Well, with this being the first (and only) time in my life I would have gotten to see the Kentucky Derby live, I really wanted it to be an enjoyable time. It is calling for rain and thunderstorms all day on Saturday and it does not look hopeful to improve. So I can either go and stand in the infield under a parka all day and not take a single picture because I don’t want the camera to get wet… or I just put it off another year. Hey, it’s only been 15, so what does one more year matter? Right…
So then it’s a matter of do I still take a vacation as planned?
Yes, yes I do. And of course, I’ll place my wager on the Kentucky Derby at an off track betting place, lol.
New vacation plan B is to go to the Titanic Museum in Branson, Mo. Something else I’ve been wanting to do since I found out it existed about 5 years ago. I’ve had an interest in Titanic as long as I can remember- long before the James Cameron movie came out, LOL. I’ve read numerous Nat Geo mags that featured Titanic and have watched just about every Titanic special on TV in the last 20 years or so if not longer. And read a ton of books about the ship. I’m looking forward to seeing the Titanic museum and Branson looks like a fun, fun place to visit. So it should end up being a nice weekend for both of us.
I’ve come to an agreement with the owner of the Meadowbrook and I’ll be getting that soon. More to come on that, with pictures, of course.
In the mean time, it was raining today too (what a surprise) so no working horses. I’ll probably not work them tomorrow, either, which means they get the whole week off. Lucky ponies. But when I get back, Chewbacca is going to learn to be a cart horse. Oh boy. I hope we’re ready!
