    7/05/81

    Marc wants to know why I don't go to boat races since 81í well my nickname Termite was given to me by my Pop Pop Harris while playing in his boat building shop due to the fact I picked up any and all lose wood to build stuff.
    I once drank some fiberglass hardener while with pop pop and had to have a tonsillectomy I have never seen an old man jump out of a boat on a trailer so fast itís a miracle he didnít have a heart attack running from the shop to the house 100 yards away with a screaming 4 year old in his arms

    Well my Uncle Ray bought one of the last boats Pop pop built from a family friend and named it Termite after me.

    Well when I got my drivers license I started hanging out at Uncle Rayís house sometimes and going to some of the races well on July 5th 1981 the day after his 38th birthday he was in a race and Termiteís gas tank came loose and the engine died, the guy behind him didnít see him and ran up the back of the Termite and killed Uncle Ray and knocked his ride along mechanic into Barnegat Bay.

    So that is why I donít go to boat races.

    Sorry if I bummed anyone out
