Sunday February 22, 2015 Daytona 500 and Academy Awards

Bright and sunny this morning. Over night low was 54F and the high today was 73F. It was sunny most of the day, but clouded up later in the afternoon and got quite windy.

Got up and heated the coffee and headed out. Cathy stayed at the motor home with Joy. Stopped and picked up the mail in Bard. Stopped at O’Reilly’s on 4th and returned the alternator for the core charge.

Then went to the Arizona Marketplace. Alan told me where he got the great T-shirt. They only had 4 left, 3 small and 1 XXXL. Did get some jalapeno jam, a remote holder and sheet for grilling.

Then went to Walmart. By this time the Daytona 500 was starting, so listened to the first few laps on XM Radio before going in.

Went back to Ocotillo Flat and watched the rest of the race. Joey Logano ended up winning. Danica came in 21st. Tony Stewart crashed early on. Jeff Gordon and Jimmy Johnson led most of the race. Neither Busch brother was in the race, Curt was suspended yesterday and Kyle hurt his leg in the Xfinity race yesterday.

After the race we went and visited with Gloria and Scott up on Hurricane Ridge. We took the Senator Wash Road back to Ocotillo Flat.

We had lasagna and salds for dinner. We then watched the Academy Awards.
