Today was very warm - plus 11 at one point. Rick and I drove up to Eganville and on the way back we noticed that the snowmobile trails were nothing but grass and mud - some of the fields were just acres of water! amazing for mid February
I've really noticed, too, that warmer the weather, the busier Rick and I get! So, we've been quite active this past week.
Well, it was Speedweeks in Daytona this week! I've watched as much as I've been able to (hard to fit it in sometimes) Now, I don't mean to offend and Dale Earnhardt Sr. fans, but as it is the 10th anniversary of Dale Sr.'s crash in Daytona, the media is totally freaking MILKING it! Honestly, I'm starting to turn the sound down.
I was watching an interview with Jeff Gordon this afternoon and in the middle of Jeff, Ricky Craven and Rusty Wallace yakking it up about racing against each other back in the day, the reporter totally interupts them with her - "Jeff, how big an influence was Dale on your career?" ENOUGH ALREADY!!!!! PLEASE STOP!! They weren't even talking about him, you silly twit! It was like some alarm went off in her bubble head saying "we haven't mentioned Dale Sr. for 10 minutes - must talk about Dale Earnhardt....." jeez
Tonite, we caught the truck race - good race - Michael Waltrip won (btw, d'ya think it was a conincidence that Michael's book about racing with Dale Sr., hit the bookstores this week????) anyway, the first freaking thing out of the interviewers mouth when Michael climbed out of his truck was referencing Dale's crash 10 years ago (to the day - could it be more dramatic????) and how this win meant more to Michael because it came 10 years (to the day).....
And much to his credit, the only one not milking the story is Dale Earnhardt Jr. I think he's saying "enough already" too!
Anyway, glad to have racing back, I'll just watch it this weekend with the sound turned down.
We're off to Bill and Andrea's for the Daytona 500 on Sunday. Can't wait!!!! (hopefully, they'll want to watch with the sound down too - hahahaha)
Today's pictures deer, Buddy in a tree and a woodpecker at the suet ball.
Monday is a full day for us with some showings and a home inspection in the afternoon. Nice to be busy!
