Yes, I haven’t been blogging recently. That’s because I took a little, Indianapolis 500-oriented time off. I’ve got a lot to catch up on, so look for a busy week here at Your Kid’s Not Going Pro. Thanks for hanging in!

(If you don’t know, that car in the pic is the Marmon Wasp, driven by Ray Harroun to win the first Indy 500 in 1911. You probably don’t know that if you didn’t grow up hearing longtime Indy 500 track announcer Tom Carnegie intone about “the first Indy 500, won by Rayyyy Harroooooun DRIVE-ing the Marrrmon Wasp.”
