Busy Birthday Weekend for Go Postal

Friday night we tilled a new garden. I planted spinach, beets and red potatoes. The squash, okra and tomatoes will go out in a few weeks. So far it looks like the rabbits and deer like beets and spinach. We sprayed the perimeter with some rotten egg/garlic spray to see if that will help.

Saturday we drove up to VIR (Virginia International Raceway) to join up with Sam and Marc, our friends from the ski club. He is an instructor and invited Go Postal out on the track during some of his free time. It is a road course and incredible how fast he accelerates and BRAKES aournd the curves. We even got to drive our own cars around the track for some parade laps. It was a lot of can see the big grin on his face.

Sunday after church his family got together for a Easter/Birthday lunch. I decided to make him a bunny cake using pound cake layers. He may have been thinking about a more adult bunny when I suggested it....but I think it was fun anyway. You need to have some fun on your big 5-0!!

It was nice to take a break from working on the barn, we will get back to that this week I guess. The scissor lift should be there today so they can stain the end gables and finally get the outside complete. This stretch of warm weather is just what we need.
