It's still all mainly about the Melo (look whose picture is prominently placed at the top of this page!), and what we're in to, up to, and trying to do, and all of the other good bits in between.

Run for the Roses

It is almost that most magic 4 minutes of sports: the Kentucky Derby. Dang, I really should have hauled my butt to Louisville this year - even the Queen's getting in on the horsey action. Oh well - it just means I get more time in July to go see E - yes, I am a coming to visit!!!

Don't worry Erica, we'll be watching the race!!! Here's my official (well, not official yet but going on record) picks, in no particular order since I generally do the weeny win/place/show bets:

1. Cowtown Cat (cause Cat is in the name)
2. Storm in May (what a cool story, kinda like a pirate horse . . .)
3. Iamwildandcrazyguy (because its post position 5, my fav number, and right now 50 to 1)
4. Sam P (because his sire is Cat Thief)
5. Scat Daddy (just cause)

So, in celebration of Southern Spice, I will be putting on my Derby hat, breaking out the Makers Mark and official julep making bits and enjoying the show! Maybe Josh and I will have to rejoin Ted's horse conglomerate.
