Daytona 500 Poodle

When I woke up this morning, the temperature was around 20 degrees. I looked at this picture of my dog PooPa, and thought of next weekend. That’s when my son Jim – a lawyer in Chicago – and I will jump on a plane and fly to Orlando.

Each year we go down to the Daytona 500 and we’re really looking forward to it this year. They’ve changed the rules so that I think we’ll see a more exciting race.

Jim’s happy because his favorite driver, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. (#88) has secured the # 2 spot at the front of the field. My favorite driver, Jeff Gordon (24) has to qualify in the shorter races on Thursday.
If you happen to tune in to the race on Sunday, Jim and I, along with my sister Margaret, will be sitting in the top row in turn 1.
May the best driver - Jeff Gordon in my case : )) – win!

My grandson is also a big Jeff Gordon fan. He'll be cheering for Jeff.
