This is only some of the members of my RHS group. That is me in the red dress on the end. Then Diana, Susan & Cathy in front, behind Diana in back is Marcia (our queen) Corrine, & Martha. Most of the gals hadn't seen me in about a year or so. They couldn't hardly believe their eyes when they saw me.
I had a great time at the races too. My first bet was free because you get a freebie when you purchase the package for the buffet lunch at the race and entrance to the fairgrounds. I placed my first bet on the 5th race and won $113. Our friend who owns race horse's always tells us to bet to win and bet what you can afford to lose. Most of the time your gonna lose but if your horse comes in you'll do good. He say's never bet on "place" or "show" because they are sucker bets. I always $5. I missed one race and was so mad because I didn't get a chance to do my bet because our group at to go down to the winner's circle for a picture.
Of course the horse I was gonna bet on won big and I would have won at around $146. . I still came home $70 ahead for the whole day.
I ate pretty good, I only had the veggies, salad no dressing, 1 sm. wheat roll and 1 sm. chicken breast. I did have 1 pc. each of carrot & cheese cake, but they are very small.
I also did 2 miles on a LS dvd in the morning b/4 I left and we walked around the fair grounds afterward bwt. 3-4 hours.
Today was busy too. My husband got home from work around 11:30am and he had about 6 Corvette buddies over and I order pizza and canoli's. Yum but they are small and I only had one. I also got up early this morning and walked 3 miles with the Phredster. I wash the corvette this evening so got some good exercise.
We are up early tomorrow for a small corvette rally up to Big Bear/Lake Arrowhead area of the San Bernardino Mts. here in S.CA. Won't be back on site until Sunday evening or Monday.
Hope you all have a fun weekend too! Peace out everyone!
