Yeah the Derby. That damn derby. I’ve been payin’ for years and I haven’t seen a nickel. And isn’t always interesting how when you go to OTB (Off Track Betting) and pick up tickets for your sons and daughters you never seem to get that money back….they’re always losing tickets too!
Gonna go for the superfecta only next year. I think it paid out 19,000 on a dollar bet. I’m told if you bet on Justify you owed the house $1.50 on a $1 bet.
We did have the mandatory Derby get together. That Mother-in-Law of mine. Jeez. You wanna hear someone scream at a horse and his rider. I think it was the first time in the history of the Kentucky Derby that a jockey turned completely around in the middle of a race looking for who the hell was screaming at him. And we were in New York mind you. My ears are still ringing.
Bolt D’Oro had to go to the ear doctor after the race. The poor thing.
The construction blog is toast this week. I worked all weekend to tired to continue the blog. I’ll give you the pictures. It’s the best I could do. My apologies.
Did a bunch of other stuff as well. Interior lighting, door trim, window shelf, yada,yada,yada. Travis helped put all the electrical outlet covers on and helped clean the outside up. Huge help there. Thanks Trav.
See you all next week!
