A Day at the Races

As some of you know, my son Stu and I work together. But while we spend a lot of time together, we hadn’t Spent Time Together in a while. So it was his idea to spend this afternoon at the track and I gotta say it was a puuuuuhfect idea.

I’d been only once since the season opening on Thanksgiving. I wound up about breaking even — scoring big on a 15-1 shot early and then watching some other selections founder in the sloppy conditions until a couple of mixed results before we left. Then I had to go back to work and build tomorrow’s gumbo.

…but it was a delightful day. If you haven’t been out to the track, you need to go. Even if you don’t give a rat’s ass about horses or their racing (as I don’t). It’s just a fun place to be and the people-watching is wonderful.

    My former employer used to throw after Mardi Gras parties at the track for us drones. It was a good time and the food isn’t bad, either.
