A surprise package

A few months ago, when the NASCAR guys were in Las Vegas, a coworker of LZ’s sent her husband and daughter off for the weekend. Yay for NASCAR road trips with dad!

Kyle Busch was signing autographs, so they snapped a photo for me. See…

Wednesday evening, I come home from work, and a package sat on my doorstep. I knew it was coming, but I didn’t know what was inside. I grabbed a pair of scissors from the kitchen and worked my way through the tape shut box. See the hat he’s signing in the picture up there? Guess what was inside the box?

As soon as I opened it, my legs almost gave out as I tried so hard to not drop it. Tears rolled down my face as I thought I can’t let this hat, signed by one of the greatest drivers on the track today, fall to the ground. No way.  I have big plans for this hat, and they don’t involve being on the ground. I have a glass cabinet in storage that typically houses all my NASCAR memorabilia. This hat will eventually be put in there. Until then, I’ll be sportin’ it with my KB jacket!

Thank you D&J. You truly are as fabulous as LZ always says! This hat is now in good hands.


  1. That doesnt look like Jeff Gordons Signature. Oh thats right you didnt say THE greatest driver. My bad.
