Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Another car event

We had fun at the demolition derby last night.  I had never been to one before.  Boy the abuse a car can take and keep on running!!  It didn't start until 8:00 so we got home late and when I woke up this morning at 6:00 I turned over and went back to sleep.
I got up at 7:00 and then went for my walk.  Only walked 4 miles because of the late start and we had things to do but still it was a good walk.  I walked around town and around all the cemeteries.
Took these couple of pictures while walking.

Very quiet around town, didn't see anyone and only a couple of cars passed.
This last picture I took once I got back home.  The first tree is in our property and you can see my swing under it.

The demolition derby last night was the opening for a car show this weekend at the fair grounds so we went again today.  It was a bit disappointing because there were hardly any cars there but I thought this one was nice.
At 5:00 there was another car event.  This one was a Mud Bog.  Never been to one of those before either but I really didn't enjoy this mud thing.  We left after an hour and a half.  Where did we go?  To the State Mountain Brewery for pizza. : )  

 Hope you had a sunny kind of day.

  1. The trees are changing so fast. Amazing what difference two weeks can make. I've never been to a demolition derby. I probably never will :)
    Enjoy your Sunday!

  2. I've never been to a Demolition Derby but I always thought it would be fun!! LOVE those Trees in your shots!

  3. I have never been to a demolition derby either, but car shows are fun. We used to have two old vintage Mustangs so we have been to a few car shows. I like the "Coke" car you photographed. Brings back memories of drive-ins like A & W where I used to really like to go as a child! It was always a special treat. Sounds like you have had a fun and interesting weekend. Enjoy your Sunday!

  4. I wish we still had curb service.
    Thanks for the pictures. Love the red car. I have been to a demolition derby before and often watched them on TV. I've been to several classic car shows and enjoy them too. What a fun weekend you had. Mary Jo

  5. I always think those demolition derbies must be rough on the human participants! Glad that you are finding ways to keep having fun!
