Who is glad it's Friday Night? I know that I am. Even though it was a pretty uneventful week, I'm still exhausted.
So some interesting things happened this week.
On Sunday, a fan was killed a Pocono Raceway by a lighting strike. It had to happen around the same time that Hubby and I were high fiving that Dale Jr. was still in the points lead even after a 18 lap 'pit stop' to replace his transmission. As fans, were leaving the raceway in a severe thunderstorm, a man sitting in his car was killed. No words for how scary that is. Hubby and I go to alot of races, and last year we sat in our car of almost a whole day at Chicagoland Speedway, luckily there wasn't any lightening that day. It just made me think, how many times have we all pushed our luck during severe storms at sporting events, driving to work, for that matter running errands? Any way there is a really good article here from the Pocono Review that tells the stories of fans that raced (no pen intended) to help others, plus links to other articles on this story.
Something else happened on Sunday that was tragic. A pediatric doctor that dedicated his left to saving children's lives, died trying to save 2 children from drowning. It was big story her in Chicago, because this is where is wife and he practiced. It is very sad that he worked his whole life to save children so that they could grow with their families, yet his own children will not have the pleasure of growing with him. The world has lost a great healer. Learn more about him here.
So, now I will brighten the mood. Look at this very cool pool. Who wants to go on vacation there with me? How awesome!
