New Year Report 14th January 2020
It’s been over a month since I attended my last racing event, Christmas and New Year are over and we are now heading towards the middle of January.
At Christmas, I made a last minute decision to head to Austin, Texas to spend the holiday with my daughter Carla.
Early on Monday morning of the 23rd December , I left my car at my buddy Don Simpsons place in Russell and he drove me to Ottawa Airport. From Ottawa I flew Air Canada to Toronto where I got my connection to Austin.
I was in Texas for six days and it was great to see my grand kids Benji and Sophia again.
While I was there I had the use of Carla’s Mazda to run around in.
It spent an enjoyable few days in the sunshine before I was back in Canada’s cold on Sunday 29th Dec.
I was lucky, and just missed a big freezing rain storm that caused chaos to flights the following day.
So far, January has been milder than normal and at this time , the local ice racing is yet to start. Colder weather is in the forecast, so hopefully I will soon have some racing to report.
