June 26, 2016—-Loveland, Colorado
Today was much like most of the rest lately…warm, a little bit of wind, but no rain this time.
We didn’t go anywhere today. I had one of my down days, so I took several naps.
We also watched the NASCAR race from Sonoma. It is our favorite track. It is a road course, and can be very interesting. Several years ago, we went to the track for five days. It wasn’t the best camping conditions…we were parked in a mowed off cornfield. But we had a great time just being there. On Sunday, when the race was being run, we watched from the motorhome. It was a good place to see all of the action. Plus it saved us $90 a person in tickets.
We had special passes to the Hendrick Motor Sports tent. We had lunch there and a short presentation by the drivers. When Jeff Gordon was talking, he saw his grandma in the audience, so they brought her to the stage. Being a grandmother, that was extra special to me.
Natalia got restless so I took her outside the tent. Someone from another team gave her a fanny pack and several other promotional items. I can’t remember the driver being promoted, but that day it certainly paid off to be a cute little seven year old.
Bill pulled weeds in Michelle’s flower garden. It looks so good. I think he plans to outline the area with brick. He just keeps busy all the time. I may have to start calling him Farmer Bill.
