Actually, this is the THIRD time this particular race event has been rained out. I mentioned it several weeks ago, 'The Hooker Hood Classic" which is in memory of Hooker Hood who raced at the track for years. It is rescheduled for next Saturday night. Hopefully, it will not get rained out again. <BR> <BR> More vehicle 'woes a...

It started to rain earlier, but it didn't last very long. There is a 70% chance of rain for tomorrow. That will probably rain out the races for Saturday IF it actually happens. I will have to wait and see. I have a ton of things to keep me busy if the races are canceled, so I won't be bored. Actually, I am never bored because I ALWAYS have a gazillion things that need to be done around the house. I just don't wa... Thu, 17 Jul 2014 23:47:25 EST July 16, 2014 (Wednesday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5740478 Thank you all for you comments. I got the truck back today, and it did not cost an 'arm AND a leg,' just an 'arm OR a leg,' but not BOTH. <em>334</em> <BR> <BR> Other than that, today was an uneventful day other than dealing with all of the normal events that I deal with every day. <BR> <BR> Tomorrow is Thursday, my favorite day, and fortunately, it is not filled to the rim with miscellaneous running around and things that I have let pile up on me. Of course it is still a full day,... Thu, 17 Jul 2014 02:38:32 EST July 15, 2014 (Tuesday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5739558 I took my truck to the shop today for them to fix whatever it takes to stop it from leaking oil. Long story short...They are keeping it overnight. Fortunately, my sister, Kay, has an old Saturn that I borrowed because I have work tonight and tomorrow. <BR> <BR> Oh, I am 'ON' to this business which is a national chain. But what do ya do, other than use another company. Well, this place is positioned right next door to the gym where I work on Tues and Thurs mornings, so I can leave it th... Tue, 15 Jul 2014 19:07:09 EST July 14, 2014 (Sunday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5738136 Last night was a LOOOOOONG night. It was a BIG race, so there were a LOT of people there, and I was busy, busy, busy. That's OK though because during the times when I am NOT so busy, since I can't see anything from my location, it can get boring. <BR> <BR> It was very HOT there, too. I did have a fan in there with me, so it wasn't so bad, but it was really hot on the spectators and drivers. They love it though, so I don't guess the heat bothers them too much. They keep coming back for m...

Since this is a BIG race, I need to be there early, so I am just stopping by to say "HI" and "HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!" <BR> <BR> HUGS <BR> Pam Sat, 12 Jul 2014 12:06:10 EST July 9, 2014 (Wednesday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5735758 Nothing much going on around here. It did not rain today, but it stormed last night. A lot of people were without power, but fortunately, I was NOT one of them (this time). <BR> <BR> The Elvis impersonator will be returning for a show on Saturday night. This time, in addition to Elvis, he will do Johnny Cash, and Roy Orbison. Shelby is going but her husband said he would take her. I will go if it rains out the races. My oldest son and his girlfriend are going. I think the 'word' has...

The weather was very nice here, and it is nice again today. Just now I saw that it is 78 degrees. That is way cooler than normal. However, MOST people are happy with... Sat, 5 Jul 2014 13:20:49 EST June 29, 2014 (Sunday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5728606 More rain and thunderstorms last night and today until around noon. What a LOT of rain we've been having, but we also had a LOT of rain at this time last year. Max and Kobe were both on 'Storm Alert' this morning. They are scared of thunder and heavy rain, so Max spent a lot of his morning in my son's sock/underwear cabinet, and Kobe stayed tucked away inside the cabinet along with the kitchen things that I never use. The rain was gone a couple of hours before I got home this afternoon, a... Sun, 29 Jun 2014 21:11:59 EST June 28, 2014 (Saturday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5727896 It rained out the races. There was no rain during the night, but it came a downpour early this morning and it went on and on and on. Guess Hooker Hood will have to be remembered on another Saturday. I got a text around 8:00 AM that everything was canceled. It has rained off and on most of the day. It really depends on where one happens to be at a certain time. I guess that is why they are called 'Scattered Thunderstorms.' <BR> <BR> MORTICIA...How exciting that the driver won the race... Sat, 28 Jun 2014 18:57:50 EST June 27, 2014 (Friday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5727350 No rain in any of the locations where I worked today, and no rain at my house. There was, however, dark clouds throughout the day. They didn't stick around very long each time they appeared, and then it would be bright and sunny again. So, for now, nothing to stop the races from running tomorrow. It is a "Special" race this weekend in Memory of a long time racer in that area, Hooker Hood. He passed away a year or so ago after racing for many years. I've know of him since I was a small c... Fri, 27 Jun 2014 20:53:23 EST June 26, 2014 (Thursday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5726763 Thank you all for your comments on my blog of yesterday. Today was DAY ONE of my 'marathon' days of teaching classes. It is behind me now, and it went very well. I don't mind the classes at all. It is the driving from one location to another that makes me tired. Tomorrow is the same pretty much as today. Actually, it goes on through next Thursday, with only one class on July 4. <BR> <BR> Don't know about the rain. It looked like rain over and over today, and I guess it WAS raining i...

