Royal Friday

Happy Royal Friday! 

It's almost race day... 2nd race of the 2011 Nelcar Season.  I better get some shots from Matt's first race in the Legends car up now.  I wasn't going to share too many until we get the car wrapped / painted and it looks pretty (and has our sponsors logos on it), but that hasn't happened yet.  So for now, please picture the #8 in Bruins black & gold colors...

These are from a very cold April 16 at NHMS... it even started to snow!

I finally broke out my Simpson crew gloves (needed them to keep my hands warm).  Here's my view from inside the trailer at some point during the cold, windy day...

Did I mention it was cold that day?  I had on 3 layers, including 2 sweatshirts, and was still freezing.  I hiked it a mile or so to the infield snack shack for hot chocolate.  NHMS has been working on replacing their scoreboard and I happened upon pieces of the the old one on my way...

Apparently they just used new panels to cover up the old Winston logo for the past few years.  That's the big fancy new scoreboard on the right.

Here's a few cool shots from Chris at rpm.printroom.com ...

Hope everyone has a great weekend.  I'll leave you with the Friday Fill_Ins...

1. I love to snuggle with my honey and the dogs.

2. A laugh and a smile.

3. It's how you handle the battle, not whether you won or lost this game.

4. You can't argue with unreasonable people, so don't tell me to even try!

5. Well, would you look at that, it's Friday.

6. Go away spring peepers, bring back my fall and leaf peepers.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to Fringe, tomorrow my plans include "hey, hey ... it's race day!" - hopefully I'll get some knitting time in this week and Sunday, I want to hang out at home with the dogs, knit, relax...!
