oh and don’t forget the preakness!! could be a triple crown year. i feel i should explain my horse racing fascination. i have always loved horses, every christmas list that i would put together from the age i could speak until i was 16 was a list that had a horse and all the crap that accompanys them. (thank you daddy for finally caving!) add to my love of horses my competitive side and whala! horse racing! my lifelong dream was to become a large animal vet, work at churchill downs, then retire early and race/train/raise my own racehorses. i even had names picked out and was the only 12 year i knew who had a subscription to Thoroughbred Times. my favorite questions while playing trivial pursuit and other various trivia games in college included horse racing facts and listing the winners of the triple crown. no one liked when i asked the questions-mostly because it usually involved drinking if you got the answer wrong. so after the very devastating derby, big brown has won the preakness and is one race away from history, and not to completely give my age away, i was born the year of the last triple crown winner and have been patiently waiting to witness another.
so enough about that, i do not want to jinx anything, the rest of the weekend was a little league game, tough loss but the other guy who coaches the team who shall not be named wanted to protest the game, i think they should have let him, its coaches like that that make the whole experience not fun for kids, just once i would love to see nicks team beat that guy! the kid was totally out, the rules say they HAVE to slide at home if there is any type of play! the kid didnt even attempt to slide, very fishy!
after that we went to mystic to watch them re-launch a boat. i just thought it was cool because i saw them take the same boat out! saw my friend mike and let me just say he looks so GREAT! i had to do a double take to make sure it was him! way to go MOF!
on sunday, kevin and i took a drive up to cornwall and i got to go over the covered bridge. it was so cool and a gorgeous ride, and its little things like that, that just proves kevin loves me so much! he knew i would like it and was happy to show it too.
its one of the oldest, one lane and all! very very cool!
