Wow !! I just realized this is my 100th blogiversary!! Lol, not sure if I spelt that word the right way. This weekend was a rather fun relaxing weekend. We took Ashley and went out to our friends place where they have a bunch of old cars left from one of the races they hold each year. So, Ashley got behind the wheel and drove around the track several times. She had a blast!!! The funny thing about it all, she had such good control flying around the track with a license magnet on the back allowing her to drive, and she's taking driving lessons right now!!! Don't think her instructor would appreciate seeing her racing at high speeds.

Michelle and I got a turn driving with her. I am so sore!!! My back hurts, my butt hurts , my ribs are sore from laughing and bouncing around so much!!! We all had a blast. Then we sat around the fire and yakked away until the wee hours of the night. Ashley did very well on the track. Then Neil got into another car with her and was going to teach her how to drive a standard. They didn't get to far because the car kept stalling. So it was parked out on the field and we moved onto something else.
The above picture was Curtis and I backing into them to try and give the car a push start. We were in the yellow car, Neil and Ash were in the blue one.
Lol, she had to give a few stomps on the roof. Wrong kind of 'jump start' Ash!!! Some of the vehicles needed gas and oil, Neil and M. to the rescue!!!! That picture was a little dark, sorry 'bout that. It did lead up to a beautiful sunset photo.
Then it was off to the house to sit by the fire. The very top photo is of an old tractor that has long been retired. So I took the picture with a Sepia tone to it to try and Antique the photo. Here's a color snap of the tractor growing in the weeds, LOL.
It was a perfect night. Good friends, lots of laughter, I love relaxing casual nights like that.
Lisa, Michelle, and 'moi'. We all sat on an old carriage that's sitting just off the way from the fire pit.
The above picture is me sitting on the carriage, very Sleepy Hollow from the smoke. Hope you enjoyed the pictures, from what you could see,it was a little dark. Take care and have an excellent week everyone!!!
