It is a BIG day in Salisbury NC.There will be gun shooting, shine drinking and he might even give himself a new #3 haircut. Then tonight Tracy will take him to that fancy restaurant with all the rockin chairs out front. He gets the local favorite "Salisbury Steak". Have a great one from OPM.

Happy Birthday Bob!

On a side note - everyone make sure to change their cell phone numbers because apparently Bob got a new phone for his birthday and now knows how to text message. I got a text at 7:30 this morning that spoke something of moonshine, shooting, and coon dogs.

Everybody raise your glass for a birthday cheer:
May all your valve cuts be crisp (like the cold air on a hunting morning). May all your heads flow freely (like the 'shine from your jelly jar). May your great success and contributions to Spec Miata continue for many, many years.

Happy birthday, Bobby T. Now go shoot somethin'!

Wow! No wonder he builds such fast motors. Anyone who has had to grow up with combined Birthday and Christmas gifts for 29 years has to be a little bitter.

Lucky for me though. Thanks Bob for the power and the support with my racing. I hope your day is the best ever.

Happy Birthday, [rockband] [rockband] [rockband]

I just thought I would let everyone know that Bob got a shiny new Blackberry Tour for his birthday and he has just learned what a text message is. Yes the world headquarters has a new communication link. He can even type one back to ya! This is a huge step for Bob and I hope everyone that has his number floods him with text messages. Send him a Happy Birthday

Tracy will now have to text for both Tom and Bob? Texting for Tom is bad enough!
