Today is "FEEDBACK FRIDAY", meaning I deal with emails that my assistant Stephanie and I receive from readers regarding our most recent blogs... Let's get right to your feedback... Yesterday's blog featuring my short essay titled "THE HOLIDAY SEASON HELPS US REFLECT ON AND APPRECIATE ALL OUR DRAG RACING FRIENDSHIPS" resulted in lots of emails. 'Fast Dart Darlene' (as she likes to call herself) from Mooresville, NC wrote, "I believe that most of the friends I now spend time with during the holidays come from relationships made through my drag racing hobby. There's a lot of good people in the sport who have become my closest and best friends."...  Wednesday's TALES OF THE PHANTOM RACER serial series resulted in lots of you writing in. Imogen from all the way in Edinburgh, UK said, "The angels singing combined with the Hemi engines cackling during Fred The Wrench's transformation was so dramatic. It was a fine Phantom Christmas tale for me."-- Once again Gary from Wellington, OH wrote in, "I thought the last episode was a little too sappy for my taste. I would have preferred more ghouls and scary stuff."... My blog encouraging all my racing readers to spend some time sharpening their reaction skills with a practice tree device over the winter off-season prompted emails from all over the map. Jerry from Kent, WA wrote, "Doc sounds like my wife, nagging me to use the practice tree she bought me last Christmas, so I can finally start winning some grocery money at the drag strip. LOL!" -- Matty from Freehold, NJ wrote "I try to spend at least fifteen minutes a day with my practice tree. Doc always gives the best advice for us racers."... My blog expressing concern for my friends in Southern California who are dealing with the dangerous wildfires got Harriet from Santa Barbara, CA  to write, "Doc is a blessing with her thoughts and prayers. She knows how to make me feel better."... Our so-called "SUNDAY FUNNIES THAT AREN'T NECESSARILY THAT FUNNY AT ALL" managed to get Catherine from Montgomery, TX in a bit of an angry frenzy, she typed, "The only thing Marvin deserves for Christmas is a bag of coal smashed over his head by all the women he cyber bullies!"... My blog paying respects to the recently departed Bob Glidden stirred up lots of emotionally charged responses from plenty of readers. Michael from Whiteland, IN said, "I grew up with Bob Glidden. Thanks for Doc's thoughtful tribute. I'll be a Ford blue oval guy just like Bob until the day I'm dead and buried too."... Thanks to all of you who wrote in with comments. Even though there's no way we have room to print all your emails, we want you to know that all your comments and suggestions are taken into consideration... Keep those emails comin' (by using the "Contact Us" link atop the page), whether you agree or disagree with mine, or any of our substitute guest bloggers' opinions, we're genuinely interested in your feedback... We just ask that you please keep your emails short and to the point, no rambling please, and please also include where you're from, we often find the location of where folks are writing us from to be sort of interesting. If you want to remain anonymous you can do that too (just write that you want to remain anonymous in the body of your email, and we won't disclose your identity in the event we choose to make a reference to your particular opinion)... Thanks...