I appreciate that you each take the time to read all of my "Blah, Blah, Blah." <em>334</em> I have just checked the weather for the rest of the week, and it looks like we will be getting rain, on Thurs, Fri, AND Saturday. Maybe not though. I will have to wait and see. We are still having those days that are bright, sunny, and clear one minute, and dark, cloudy and raining the next minute. One should definitely take all of that into... Thu, 26 Jun 2014 00:30:16 EST June 24, 2014 (Tuesday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5725092 Nice day with only a couple of rain showers. Nothing of interest going on other than I had my classes, and I have one more this evening. I am getting popular with the other instructors at the gyms where I teach. Several are planning vacations starting the end of this week and running through next week. They need substitutes for their classes. I am currently booked to sub nine extra classes beginning on Thursday and running through next week. One class is new, and it is a Country/Hip Hop... Tue, 24 Jun 2014 18:34:18 EST June 22, 204 (Sunday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5723799 No rain fell on Saturday so we did get to the race track. We got everything set up and ready to go. People were in the stands waiting for the action to begin when suddenly, it started raining. The spectators came down from the bleachers, and it was announced that we would 'wait and see' about the rain. We did wait for about 45 minutes and then the rain stopped. It was really not too much of a heavy rain, mostly a steady drizzle with loud thunder. <BR> <BR> Then everything went on as s... Mon, 23 Jun 2014 01:54:04 EST June 21, 2014 (Saturday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5722534 Around my house, it is still Friday because I haven't been to sleep yet. Rain was predicted for today and also for tonight, but as of right now, not a drop of rain has fallen. So, unless it comes a storm in the next few hours, we will get to have the races. <BR> <BR> I am always so rushed on race day, that I am doing as much of my logging in as I can before I go to bed. Nothing of interest going on around here, but I did want to wish everyone a GREAT WEEKEND! <BR> <BR> HUGS <BR> Pam Sat, 21 Jun 2014 03:54:56 EST June 20, 2014 (Thursday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5721814 Hello Everyone, <BR> I can't seem to get back into the habit of blogging again. For awhile I was checking in every night, but now it seems that I am too busy or too tired, or too SOMETHING to get in here to write. It is true that nothing is going on that is very interesting to write about. <BR> <BR> Just seeing in my last blog that I mentioned taking Shelby to see the Elvis impersonator. He was FANTASTIC, and the show was excellent. He even gave out scarves like Elvis, and Shelby and I... Fri, 20 Jun 2014 02:36:01 EST June 14, 2014 (Saturday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5717905 No races today due to rain. This is getting to be the norm since we've been having so much rain. <BR> <BR> Since I am not going to be working at the race track, my sister, Shelby, has two tickets to see someone she knows, who is an Elvis impersonator, performing tonight. Ray can't take her because he is doing something at the church, so she asked if I would take her. I think this will be GREAT for her to get out, so of course I will take her. I probably will have a good time, too. <B... Sat, 14 Jun 2014 14:23:36 EST June 12, 2014 (Thursday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5716913 Hello Everyone, <BR> <BR> We are still having heavy rain and thunderstorms. It was cloudy most of the day, and later this afternoon, it began storming. I could hear Max trying to get the cabinet door open so that he could climb inside and wait out the storm. He was having a little trouble, so I opened it for him and told him to climb inside. I propped the door open an inch or two so that he could get out. I really don't think he would have any trouble getting out since he would only hav...

I could say, "I've been BUSY" but I really don't think I've been any busier than what is normal for me. Maybe I just haven't had much to talk about that I felt was worth sharing. <BR> <BR> Nothing new or exciting going on in my life. Just the 'same old, same old.' These afternoon thunderstorms have been occurring almost daily for a week or two with more predicted for all of next week. <BR> <BR> We were rained out again ... Sun, 8 Jun 2014 18:58:03 EST May 28, 2014 (Wednesday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5705704 It has been several day since I have checked in here. It has always been just about the last thing that I do before signing out for the night. There has been so much other stuff that I needed to do that I haven't been getting around to writing here before the deadline or before I would find myself dozing off at the computer. <BR> <BR> I've just read my last blog, and NO, it did not rain out the races, and everything was going on schedule until around 8:30 PM. It was then that very heavy...

