I hope today finds you all happy and healthy.
I know it's soon after the last, but today is another off topic day.
About 5 years ago, I, Lisa A Kelley, who spent most of my life sticking my nose up to it, became a NASCAR fan.
When you live in Dover, Delaware and the small towns surrounding, the words "the races are in town this weekend" can fill you with dread. As a local living close to Dover Downs aka . . .
. . . getting around town on race weekend can be a nightmare for locals. There are literally areas of town we avoid. The traffic is just too crazy.
What? Oh yeah . . . I digress.
I now love NASCAR and never miss a race on TV.
As great luck will have it, my sister Darlene won two tickets for today's big race! I'll be dropping her and my sister Tammie off at Miles the Monster.
If you want an idea how big Miles is, those are the bleachers behind him. Miles stands 46 feet tall!
If I love the races so much, why am I not going?
A couple of reasons that I won't bore you with. But I'm okay with it. And, I'm excited for Tammie. She loves NASCAR. She's the one who got me into it. Darlene entered to win the tickets for Tam to have the chance to go. And Darlene, well she won't admit it, but she likes it too.
After I drop my sisters off, I will be coming home, putting on my comfy clothes, and watching the races from my happy place.
If I'm completely honest about it, at some point, it may look more like . . .
So, does anyone else watch NASCAR?
Do you watch any sports at all? I like football too, but only when the Pittsburg Steelers are playing. However, I'm not allowed to watch when they play because I'm a jinx to them and . . . that's an off topic for another post.
While watching the races, I'm going to be studying up on glass patterns and kitchen glassware from the depression era - 1960s. A new love of mine.
Then it's off to pickup the weary races goers and hear all the details of their experience.
How are you spending your Sunday?
I want to hear all about it!
