The highlight of my year is always our 3 day PTA retreat (coming soon). The highlight of 'the husband's' year is attending the Rolex 24 Hour car race at Daytona. I dutifully attend with him but truth be told....would prefer to stay home.We are Porsche fans.....and sadly our teams have done poorly for the last 2 years. Clearly they are lacking engine strength!
This year's crowd was the largest ever attending......crammed in everywhere there were tent campers.....some more worthy then others of being called a tent. I can NOT imagine any event that would make me consider tent camping.......well....at least with my current age.
……of course there are those who travel in the style……which I'd prefer!
NO.....we do not stay and watch the entire 24 hours!!!! The race begins at 2:40 PM...and obviously runs through the night which makes for exciting viewing for those hardy folks who stay awake at the track.
I amuse myself the best I can. In the Porsche hospitality paddock, artist Bill Patterson peaked my interest. I watched as he turned a blank canvas into an action painting in about 2 hrs. The painting was then auctioned off to benefit the Austin Hatcher Foundation whose focus is on curing childhood cancers. This one was sold for over $3,000. I sure wish I had the knack of blending colors like he does!
