HAPPY KWANZAA…OR BOXING DAY!!!!! Take your pick. Welcome Gabbers and others to my NASCAR Updates & Other Fast Stuff. Just looked at my date book and saw that Kwanzaa started Saturday and that Canada’s Boxing Day was also Saturday. What a busy season this time of year is.
Hope all Gabbers and others had the best day ever on Christmas. I woke up early and headed up to my sons house in the fog. Scary stuff because it was so thick but I stopped at a Sheetz for free coffee and a snack. Took my time getting there and then it was watch the grandkids open presents. Everything went well till unwrapping was over. Then the 2 year old wanted to lay claim to everything. My daughter in laws father and I escaped to the kitchen for fresh ground and brewed coffee. We figured let the parents sort it out. We stepped outside in the 70 degree foggy weather and enjoyed our fresh brew.
Later on in the afternoon we traveled to my parents. The fog never left. It was foggy when I left there at 9pm. WITHOUT LEFT OVERS!!!! Oh yeah, I won that battle. Had 1 plate of food and 3 small cookies. I will not be losing my battle to keep off the weight I lost. It’s a pretty cool thing to be able to see your feet once again without having to lean way over. Doin’ my best celebratory Snoopy dance.
When I went Christmas shopping I got a Beatles calender for me. Have yet to turn on Spotify or Pandora to see if The Beatles are on there. If they had their own Sirius channel I’d vote to listen to that at work but I’m sure that some how it’d get yanked. Not pop enough. And who’s Paul McCartney? My kingdom for a decent non pop or top 10 radio station. PLEASE.
A fire took out the home of these 2 families just before Christmas. The Harvicks decided to take them shopping through their foundation. So it was off to Ollies Bargain Outlet they went. Each kid got 4 minutes to push a cart through the store and get what they could. Delana took one of the girls through a head of time to plan their attack. After the kids went through the Harvick’s decided the moms should have a turn as well.
Ollies sponsors Kevin Harvick but has become a member of his foundation too.
Yes Harvey, this is The Danica dressed as a unicorn. Found this on Twitter. I guess besides yoga she pretends to be a unicorn? I would rate this right up there with that pink bunny outfit Ralphy wears in A Christmas Story. You’ll shoot your eye out kid.
Danica’s boyfriend Ricky Stenhouse won a USAC Midget race last Saturday night in DuQuoin, Ill. Top prize? $3000. Hey, a wins a win.
Just not a whole lot going on in NASCAR to talk about. Now that the holidays are over and I don’t have mandatories, I can now plan some more interesting reading till the Daytona 500 rolls around on February 21st.
So in the mean time, have a good one. The Redskins are playoff bound. And that’s even with that whatever you call that kneel tap the ground with the ball look confused holy crap I screwed up play. More football to come folks.
And I’m outta here…=^!^=
