I have never watched it, but you enjoy it!

I will be watching some racing this weekend. I use to attend the February Daytona 500 and the July Pepsi race in Daytona every year. Then they got a little bit greedy-crazy and the cost of a ticket is just plain dumb... so I've been watching it on TV for the past 8-10 years.

Thanks for reminding me, I almost forgot... it's tonight!

Have a lovely day! Big hugs from steamy south jawjah! xoxo

Enjoy the race honey. Sounds like a nice relaxing way to spend the long weekend. Good for the both of you.

We were looking at Mohos yesterday and went into one that was to die for. We thought of you immediately. It was beautiful. I could just move right on in. Well almost.

Have a terrific day honey. Big hug and lots of love to you both. Happy Independence Day. :)

It is definitely one of the greatest races of all. I saw the prologue in London back in 2007
