The week that was...
"A Run for Your Money"
Keeneland Racetrack - Lexington, Kentucky
September 30 - October 7, 2013
Project 52 (41/52)
It was a weekend of bourbon and horse racing. Which means I was in Kentucky. Which means I had to try to acquire a taste for bourbon as I am a "wine-totaler" and don't particularly care for the taste of hard alcohol (the verdict? apparently I need more practice). Which means I found I kinda love the whole horse race track vibe and experience. Which means...I better buy an "over the top" hat for next year when I come back! Not to mention bring more money AND revise my handicapping technique from "I kinda like THAT horse's name". I'm still perplexed that "Polish Cowboy" didn't win big for moi!
What I Would be if God Hadn't Played a Practical Joke on Me and Made me German
1. Italian (which is NOT German)
2. Naturally thin (which is NOT German)
3. Laid Back (which is NOT German)
After this weekend, I'm going to revise my list and insert "Southern" into the #2 slot for a new tri-fecta (and I don't mean 'South Philly'). I can bump that "laid back" right off the list as it goes hand-in-hand with the whole "Southern" thang ya'll. To think, when I first moved to Philly my elementary school put me into "speech classes" to get rid of the trace southern accent I had from living in Maryland...because you'se guys all know how awsome-er a Philly accent is, YO! Apparently there IS a different way to pronounce the words: merry, marry, and Mary. Altho, I have yet to grasp that concept...so maybe I AM a southerner at heart afterall. Now...if only I could stomach that dang bourbon and get my eyes to stop watering!
Here's where I'm linking up today ..."The Party's On"
Please join me on Sundays for Song-ography.
This week's song title is Bruce Hornsby's "Look Out Any Window"
