Knott's Bound

It sucks! It turns out the hard drive on my lap top called it quits. So, again it seats on the top of a table waiting for the IT guy to see if he can bring it back to life. If I know this guy a little bit, then I know that my computer is far away from being in the top of his priorities. So... who know when I'll have a working computer again.

There is a good chance that all my files are once again gone. But as I said the last time, they are only files and one thing I found out about computers is that they keep getting file after file so that problem will be solved just as soon as I have a computer again.

In the meantime I hug mi chica's desk top computer at home. She kept asking me, "when is your computer going to be ready?" Oops! I think she now knows it won't be any time soon.

Only because I can't afford a new one.

In other news, a lot of us family members will be going to Knott's Berry Farm in April. This is a trip we really love and have done many times before. The whole thing revolves around my Mustang. As many of you already know I am a Mustang enthusiast. Here in Phoenix I am a member of the Copperstate Mustang Club and every year many of the members make the trip to Buena Park California for the weekend for the annual Fabulous Fords Forever car show in Knott's Berry Farm.

We normally take off from Phoenix on Friday afternoon and get to West Covina later that night. Then on Saturday we all go to Knott's and spend the day there. There are many Disneyland addicts in my family but for me Knott's is better for the value. As mi chica and I have grown older, we are no longer the daredevils we once were and just enjoy going there to see the sights and ride some of the lame rides with our grand kids.

I have more fun seeing them discover new things than doing the rides. The last time we went three years ago most of them were too little to have fun, but this year my two older grand kids are 8 and 7 years old, and Diego is about to turn six. These three should really enjoy it. Ducky is only five but I have a feeling he will love it too. The other three are still too young and will bug all day I'm sure, but we'll try to keep them entertained by pushing them all over the park in their strollers.

How funny, because the first time Diego went to Knott's he was only two weeks old. He's been there at least two more times since but I can guarantee you that he'll think this time is his first.

I just got confirmation and my car will be in the show on Sunday. So, while the girls take the day to go out and get pedicures, manicures, and what not us guys will head down to Knott's Berry Farm again and enjoy the show. This show usually attracts about 2000 cars with 60% of them being Mustangs. It sells out every year so I wasn't sure if my late application would still be accepted. I know now I have a spot. This year they will be highlighting the Fox Body Mustangs as it is their 30th Anniversary. I have a 93 which is the last year model for the Mustang Fox Body.

So far there are about 25 of us going, most of us from Phoenix but my niece Crystal and my niece Becca and her boyfriend Danny will join us too. They are locals from L.A. I am really looking forward to this trip. First because my kids and all my grand kinds will be going, and second because even with these hard times we will be able to go out together as a big family without breaking the piggy bank.

Fox Body Mustangs, celebrating their 30th Anniversary.

Diego knows he's been there before... but I think Alayna will be excited thinking it's her first time there!