I have checked the weather for this weekend, and it looks like it may rain again on Saturday. You know what rain on Saturday means. No races! Can't plan on it though, so I will have to wait and see. Like last weekend, I have a lot that I would like to get done this weekend, but I hope it doesn't rain us out, since it rained us out last weekend. Can't change the weather though, so I can only wait and see. <em>12</em> <BR> <BR> I hope you...

I really wish I could have been outside, other than just walking to and from the truck. <BR> <BR> Is anyone doing anything special for the long weekend? I will go to my sister, Kay's house on Monday. She has a pool, so her place is usually where we gather during the summer months. <BR> <BR> Take care, ALL, and keep in touch. <BR> <BR> HUGS <BR> Pam Thu, 22 May 2014 02:05:00 EST May 20, 2014 (Tuesday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5699652 Here we go again with classes begin canceled for the summer. I don't think this year will be quite like last year though when I had 11 hours of work taken off my week. I don't see that happening, but I already know of at least 4 hours that will be canceled for the summer break. That won't be so bad. <BR> <BR> My son, the teacher, gets out of school on Friday. I hope he can find things to keep him busy this summer. He coaches football at the high school where he teaches, so that will tak...

I usually save checking in here until about the last thing before I 'close shop' for the night. However, I have been sitting in the recliner, falling asleep, and 'closing shop' early. <BR> <BR> Nothing much going on. It has been a little cooler here, and we had rain yesterday morning, so the races were canceled for Saturday afternoon and evening. I really didn't mind much because I really wanted a day at home. <BR> ... Mon, 19 May 2014 01:11:02 EST May 15, 2014 (Thursday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5696012 Thursday, my 'light' day, but it is never 'light' although that is the day that I have the fewest classes. It is also the day that I tend to fill up with errands and appointments, so I am actually more tired from errands and appointments than I am from teaching a lot of classes. My next few Thursdays are 'booked' with appointments because I have procrastinated about getting things done. (I still wear the "QUEEN OF PROCRASTINATION" crown). <em>285</em> That "BEST" stands for "BEST AT P...

It is still a little cloudy, but I think the rain is gone for now. It is warm, so I don't mind the rain too much. <BR> <BR> MORTICIA, your chinchillas sound so cute. I do not know anyone else who raises chinchillas. How many do you have?...

I don't really have anything to talk about. Now that Cricket is gone, I don't have much cat news. All of my other cats are not doing anything to 'make the news.' Cricket was the one who was always with me following me around and wanting fresh food every 30 minutes. The others were extremely well fed because he didn't eat the food, he just wanted it served to him. They would eat some of the food, and since Cric...

It looks has spring may be here to stay. I don't want to get too excited though, because around here, that could change in the blink of an eye. <BR> <BR> Nothing much going on, so I will just wish you all a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY! <BR> <BR> HUGS <BR> Pam Tue, 6 May 2014 22:46:16 EST May 5, 2014 (Monday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5688599 Hello Everyone, <BR> <BR> Nice, warm, and sunny day! It would have been a great day to be outside, but I was inside all day. I taught all of my classes at three gyms, so I was either teaching a class or driving to another location to teach classes. Same old, same old. I hope you all had a nice day, preferably outside, if your weather was nice, warm, and sunny like it was here. Take care, ALL! <BR> <BR> HUGS <BR> Pam Tue, 6 May 2014 02:44:21 EST May 4, 2014 (Sunday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5686874 Hello Everyone, <BR> I can't thank each of you enough for your thoughts, prayers, comments, goodies, and support that you've given me both before and after Cricket passed away on Thursday. <BR> <BR> Although, it was very hard to see him go, it did not come as a surprise to me. All of this past week, he'd been steadily going downhill. He'd stopped eating, and he was drinking very little water even though it was offered to him regularly. He became unable to walk due to weakness. I found m... Sun, 4 May 2014 03:00:43 EST R.I.P CRICKET (March 1, 1996 - May 1, 2014) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5685195 Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers for Cricket and me. My precious 'old fellow' passed away peacefully this afternoon in his sleep. <BR> <BR> I knew he was steadily going downhill. Yesterday, he could barely move his legs, and he only drank a small amount of water. Today, he was the same, only lifting his head when my son or I would go near him. He knew he was loved, and we knew that he loved us until the very end. <BR> <BR> I had a little conversation with Cricket ...

