Brickyard 400

I don't know how I did it, but I got Steve to take a day off today! What fun it was to see Nascar's Brickyard 400 at the Indianapolis speedway. Nascar is celebrating the 15th year of racing in Indy, and yet we have never been to see them. Actually, the Nascars were quite a bit slower than Indy cars and the experience didn't feel quite as exciting. Nevertheless it was wonderful to get away from our church work and experience another world! It was soooo hot today sitting at the track in the sunlight at 86 degrees with no breeze. We took the Solstice covertable and had the top down experiencing the hot sun all the way there and back. A tall glass of ice water and a good luke-warm shower was certainly welcome when we walked into our air-conditioned home.
