“Today is a most unusual day, because we have never lived it before; we will never live it again; it is the only day we have.
Today can be a healthy unusual day for you -- and for others -- if you take time to give someone a smile . . . to express a word of kindness . . . to lend a helping hand to someone in need . . . to write a note of gratitude . . . to give a word of encouragement to someone who is temporarily overcome with problems . . . to share a portion of your material possessions with others.”
“John said that when we played a funeral in Marion it was the most unusual job we've had. The woman who passed away was a big fan of big band music, and her husband had us play some of her favorites in the church during the funeral. It was well-received and added a lighter touch to an otherwise very sad day for the family.”
“It's a big job, but it's a big job when we get there, too. Once the truck arrives in Peoria [Ariz., three days later], we've got to unload and get everything set up. That's the real job. Once those guys are out there on the field and playing, we'll know the season's ready to go.”
“[MIKE'S RICHMOND REMARKS:] My Tundra was just awesome, ... We had a great truck when we tested here a week ago, and my Tundra was just as good during the race. I could go anywhere I wanted on the track, without any problems. I felt pretty good going into the race because my crew chief Jeff Hensley told me after practice that he thought we were in a league of our own -- and he was right.”
