weekend on the ice
- This weekend I intended to head South. The weather looked a little
iffy so at the last minute we decided North. I picked up the Hertz
Lincoln Town Car on the way and went to pick up my pal Baby Bing. As
usual Bing was all smiles and ready to talk racing. We headed to
Watertown where we would spend the night in the Kings Palace in
downtown Watertown. Saturday it was off to Minden. We went through
customes in 30 seconds. They must have known I had the 2009 track
chasing leader with me. The title does have clout. Minden was good so
we had a few track dogs and then it was back to the states. My budget
does not let me make calls in Canada so I had to wait till we were
back in NY to call head quarters to see which way to head. We called
the 2008 couples champions who told us our planned NY and NH tracks
were still racing. We got to Syracuse and decided to ride around a
little to do some sight seeing. It was then off to the Casino where
next week we may rent a horse and buggy after the night I had there.
We put our pennies together to get a motel for the night. We were up
at the crack of Dawn and on our way to Summit. I decided that the
Lincoln should have the best parking space so I backed up the
neighbors driveway. This worked for over an hour till this 7 foot
he/she or whatever slammed her fist on my window. I moved to let it
out thinking it might be an ax murderer or something. We drove back
to town to let Bing give his breakfest back before heading to a new
parking spot on the other side of the lake. One of New Yorks finest
did pay us a visit Saturday so I knew the odds of being bothered
Sunday was slim. We watched a while longer and then it was time to
head home. The Flyers game and part of the race got me home. We had a
good weekend. Baby Bing is now up to 14 and I sit at 9.
This story is partly true. I am even reading some of this crap for
the first time.
I am just trying to keep my head on straight today. I dropped Stacey
off today for surgery at 6 and am trying to think positive till I get
the call that everything went well.
