Tractor Race 2012!

I can almost feel the earth shake…and can anticipate the thunderous roar, upon the words: “Start your engines!”

We’re a few days into the new year…we’re being teased with some warm weather today…and, consequently, I’m sooo looking forward to the social event of the year in my neighborhood: The Tractor Race!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Its

Jockeying for position. The race is on!

Its our chance to party out on the deck, or by the pool, for a few hours.  At 5pm, we race our lawn tractors with total abandon for about 5 minutes, and then hit the “after party.”  Did I mention throwing waterballoons at, or using a supersoaker on, your fellow racers?  Its not only allowed, its encouraged!  Additionally, the race leader runs the risk of also being pelted (soaked) by the spectators lining the route!

 And, oh yeah…the race winner takes home the trophy for a year.  After several years of coming in at the back of the pack, I won in 2011.  Yeah!

Seriously, can the fun (and non-teasing warm weather) of Memorial Day weekend get here faster? Please!
