they have horses.

Meet Story:

And this is Arrow.

And sweet little Indy.

I had lots of fun with Indy; loved those little horse kisses.

And she liked nuzzling my hair.

All too soon we had to leave. After all, we WERE heading to Indy for a racing show.

But, wait!  The night we arrived in Indy, we took a carriage ride. Our horse’s name was Rumor.

Yes, a real man rides in a Cinderella carriage if that’s the one his wife chooses.

It’s a big joke among Motor Man and his friends that I have my horsepower, and he has his.

We spent much of Thursday and Friday at the racing industry show, where we met a few racers. On the left is our good friend, Larry (aka Spiderman. He holds the world record for the fastest time/speed on a top fuel motorcycle).  Between him and my Motor Man is Angie Smith, who also races motorcycles.

I met Clay Millican, an NHRA champion. It’s fun to meet someone whose name you hear on tv quite often.

On Friday evening, we were treated to the play, A Christmas Carol, by our friends (who have the horses mentioned above). We had a great time, but sadly, we didn’t think about having a picture taken of the four of us.

Saturday, we made the 12-hour trip home. Our kitties were glad to see us, and we were happy to be back at home.

Keeping up with his and hers horsepower can sometimes be a bit tiring.
