The Great American Race has been postponed due to weather. Torrential downpours. Crap.
I was looking forward to the race today. I had everything all planned out. Had my Sunday to-d0 list all written out (yes, I have different to-do lists for each day of the week) and afterward, I was going to settle in on the couch with my Kyle Busch hat and cup and hoodie for a few hours of beatin’ and bangin’ three wide, four wide, a lot of someone’s in the wall racin’…
Never fear though, the race is tomorrow at noon. I’ll need to make sure my Monday to-do list is complete by then…
Now well, with the Sunday to-do list nearly finished, I can sit and read. It’s not like I don’t have a lot of that to do. And I’ve just done some baking (brownie whoppie pies) and have a nice bottle of Trader Joe’s Moscato wine chilling in the fridge… On the Kindle, I have a book titled Duck by Kim Dare. So far, I’m enthralled and I’m only in the first couple of pages. On the Nook, I have a book by T. A. Chase titled Duncan’s World.
The race will be fun to watch. It will be crazy to watch. And, I’m one of the very few women who could care less about there being a woman named Danica in the starting line-up.
I myself have never been to the Daytona 500. I’ve been to other races in Daytona, but never that one. The sheer size of the Daytona International Speedway is amazing and impressive. It’s awe inspiring. The roar, the energy, the way the stands shake as the cars thunder past. The site of where so many victories and some devastating tragedies have taken place, take your breath away.
I can’t wait to go to the 500 one day, to take my son… I have a feeling once won’t ever be enough.
So, about that wine I mentioned… Yeah, I’m gonna go have a glass and gear up for tomorrow.
Have a good night, y’all!
Was at the 500 but came home due to the rain. Since it’s supposed to rain more tomorrow than it did today, we may not go back. Debating it at the moment.
You really need to go to the 500 at least once. It’s such fun and such a crowd.
