Aaaand They're Off!!

Dad received free Club House tickets to Santa Anita for today or Sunday. He passed them along to us, so Kevin and I took in the races today at the track. Suffice it to say that Lady Luck was not on our side. Well, at least not in terms of winning. However, in terms of beauty, she was on our side all the way.

Is this not the most perfect to place to take in the Sport of Kings? (Why is it the sport of Kings, anyway? What about the Queen? Don't they know ... if mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy? Hmmm ...)Though it was beautiful and the sun was out today, make no mistake, it was C.O.L.D.!! Our feet and noses nearly froze, but we still had a great time! Santa Anita Park is such a wonderful part of our local history, and we were so glad to see that, after several disastrous attempts at 'renovating' the track, they've finally come to their senses and gone back to the good ol' fashioned dirt track. The way it's supposed to be. Not that I'm opinionated or anything.
