Just a head's up so you won't blame me if you miss the Derby today! Six o'clock p.m. EST for the actual race but I'm sure there will be a good hour or more of lead up. All those stories, at least two guaranteed to get you teary eyed.
As per tradition, I'll be watching the Derby with Linda again this year. She has some friends down so we could be watching it at her house instead of Dinghy Dock. If so, we'll be back there next year!
But first, I'm heading down to the betting place to put a few bucks on my pick for the winner. And no I'm not telling but I'll give you a hint...he's not a real favored horse according to the betting lists. That never stopped me before!
Happy Derby Day! And if you must drink mint julep's, I've got some fresh mint in the garden you're welcome to use.
