Had a good time at the car show. Quite a few friends stopped by to say hi, it was good to see everybody.
|LARRY'S YELLOW CAMARO DOESN'T HARDLY SHOW UP|
|WE WERE HANDING OUT DISCOUNT TICKETS TO THE RACES AND CANDY........!!|
|KYLER AND GRANDPA HEADING OVER TO SEE IF ANY OF OUR CARS WON AN AWARD.|
We didn't, we thought maybe JR's our grandson's late model might win something. The judges spent a lot of time looking at it, but no awards for us, guess they just thought it was neat. My favorite car there did win. It was a 1939 black shiny Chevy coupe, boy was it pretty.
We had a logistics problem in the morning. Larry was bringing his car in on his trailer, but we had 3 cars and 2 trailers to haul to the park. After chores John put the bronco up on the trailer and hauled it in. It took awhile for him to find someone in charge and then they really didn't tell him where our 4 entries should park. That's why there is nothing around us in the picture I guess. Actually they had plenty of room for all the cars, so we could all spread out. JR's late model was already loaded, so when John got back, we loaded up my car and headed for the park.
The last time the Hornet had ran, it sounded and ran just fine. Started it up and the fan belt was squealing extremely loud, ear splitting squeal. And it wouldn't hardly run, probably something in one of the injectors that shouldn't be there. Got it up on the trailer, got to the park, started it up and it squealed a little and ran just fine.......GRRRRR........!!!
Got ready to go, and JR said he'd drive the Bronco home,which would have meant only one trip home for John............except in the frantic hauling cars, loading cars and changing clothes in the morning, John had left the keys for the Bronco.......in his blue jeans. You will notice in the picture above, he doesn't have on blue jeans...!! LOL So they decided to haul the late model and the bronco and leave my Hornet there. I told John if someone stole it, I wasn't going to be very happy. LOL
Kyler wanted to come out and see the donkeys, so they came out with us, Kyler and Becky saw the donkeys while we were unloading and then we all headed back to town, to hopefully get my Hornet and then go eat Pizza........!!!
It was a fun day, we don't get to see JR's family very often, except at the track. Then we are all too busy to "visit". This wasn't their week to have Hunter, he's with him mom in Phoenix.
I don't know if the fly masks are going to make it until the fly season is over or not. Some of them are really getting ratty, when you can see an eyeball, it's probably not keeping the flies away from their eyes very good. I'll order a bunch of new ones from Colorful Equine in the spring.
For the most part, Gizmo the little brown mini mule has finally been accepted as a member of the herd, Boaz wouldn't let Gizmo get close to him for a long time. But lately we've been calling them the odd couple, they are usually together when we find them. One reason is he has settled down a lot. When he first got here he was very reactive, if he thought you might have a cookie, he would quickly move towards you, leaving a trail of irritated donkeys in his path. He's slowed down and they don't react to him as much as they did. I'm really surprised someone hasn't adopted him, he'd make a great horse companion and he's got a wonderful personality.
