This morning I watched one of my FAVORITE movies (yeah, I have a lot of them) but with the Kentucky Derby just on the horizon this one was appropriate. I have yet to watch it that I don't have tears streaming down my face.
Secretariat was a Virginia horse...a long shot that only a handful of people had faith in but accomplished a feat that NO HORSE has been able to do in 34 years! Will we have a Triple Crown Winner this year?
Back in 2008 Hubby and I visited the Kentucky Horse Park...yeah, I had to see this statue!
Check out this video and relive this horse's amazing race.
This year I'm giving serious thought to having a Kentucky Derby Party...with hats and all...to watch the Derby, just seems like a lot of fun. Besides it's Son #2's birthday--his last one in the 20's! Has anyone else ever attended or thrown a Derby party? Tips and pointers are welcome!!
So....did anyone else play the lottery Friday? I've NEVER bought one...till Friday. As difficult has times have been lately I figured what the heck...I can let go of $1 for a VERY slim chance. There were 5 winning tickets matching all 6 numbers--and 1 ticket that matched 5 numbers to the tune of $250,000. It was sold right here in the valley....guess who bought that ticket!?
I NEVER win anything so I'm sure you really believed that one!
I'll have some FO's to post up in a few days...made bunnies & sheep for the kids in the family waiting for them to dry so I can stuff them.
Also working on some spinning....
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!
