Daytona 500

Well, here it is, 7:30 on a Sunday morning and I’m awake typing a post???   What am I…… CRAZY????  Oh wait!  Did I say awake??   Well, sort of…..   The race is four hours from now but I need to get my ‘race face’ on.  Mrs S and the dogs are still sleeping but me??  I’m up and rarin’ to go!!  See??   Do I look like I need more sleep? ….ZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzz………………
Umm… I’ll be back
I ended up NOT going back to bed!  Which will probably be a good thing tonight!!!  But I gotta say!!  You people are EARLY risers!!  Ya Freaks!!  LOL!!   Nothing like 3 dogs licking your face to wake you up early!!  Wait!!  What is that smell??   OH MAN!!!!!!  I stepped in dog you-know-what!!!!!!  BRB!
The race is about to start!!   I have yesterday’s Buffalo Wings warming and Mrs S is making Deviled Eggs!  AKA, ‘Mom’s Best Eggs!!’ (Her Mom!)  lol!  They ARE good!!!!  YUM!!!!!!!!
I’ve been looking forward to this race for months!!   I’m a Dale Jr. fan and I just hope he doesn’t wreck!!  OMG!!  Chubby Checker is performing!!  I guess they are doing a ‘retro’ thing.  I’m surprised Keith Richards isn’t there!!  lol!   Now Michael McDonald is on stage!!  That guy REALLY needs new material!!  OH, and Cool And The Gang???  Start the damn race!!!!!  OK!!  Brooks and Dunn!!  More like it!!  LOL!!
I weighed myself again today and I have lost 45 lbs in the past 4 months!  Yay for me but I haven’t been dieting!!  I do feel better but I think I need a physical SOON!  Too much weight loss, TOO fast!
OK!!  I think the race is actually starting!!  Enjoy Caroldee and Aimee!!!!!
OK!  I’ve had questions about my Buffalo Wings so here’s the deal!  EASY!!!!!   Buy a 4lb bag of frozen chicken wing pieces, place them in a foil-lined baking pan and bake them at 400F for an hour.  Also buy a bottle of Frank’s RedHot Buffalo Wing Sauce.  If you can’t find Frank’s Buffalo Wing Sauce, buy the ‘Original, but you will have to add butter!  There are instructions on the bottle.  When the baking is done, place them in a crockpot, pour in the Frank’s and toss them!!  Set your crockpot to ‘warm’.  Serve with celery sticks and bleu cheese salad dressing and you are good to go!
Great race so far!!  It’s anybody’s to win!  Mrs S took our little Dachshund, Baxter, to the Seal Beach this afternoon!  He got to use his short legs too run through the sand and I can tell that he loved it!!  The other 2 dogs are SOO jealous!!  But it was Baxter’s birthday!!  He’s a big boy at 3!!  LOL!!  He’s a long-haired, miniature and the handsomest little dog you could imagine!!
Baxter 5
Baxter 6
Holy Crap!!  I’m not sure how many of you are NASCAR fans but this is a GREAT race!!   Very few cautions, no wrecks ….. well, one small one!  But I’m looking for a wild finish!!   I LOVE this shit!!!!!  WOOOOOO!!!!!!!
Another restart with 13 laps to go!!!!  4 wide!!!!!!
F**k!!  Blaney is out!!  He has minimal sponsorship and I always pull for him!  And he was right there!
At this point it’s rearview mirror racing!  10 laps to go!  33 cars on the lead lap!!!  WOW!!  Go Jeff Burton!!!!!!!!!
But he has a rearview mirror full of Dale Jr!!!
Next week they race here in So Cal and I already have my tickets!!!!  At the start of the race, it’s the loudest thing you have ever heard!!  It bounces you off of your seat!!!  I can’t wait!!  LOL
Dammit!!  Ryan Newman won!  But that’s OK!!  He’s a great driver and a nice guy!!  It was a GREAT race!!!!!!!!
 I have one more Beatles song that I want to play then it’s back to Country.  It was fun but really..  I’ve been having withdrawls!  But I promised certain people and it was fun!  Plus, I have downloaded some new stuff that I think you’ll like……. that is, if you people even listen!!  LOL   But that’s OK too!  I mainly do it for me and to annoy HaphazardKat…. who I think is starting to come around!  HAH!  Plus, I need to get the R U Serious ‘theme song’ back up here!!  That will be tomorrow. 
I hope you all have the day off tomorrow and have a great short week!
OK!!  This is the ‘R U Serious" Theme Song!!   Don’t like it???   Tough!!  HEH!!

