    To quote Churchill - "There is nothing wrong with change, if it is in the right direction."

    After spending 5+ years in the retail trenches for my company, receiving numerous accolades (Manager Of The Year, etc.), reinventing my leadership style, and re-evaluating my career path, I have been promoted to our corporate headquarters in Brentwood, TN.

    I wanted to take moment to thank the members of the Texas region for their hospitality during my stay here, with specific mention of the following-

    Tillman- Thank you for allowing a stranger to sit in your car at the 2006 Italian Carfest, and allowing the same stranger to give his wife a ride around the block in it while at one of Nicola's F1 watching parties.

    Don & Carolyn- Thank you for the hospitality you extended Nancy, Emily, Aidyn, and myself over the past couple of years. The parties at your home for the races were always a high point to the F1 season. The hair-clip exchange at the USGP speaks volumes of your character.

    Will & Farmer Dave- Thanks for the automotive conversations, the new car show trips, and for you Dave, "Boomer Sooner"

    Nicola & Giorgio, David K., and Jano- Thank you as well for the entertaining conversations, and inviting us into your home for the watching parties.

    I have thoroughly enjoyed the events over the past 5 years, and those who I have met that I did not mention here as well. My wife and daughters will miss the people and events that this area has introduced us to, and will miss the gatherings in the future. Luckily Rob's playground has no borders, and I hope to slip into the Tennessee area forum and find the same camaraderie exhibited by those from Texas. I drive out Sunday, family will follow in June. Hey.. did you know Road Atlanta is only a 4 hour drive from Nashville? http://www.roadatlanta.com/event_detail.lasso?-Token.eventfile=ev_ferrari.lasso&-Token.id=33

    Thanks for making this Okie feel welcome, and we'll see you down the road..

    Todd, Nancy, Emily and Aidyn Milliken

    Todd & Family,

    Hopefully it's not goodbye but rather, see you again down the road! F1 get togethers won't be the same without you.

    Congrats on the promotion and transfer... the The WS Pikeys were ready to take over your campsite anyway.

    Don't hesitate to let us know if you need anything during the transition.

    Dave

    Todd..
    You cracked me up at the Dallas Car show and your knowledge of F1 (and courage to wear a Mclaren shirt at the final watching party) will be missed.

    But you got to what what you got to do.

    Stop by to drive the Boxer before you go.

    Thanks everyone for the words.. David, between now and the final move in June, I will take you up on that offer.. Hopefully I will be in town on an F1 race weekend, and I can attend. This afternoon, I'm watching the replay with a group here in Brentwood (meetup.com) with Nancy on the cell phone watching at home.

    In the meantime, check out some of my photos from yesterday at Road Atlanta-
