Kentucky Derby

Well, the Run for the Roses was today and Giacomo won the race. I was rooting for Spanish Chestnut who lead for part of the race. The favorite was Bellamy Road owned by George Steinbrenner. The winner gets over 1 million dollars.

I'd probably replace the rust bucket I'm driving with a newer model or go on one h*ll of a vacation! How about you?

I am just getting my money pit paid off in June. So, it is good for a few more years. So, I think I will go on vacation instead. I have always wanted to rent a RV and take a road trip with a bunch of friends to Yellowstone.

Finding the photo album at my folk's house will be a bit of a challenge, there's a ton of them! I'll track it down, it's been so long I've almost forgotten what all the pictures look like!

Well, 1988 was a long time ago. Can you believe that it has been that long?

It HAS been a long time! That's a trip I'd love to repeat, without the fire, of course. I'd bought a denim jacket with a leather collar (yeah, it was the 80's remember? ) at the gift shop near Old Faithful and after we got home a couple weeks later I remember watching the news and seeing the whole log structure engulfed in flames. It was kinda sad, actually.
