I really don’t know where to begin! So much fun with family and friends…it’s almost hard to explain…but let me try….
I had every intention of doing a blog each day we were at the Grand Prix in Montreal…That obviously didn’t happen and not for lack of trying, but for lack of time!
So, lets begin where we left off..
Friday started off pretty chili and we were suppose to wear our shorts with our tee shirts…Most of the Canadian’s refused, but packed the shorts in case the weather warmed through the day…all except Lea and Don.
Lea received the Casualty Hat…But let’s back up to the day…
Our favorite Busker (We call him Stan, as he can only really sing, if you call it that, one song…Stand By Me) didn’t let us down and was merrily singing and playing his guitar (which had 6 strings this year!) and entertaining all the fans eagerly heading into the F1 stands.
We arrive at the famous “fence”..it’s where we always start our day. Today is Practice for the F1. 1st practice in the morning and 2nd practice in the afternoon. ..and the sun comes out and it warms up! So, we all (except the Rowan’s) peel off our jeans and put on our uniform shorts…the only time you can drink before noon and not feel guilty is at the F1..it’s the rule!…except, well, I’d had enough of the red grapes the night before and thought I’d pass on that. Lots of fun. Our Boy, Lewis, was fastest on both practices, so the celebrations start…

Now it’s time to head off to our favorite digs…Weinsteins ! Don’t know how Rosie was able to obtain a reservation for 14 on F1 weekend, but we’re grateful she did! Food is yummy, the service is fabulous and you’re right smack in the middle of Crescent Street…
Saturday is almost as exciting as race day…Qualifying! Our fearless leader (FacePlant) decided we should get our money’s worth out of our blue wigs and wear them to the track…so glad we did, as now we just keep popping up everywhere on social media!
Where did you go Janice??? We’re missing your “I”!
Yes! We were on TV!
..and HE did it! Got pole! Yee Haw!!!!!
It’s RACE DAY! Tense, Excitement, Anticipation…all wrapped up in one.
And we’re off!
It’s cold..oh not just chilly, but downright cold and a chance of rain…
it’s time to paint our faces!
Check out “Jeffrey’s Mum”…the world WORST F1 Fan ever!. She wasn’t at all impressed with our fun attire and verbalized it in the worst of ways. She even tattle tailed on us to the stewards and as you can see, we kept our wigs. (Thank you Niki) Cannot believe there would be someone like this menopausal individual who could not see the fun and enjoyment of the day. Of course, she indicated (does calling us Assho!es count?) more than once that she couldn’t see it over our wigs…What wigs, I say?
And LEWIS HAMILTON WINS the 2016 Grand Prix!!
Newest team member, Connagh kissing the Pole Position on the track!
Lots of celebrations with a “football” game thrown in!
Yet another amazing Montreal GP weekend. Thank you Peeps!
I’ll leave you with this….
