|And to that beloved, inspiring and much-missed horse lover born in 1921, we thought of you AND BEHAVED OURSELVES!|
Twasn't exactly sell-out, but it turned out well.
We all agreed that NBC did a great job of keeping the compelling story lines a coming, while we did a pretty fair job of munching on meatballs, oreos, veggies, M and M's , etc.
No full-blown, liquor-loaded juleps at this party, but we sampled the butter mints, and that was good enough.
Barbara's colorful theme-oriented tenny runners won the foot-gear prize, while we agreed on a photo finish for the hat competition.
In fact, that's precisely what we did to finish off the afternoon----show off our head gear for the camera with the beautious, bloomin' plum tree and the barnyard fence serving as backdrops.
Twas kind of a rainy, cool day, so our funky, informal party of jeans and fancy hats made for a festive, fun and laid-back afternoon of enjoying the grit, sweat, tears and dreams that lead up to the Best Two minutes in Sports.
This year, it was pretty easy to spot the winner---the only horse not covered in mud.
Good luck, Always Dreaming. Maybe that Triple Crown awaits you.
Happy Sunday to all.
