By guest columnist Joel David Thorne.
Here we are....another May. Another Indy 500. Another Fast Friday, annnnnnndddd "It's a NEW TRACK Record" for pole position.  Another rain delay, and another Carb Day.
 
But, it isn't just "another" day at the track. It's not just "another" day at IMS, or anywhere.  We have been slammed directly in our collective foreheads for the past two years that none of us saw coming.

God willing, I will attend my 50th Indianapolis 500 on May 29th. Fifty. Wow, I mean, holy sh!t!
 
I can’t help but to reflect on all those years. I could recount the racing history, but that gets done elsewhere. I think I would be of better service to others if I reminisce about life in Indianapolis during the Mays of my childhood.

I know, this has nothing to do with motorsport. It's still a great history about Christmas, which my family and I cherish. Click the attachment.
