Sometimes Things Get Spooky

 Taking a short rest from my list of chores today, I chose a jigsaw puzzle to do. As I cruised through the 500,000 or so pictures, I came across the one below. 

Nice yellow race car, 96 pieces, should be fairly simple. 

What I didn't notice was the sponsor on the car and the logo on the tail fin. 

While I was assembling the puzzle, two pieces had writing on them so I naturally put them together. 

The name that those two pieces made was very familiar to me. DA Lubricant.  

A company based in Indianapolis, Indiana. The name on the puzzle didn't even jog my brain. "Vintage Indy Roadster. 

So, what's so spooky, you ask? I worked for DA Lubricant for 10 years. I was their Distribution Center Manager for the location here in Sacramento. 

Suddenly, putting together probably puzzle 60 something, I stumble across a puzzle with a name that was a significant part of my life. 

Can we have a little spooky music please. Thank you.   

Anyway, that's it for today. 

Stay tuned.
