10 Years Ago – December 2004

For such a cold night, there sure were a lot of people who came to the Sno-Cap.

I know it was not the thoughts of a top down Light Tour that brought everyone out, because only two cars had their roofs folded when we did get underway.

It might have been those fabulous root beer floats or long dogs served at the drive in, because more than a few people noshed even though a food-centered party was only an hour or so away.

But It was probably more that the Millers lived way out in the wilds of Edgefield county and no one wanted to take a chance on getting lost trying to get to the party. Even Brian & Donna who had pre-run the tour and party house locating the night before, were not too confident they would find their way correctly on the first attempt.

Soon, the Bogarduses, in their dark red sleigh were off leading eight tiny Miatas on their appointed rounds in search of gaily decorated homes. One place from the night before was dark, but to balance it out one place on the route was unexpectedly ablaze in holiday lights. One place was conveniently located on a cul-de-sac so it could be enjoyed both coming and going.

Brian found the Woodspring Court first attempt and the Miller’s driveway was easy to find too. It was flanked by two half scale Miata shaped Christmas decorations. John Nicholls, inspired by last year’s lit up POS and the displays at the Augusta Golf & Gardens, was a busy elf in his workshop this year crafting these special beauties. The lights that represented the wheels and bottom of the cars were chasing lights giving off just the right amount of zoom-zoom.

The Millers were gracious hosts and had a really nice house for entertaining. In their cathedral ceiling living room stood a tree that rivaled the one in Rockefeller Center, it must have been 150’ tall, perfect for placing the numerous gifts under. The variety of different food stuffs was as big as the tree too. I think I got full before trying every one, and that is no small feat.

Nailed It

Hammering around the track, every corner is popping up. Only one way to keep that curbing down. NAIL THAT …!!!
