July 4th weekend

Well, it is July 4th weekend and here I am with nothing special to do. I think I will do some sewing. Maybe make a quilt. I have some sun bonnet squares and may just put them together in a quilt. My sewing machine is a Bernina and I am still getting used to it. So far it is pretty neat! It does all kinds of things and is a big help in sewing anything!

Dale Earnhardt, Jr. wins!

On 7/2 Dale Earnhardt, Jr. won the Nationwide Race at Daytona. He was driving a car that looked like his father's Wrangler car with the #3 on it. What a great ending!! I think he had a co-pilot with him :-)- his Dad. It has been a long time since he has won a race but this was an important one. Tony Eury, Jr. was his crew chief, Richard Childress let him use the #3, and his crew were the #8 team's crew. DEI worked with him, too. Jr. said that this is the last time driving the #3.

It was great to see the end of the race and all the fans standing with 3 fingers in the air. The emotions were at a high - even Tony Eury, Jr. was crying!
