Start Your Engines!!

Oh it's here again!
 Memorial weekend in Indiana!!
 Get ready for the Indianapolis 500 Race!!

This race makes up for all the cold long hard winters
 that we have to go through.

I am happy to say that I have qualified once again to compete in this great event . . . I have a wondereful sponser and this morning was spent getting photos of the drivers with their race cars . . .

This is the photo that was used for my press release in the newspapers. I also had extra copies made to I can sign them and send to my race friends when requests are made . . .

. . . Now this is what I am talking about! Here I am waiting for the prerace activities to be over with then it will be time to take the track . . . this to me is the most nervous part of the day . . .


. . . Once the race starts I just focus on the task and hope for the best . . . I purr that there will be no accidents today and all the drivers will be safe . . .


. . .  It isn't about winning the race to me, please don't tell my sponser that, it is about all being together with family and friends for a fun day . . .



. . . and not loosing sight that Memorial Day is a day of remembering the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the United States Armed Forces. To you I say Bless and Thank you.

Gracie, is there no end to your talents? You never fail to impress us!

MoMo said...

Yay for Gracie!!!! Yes, we are a little late, but you know how it is with SS on the road.

We had great fun meeting up in Budapest and we missed having you there.

SS was walking down from the Prague Castle when she met a young kitty who looked like you, with just slightly longer hair. She took pics and will do a post when she gets home.

Wow, we had no idea you was such a celeb! Thanks for coming by and giving hugs about our Elliott! Your comments are appreciated
