Me? Competetive?

At the festivities after our neighborhood July 4th Parade, I was challenged to a sack race by my son, and my friend Judy kindly recorded my shame for posterity....

Notice that I am slightly larger than the competition.


Oh, yeah. Feeling confident....


I'm ahead, I'm ahead!


Teenyweenies, I leave you in my dust! HAH!


Hold on a second. I just had...to....catch....my.........breath....


Watch out, kid, I'm coming from behind. You are no match for me AND MY HAIR!



At the finish line! Yeah! The last time I looked so radiant in a Gunne Sack was at my high school prom circa 1978. (I know, it's a different spelling, but go with it, m'kay! I'm trying to be clever, here.)

Congratulations! I didn't get the joke at first because I'd never heard of Gunne Sax, not being up on the prom wear, but Wikipedia came to my rescue. I'm sure you didn't have as much fun in your first Gunne sack. Or maybe you did.
