I'm devastated that I'll Have Another is not running in the Belmont but very proud of his connections and their decision to retire him. They might as well get him into the breeding shed to get him started on his new career since these tendon injuries can take so long to heal and you never know if they're then prone to injuring it again. No Triple Crown this year!
Well, I neveer got my dessert last night. The waiter asked of we wanted to start with appetizers and we didn't think to say no and keep our 3rd course open for dessert. Failed to realize that there were 4 courses to choose our 3 from. I would gladly have forgone the appetizer, as it was really big. Or one of us could have had it and shared it and we still could have had 2 desserts to share.
Oh, well. Had a really nice one today with lunch today. It was rich but not very big, which would not have been the case last night. Had a nice time with my friends, but it took forever to get from Lorene's place to the restaurant. Why? Because I listened to my GPS! It took me a way with lots of traffic even though most of it was kinda highway. The kind that still has lots of lights. Then past the hospital and everything. Once we got there, I couldn't find a parking spot close enough for Lorene to walk from, so I had to park, run in and tell Carolyn we were there, drive up to the front and let her help Lorene in while I went back to scrounge a parking place again. But it was a really nice lunch, though in hindsight I should have done the country salad with shrimp or chicken added instead of the BLT stromboli.
Apparently that and the inability to resist some really good bread led me to the all-too-familiar carb coma, because I fell asleep probably by 4 and didn't wake up till almost 8! So now I have a lot of catching up to do! Have a great weekend, everyone!
