1. On Memorial day Terry switched the TV over to catch the end of the Indy car race. I was anxious to see to see how the drivers that I knew, were doing. I always check the girl power Danica Patrick. I then have to see where "Dancing With the Stars "winner and three time Indy 500 winner, Helio Castroneves is running. Then there is last year's winner and Ashley Judd's husband, Dario Franchitti. All of that went out the window when I saw this:
Dollar General also has a Nascar sponsorship. How many off brand batteries do they need to sell to make the $$ these sponsorships cost? I'm not against it. I just had not thought of them being in the Tide or Penzoil caliber.
2. Another random thought is the "Hooters restaurant in my neighboring town closed. Businesses come and go in this economy but keep in mind, that "Hooters" is about 14 miles from a Marine base that is home to approximately 7,500 active Marines. If they can't make a go of a "Hooters" here, there is no hope for the rest of them.
3. I mailed 3 paperback books to my sister last week. They were wrapped in paper and taped with packing tape, like the Hope Diamond was in there. (It was sent to the Smithsonian via Postal mail on Nov. 8, 1958.) It was also stamped "Media".
I get my books by hunting garage sales and flea markets and then take them to the resale book store to trade for the ones I really want. So, I have very little money involved in them. I then read and pass along the good ones to my sister or my daughters.
Yesterday my sister called me and said, " I just got something in the mail you sent me." "Yes you did.", I was happy to confirm. But then she explained all she got was the wrapper stuck in a plastic bag with a note from the post office saying it arrived in her town like this and that sometimes things happen. No......"things" don't just happen. I've gotten a magazine with the cover torn. Ok. , I've also gotten mail wrinkled like it went through the conveyor belt. That packing tape is strong stuff.
So, someone got some good summer reading. Now I am on the hunt for those books again. Wish me luck.
Have you run into anything that has made you go "Hmmmmm?"
