DONKEYS ARE GOOD, RACING HAS STARTED.........!!


Needless to say, I had a "fabulous" time at the 1st race of the season.  I WON the main event, got a big gaudy trophy, (they are the best kind), and a money envelope.  What more could you ask for.........? LOL

Lynn finished 2nd his first time on a track.  I think he's really going to be good, he has the mind set and in fact John said he was right behind me for most of the race. 


Hopefully by the next race in about 2 weeks, John will have my dirt car finished, so I don't have to beat my poor asphalt car to death on the dirt.   

The races were suppose to start at 1pm..........that sounds like being finished by 4pm, which would have gotten us home in plenty of time to feed the "herd".  By the time the 1st day (opportunities to excel) were taken care of it was almost dark.  We had called Doug and told him we'd be home when we got there, we were going to eat.  Figured they couldn't be anymore POed than they already were when roundup didn't start by 5pm.  

Got home about 8:15PM  and you talk about a rough crowd?  They were on the porch of the feed room, not all of them, but enough that the porch was full.........LOL  Of course feeding that late, it would take them until midnight to finish eating so they could go out.  So John and I sat up watching TV.  I don't help him let them out, we do it so differently, they would be very confused.  But when he went out Linda had set her alarm and came out to help him.  That's dedication, to leave a nice warm bed to go out in the cold, it was already 29 degrees and falling.

BOAZ AND JUSTIN TRYING TO ENTICE LYNN TO GIVE UP SOME TREATS, LEDDY AND QUILLA IN THE BACKGROUND MORE INTERESTED IN WILD FOOD

Thanks guys, now on to the asphalt track. That's not until March 4, in fact between the 2 tracks, that's the next Hornet race. But John should have time to get the dirt car finished with such a long "rest", with no excuses, at least I hope so. I made sure to thank the promoter for the "impressive" trophies, but he can tone them down a little and us Hornet drivers will be just as happy. We don't want him to run out of money before the season is over...........LOL