I have been trying to get myself prepared for his passing, however, I don't think one is ever 'prepared' for someone they love to pass away. As long as he is not showing any signs of pain, I am leaving it up to him to decide when he is ready to cross over the "Rainbow Bridge." If he begins showing signs of pain, or having seizures then I will have to do something differently. He knows he is loved, and he will always be re...

It had to be towed to an auto repair shop on Friday night. It was fixed on Saturday morning, and I made it to the race track on time. My truck is old, so I guess I should expect things to wear out on it. Anyway, I am just glad that it was able to get fixed on Saturday morning. <BR> <BR> Cricket has taken a turn for the worse again. Please keep him in your prayers. I don't think he is going to 'bounce back' this time around. He did seem a...

I will write more tonight if I get home in time. <BR> <BR> Have a GREAT WEEKEND! <BR> <BR> HUGS <BR> Pam Sat, 26 Apr 2014 11:08:09 EST April 24, 2014 (Thursday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5679922 Nice sunny day with a lot of rain in the late afternoon and evening. It is supposed to be warm and sunny all day tomorrow, so tonight's rain probably won't interfere with the races on Saturday night. <BR> <BR> Nothing much going on around here today or tonight, so I will just wish you all a GREAT FRIDAY, and get myself out of here. <BR> <BR> Have a WONDERFUL WEEKEND! <BR> <BR> HUGS <BR> Pam Fri, 25 Apr 2014 02:13:05 EST April 23, 2014 (Wednesday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5679124 Hello Everyone, <BR> Another great day with such nice weather. I would love to say that we are done with cold or cool weather, but since our weather is so unpredictable, I am not going to go out on a limb and say that. It really has been nice for the past few days though. <BR> <BR> <BR> Nothing out of the ordinary comes to mind for me to write about. So I will close and try to get to bed a little earlier tonight than usual.

Mine was OK. I didn't do anything, but I sort of liked it that way. My sisters are both nearby, and we see each other all of the time. One of my sisters, Kay, has two small great grandchildren, and Shelby has a great grandson, but we don't ever see any of them, so they wouldn't have come even if we would have had a family get together. So it was fine just as it was. <BR> <BR> I was worn out from working the race track....

I do not know where all of the time goes. I want you all to know how much I appreciate each of you who reads this 'stuff' that I write. Tomorrow is race day, and since it hasn't rained, I am sure everything will go on. I feel like a kid who is returning to school after a summer break. I sort of dread going back, but I know after I've been there for a short time, I will get back into the 'swing of it.' I just hope it isn't cold. It is supposed to be in the 70's during ...

It was a little warmer today, although I am not sure about that. It wasn't warm, but it didn't feel as cool as yesterday. <BR> <BR> Shelby came out to the YMCA and joined today. I think she has one more week of her home health care service. She really does plan on beginning the Silver Sneakers classes as soon as the health care workers are finished with the therapy at her home. I t...

It was still cool today, but I guess I shouldn't complain since some of you are getting SNOW! Hopefully, it will begin to warm up in ALL of our locations soon. <BR> <BR> Take care, and keep in touch. <BR> <BR> HUGS <BR> Pam Tue, 15 Apr 2014 22:45:39 EST April 14, 2014 (Monday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5672500 Just the usual busy Monday, with tomorrow being a busy Tuesday, and so on and so forth. Nothing newsworthy about THAT. <em>30</em> <BR> <BR> What IS newsworthy is that it is WINTER here again, or at least it feels like it. I imagine some of you are dealing with the same thing. How very disappointing that we've had such nice days, and now it is COLD again. It is supposed to be like this through the end of the week. So that means if it doesn't rain out the races, it will be cold over...

Kobe, my 4 year old male cat, hates it when it storms or even if it is only raining. He walks around scrunched down really low, and tries to find a hiding place. None of my other cats seem to care one way or another what the weather is outside. <BR> <BR> Nothing of interest going on around here. I think I will go to bed soon. This is a very early bedtime for me, but I've done all that I wanted to do around the house. I co...

I got a call yesterday that today's races were being rescheduled for Sunday. I don't want to work there on Sunday, so it will be next weekend before my work at the race track will begin. That was fine with me because last week, my son and I did my taxes almost to the finish, but not quite. Today, we were able to finish the taxes and get it sent in and off my mind. Every year I say I am going to do a better job of keeping my paperwork organized, and do the taxes in... Sat, 12 Apr 2014 21:19:20 EST
