Simpatico: Waiting for the Run for the Roses

Simpatico

Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!

Waiting for the Run for the Roses

It might be "May the 4th Be with You" day for the rest of the world, but here in Kentucky the first Saturday in May is very important... it's Run for the Roses aka Derby Day.  One time a year the world eyeballs Kentucky for the best two minutes in sports.

So today, if you watch the Derby, think of us...  we will be 60 miles away, eating burgers, and listening to the sounds of three dachshunds barking their instructions to the houses on how to run the fastest.

We hope you had a great Derby Day. We are gearing up for our flat season too. Giddy up ponies. Have a serene Sunday.
Best wishes Molly

I barked at each and every one of those dang horses too! I'm a little "horse" in the throat this morning ~ ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!!

Mommy loves to look at all the pretty (and some butt ugly) hat's.

Hugs,
