Thank you all for the well wishes. That is most appreciated.
Chris, we will have a word later, about you blowing my cover.
In the meantime, my mother, who is visiting this week for the Thanksgiving holiday, insisted that I set up some Ninco track so that she could try out a couple of cars. Here she is qualifying the Nonno Slot Ferrari. This is the first time she piloted a slot car. At 86, one is never too old.
Mom had a blast, even if the camera man (that would be me) didn't realize that the picture would not self adjust when the camera was turned from horizontal to vertical. Unfortunately, there is no video of her launching the Scalextric Lotus 49 across the room, which is a pity as my mom got a real kick out of that. I suppose that tomorrow I might even let her try out a few of the scratch built cars. Well, maybe not.
