Happy St Patrick's Day to all those who celebrate it. I don't know what it represents, all I know is that people drink green beer. I would love to find that little leprechaun with the pot of gold though.
An Irish Blessing.......
Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!
Today was spent getting all our gear ready for us to take away for the weekend. Tony packed the car when he came home tonight. We are going to Ardrossan over on Yorke Peninsula, about a 90 minute drive from Adelaide. We are going to do some crabbing and hopefully we will catch some! The munchkin (Katie) is also coming with us.
My sister and brother in law invited us to come when Katie wanted to go and do some crab fishing. Should be good to get away.
Tony had to go and buy a prepaid internet as you can bet your bottom dollar he will get a phone call while we are away and will have to dial in to work. Even when he takes his holidays he always gets phone calls regarding work. Grrrrr!!!!!
Today was the start of the Clipsal 500, a touring car race. The main race is held between the V8 Supercars of Holden and Ford. This race is held over two days, Saturday and Sunday. Thursday and Friday is racing days for V8 Utes, Formula Ford, GT Championships and Aussie Racing Cars.
This year will be the first year Tony hasn't gone, he usually gets invited into a corporate box by one of the contractors he uses at work.
He said he felt very sad when he had to ring them and decline their invitation, hehehehe. Still, he's going to have tons more fun with me and Katie and Robyn and Bob!!!!!!!
The race is run through the streets of Adelaide. We get people from all over Australia and the world for the 4 days. The organisers are expecting crowds in excess of 280,000 for the 4 days. They use the same circuit that they used when Adelaide used to hold the Formula 1 Grand Prix.
