What he does with his Dad in his spare time...Yep Brett drives, His dad is the "crew chief" and I just stay at home and pray that they both come home safe! 4 generations of drag's definitely in their blood.

2007 brett

Today went like this:

Me: Brett, what would you like for your birthday?

Brett: I don't want to go in for work today.

(He works for his dad & I during the summer breaks)

Me: Okay, you can stay home if it's okay with Dad.

It was, so he played World of Warcraft ALL day long...


Me: Well, what else would you like?

Brett: Mom, could you please cook me some tasso, pork meat, rice & gravy and black eye peas & cheesecake for dessert?

Me: Sure thing.


Me: But Brett, don't you want SOMETHING for your birthday?

Brett: Nothing really Mom, I have everything I want.
