Odie Mac and his Track Rats

Odie Mac and his Track Rats

by Cheryl McMullen August 10, 2012 3 Comments

Growing up we were "track rats."

We spent every weekend and summers at dirt tracks in Texas, or when times were good, paramutual tracks in Louisiana and New Mexico, watching our dad's quarter horses sprint a quarter mile for a whole 21 seconds.

My paternal grandfather, Odell was right in step and never missed a race either.  In fact, he got his nickname "Odie Mac" at some track along the way.

As I was sourcing fabric for this season I came across a lovely woolen, ombre plaid that reminded me of  "Odie Mac" and one of the coats he use to wear.  I had to do some digging, but sure enough, I uncovered a photo of him at the Columbus racetrack in a handsome, western-cut, plaid coat.  It was inevitable that I would do my own version of a woolen plaid for this season and doubtless name it "Odie Mac".

Can ya find me below?

Back in 2009 I did a post on his love of True West Magazine. Check that out here. . .
