Can't Go to the Party this Year!

Well, it's here. I'm not able to go. I'm sad.

Bristol, that's what.

Yep -- twice each year, the small town of Bristol TN/VA, and its surrounding towns. . . Johnson City, Kingsport, Jonesborough, Elizabethton, and even Erwin. . . are inundated with race fans from all over the country. They gather to "Thunder Valley" for the most exciting half-mile NASCAR racing event.

Last year, in August, we were there. Granted, we worked a concession booth for DSAG. (Wearing ourselves out in the process) But, we were there. We had tickets for the (then named) Busch series race on Friday night.

This year, however, being a 3-race package, and being the start of many families' Spring Break, and for me -- Palm Sunday weekend -- we chose not to work a concession booth this year.

So, I'm sad. It's starting to get revved up over in Bristol. The fans are starting to get excited. Practice sessions will begin today, as well as qualifying for the truck race, the Nationwide race, and the Sprint Cup race.

. . . and I'm not there. Sigh.

Did you catch that? I said "revved up" two paragraphs ago.....?

Oh my! Revved Up Huh!!? You are way too funny! Sorry you won't make it this year. I go to the drag strip (may even be behind the wheel this year). But have not been to a Nascar event. Love dirt track and drag racing though!

But you can still be there "in spirit"

Big hugs... Maybe next time.

Thanks for the prayers!

I am with you sister!! Today our year long wait is over....the worldwide F1 Grand Prix is at our city. We love to go...organise for days off work. But alas with sizzling temperatures of over 100 and scorching northerly winds (and a price tag of over A$100 to enter) we find ourselves at home watching it all on TV.
