Church called, Apparently I pissed off the old people.

So the Neighborhood I go to Church in just recently joined Metro Nashville. In other words no more local police department (Barney fife), so the neighborhood watch is totally a big thing right now. Well I left Church tonight and kicked it for the small strip to the stop sign (45mph max) Anyway a few miles down the road I'm getting a phone call from one of my Pastors telling me someone just called the Church completely irate that a loud silver mercedes was flying through their neighborhood. They even threatened to call the police.

I told the pastor that maybe I need to do it more often and we might get more people in Church.

I'm also thinking about getting a few wooden stakes and some poster board for a special sign for this Sunday. "Rev your engine if you love Jesus"

You should join our church... The Z4 in the foreground is the Congregational Vice Pres, the SLK belongs to my wife - director of family ministry, the first Harley is the Pastor's, in the background is a red Nissan Z that belongs to the President. Oh, the Pastors daughter rode on the back of his Harley while her fianc (my son) drove the Z4 and they both teach at church / school. It was actually a church event, long way to lunch.... a tool to bring people in .

Oh, we piss of the "old" people all the time !!