    I beat you up.  I was up at 6:15 AM and remember I am 2 hours ahead of you.  Enjoy the race!

  3. CAROL says:

    YEp but I slept in so I would not be forced to go to SLEEP during the boring times of the race. Is there any time that is boring? race time is now 3 hours away.. I am sooo ready!  : )

  4. Jill says:

    HA!  i was up at 4:30 AM cuz the kids have trained the dogs to get up with them during their winter session at school.  now that the session is over, the kids sleep in but the dogs still think it’s time to play……ugh!   reprogramming will commence immediately!
    enjoy the race!

    I’m up at 5 everyday so you don’t sound too crazy.
    I did my snow scooping chores and now have the TV on waiting for the race.
    Not sure what time it will be on here but it coincides with nap time for sure.
    Happy Sunday race day!

    I was up at 7:30 this morning, also! But I peed and went right back to bed.
    That last blog was hilarious. I think I’ve met the guy in that "old email." Ha!! And imagine my surprise when I realized you hadn’t gotten your pilot’s license after all but were enjoying a stack of greasy "wings." I must remember not to over-think your space. Hahahhaa!!!!
    Enjoy the race…

  7. Kat says:

    I was up at 4:30 this morning heading out to work!!
    *plunks my plate onto my blog* where’s my wings????!!!

  8. Laoch says:

    Are these the kind of wings which cause tears of heat pain to run down your cheeks?

  9. xEOD says:

    I just can’t get in to racing…it’s too much like watching what’s going on inside my head:  lots of really fast things chasing each other around in circles, and occasionally smashing in to one another.  The only difference?  There’s no "flags" in my brain.  RACE ON!!And you call a "thing" with Chubby Checker, Michael MacDonald and Cool and the Gang "retro"?  Boy, aren’t you generous?  I was thinking that someone had been busy desecrating graves to dig up those fossils!  Was Mozart not available, or did they think him too snooty?  LMAO!Love your dog!  My grandmother had one when I was growing up…a pudgy short haired named Max.  He was the coolest little dog you’d ever want!

  11. TheSpeedofLife says:

    Hey, hey, hey, how’s it going??  Like WHoA, Kat visited…I know, I know I’m missed by many LOL  Glad you enjoyed your race.  I was at a baby shower–waaaaay better than watching cars drive around a ring wasting tons of gas, oil and polluting our air ROFL!!  Put the pitch fork DOWN! Geez hahaha.

  14. nodope says:

    Thanks for the blow-by-blow (or is that lap-by lap?) since I didn’t get to see the race. I’ll robably look for a copy to dl or at least an encore stream online maybe but at least I got your take on it. Baxter’s too cool all belly-up like that.
    ‘Later Bob-cat

  15. ~*~((>JC<))~*~ says:

    errr sounds like to much caffiene this morning…*innocent look* Hey those hotwings sound good. I will have to try that and a crock pot too huh?

  16. Bridget says:

    Yipee, yipee…I had the day off but sad to say, I will pay for it the rest of the week trying to catch up. Saw parts of the race from the casino…. girls night out ya know 😉

  17. linda says:

    go matt k go! (17)
    ha ha

  18. Kat says:

    Dude…Country music and a blow by blow of a Nascar race…I….I…I’m speechless.

  19. MizAngie says:

    Isn’t it weird? I can absolutely see the purpose in kicking a ball back and forth on a field, but no point at all in cars going round and round on a track. To each his own…
    I disagree with your wing thing, though. We serve ’em with RANCH dressing, not blue cheese. I know, I know – blue cheese is more traditional. However, in Texas, we serve EVERYTHING with Ranch dressing!!!

  20. Gena says:

    Hiya..Bob, sorry for haven’t been here for along time, I trust all is well with you, it’s my new space, i’m going to delete my old space soon. If you’ve been added me on your friend list, plz delete my old one and accept this one, thanks you. Hope to see you soon, take care. Gena xxx

  21. Twila says:

    Hey Bob!  Yeah, you SHOULD get to the doctor!  45 lbs in 4 months!? That’s way too much too fast.  BTW, been wondering, is Ryan Newman related to Paul Newman?  Son maybe?  Just curious.
