Pink Chevrolets and Labor Day Thoughts

Posted 9/1/2014

Posted in

  Happy Labor Day. Merry Labor Day. Enjoy Labor Day. What is the proper language? I have no idea, but I surely hope that you all have had as lovely a day as I have had. We are at our tiny cottage in Maine and awakened to clouds and mist over the water right outside our window--also the unusual joy of spotting our neighbor heron couple. We usually see just one of them, but this morning they were out together.

  The clouds and mists, the remnants of heavy overnight rain, slowly vanished, and by noon, the sun was shining, and it has felt like a summer day. We  spent 3-4 hours hiking up and down a mountain, basking in the beauty and the quiet and the sense of being small in a very large world. Then  home to catch the tide and two hours in kayaks, spotting an eagle and loons and even a few seals.

  After an outdoor shower (I never use the indoor ones here, the out door shower may be my most favorite thing about our spot) and clean clothes and pouring a gin and tonic, I am feeling worked out and grateful and far from hospitals and cancer and the usual daily businesss of my life. I am sure that I would appreciate all of this anyway, but ater two breast cancers and losing a breast and  being bald twice and too often fearing for my life, I really appreciate it.

  And to share something not serious and amusing with you: We are approaching PInk October, so hold on. And what is it about NASCAR and pink cars?

Pink Chevrolet SS To Pace Next Three NASCAR Sprint Cup Rounds

Chevrolet has announced it will once again support the American Cancer Society’s “Making Strides
Against Breast Cancer” campaign by bringing a special pink Chevrolet SS pace car to the upcoming
NASCAR Sprint Cup races at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Talladega Superspeedway and Martinsville
The pink SS pace cars will serve as the regular pace cars at all three of the events. For every lap the pink
cars complete, Chevrolet will donate $250 to the American Cancer Society. Over the past three years,
similar Chevrolet-sponsored on-track campaigns have raised more than $80,000 for the cause. Chevrolet
in total has also contributed or help raise $3 million to the MSABC program.
