Another Racing Season Starts

I love NASCAR and tonight is the Budweiser Shootout. It’s very short but hey, it’s a race and Daytona is next weekend. Some of you know that a tornado hit Highland, Ar the night of Feb. 5th. It looks like a bomb hit  it. I was not in the tornado nor did I receive any damage. I know people who lost everything and I know people that were like me and had no damage. Everytime I go through Highland and that is every day, I can’t help crying. There is so much destruction I hurt for all those involved. I don’t really know why I get so emotional. Lynn and I lost everything we owned once, not in a tornado but in a fire. Maybe that is why it bothers me so much because we have been in their shoes.

Anyway, here is my Scrappy Bargello I made from Bonnie Hunter’s website.


And of course, Jazzy, getting her belly rubbed.


Hope everyone has a great weekend.

    Freda, I am so glad you & Lynn are OK!! And I think it’s a normal reaction. To me personally, it’s unsettling because it is often such a random pattern of damage, not to mention the helpless emotion that hits. Hang in there! And don’t hesitate to let us know if there is anything we can do!! And I LOVE the bargello!! Enjoy your start of racing season!!! You deserve a good fun break!!
