too pretty....

this started out to be about the lovely swim suit below,
but I drifted....

on the serious side tomorrow....

my horse, Revolutionary, came in 3rd.

big congrats to those of you who chose "Orb"  and especially to

on with the prettiness



the "drive-in movie" pencil is no longer available

all the rest, in stock

don't ask me why! this is my favorite of all your posts.....EVER!!

Maybe...because..the Kentucky Derby winner was the last horse "Schub"sp? Was ever going to train! He retires today! Also, he was from the "Phipps" family breeders.....(my husband went to school with "Denny"!)

and, I think I heard it was the first Kentucky Derby for the Phipps (and another name) stable too! After decades of breeding magnificent race horses!

I was completely thrilled that the race went so well; no horses nor jockeys were hurt!!!!



ps One of my favorite people (a client also) in the entire world was a race horse trainer! Eddie Gregson! He trained a horse who won the "Roses" (Kentucky DerbY) also!

A lovely race! I learned from my friend.....Carole......that when it is muddy....the jockeys wear googles.....lots of them.....and pull them down....when they can no longer see! Yikes! What a great race!

Every one (horse and jockey) was covered with mud! Fantastic!!!
