Derby Redux

Wow. What an exciting two minutes -- I was absolutely riveted! I’ve never paid much attention to horse racing, but now I think I’m hooked.

I appreciate all of your comments and messages about the Derby party. We had an amazing Southern spread – and I tried grits & breaded okra & mint juleps for the first time. Most importantly, I wore a gloriously, magnificently oversized hat! (Before the party, everyone told me that “it’s all about the hat,” and now I totally understand.) Thanks again to my Derby party hosts for a grand new experience!

And when it was all over – you guessed it – I sat back with a tall, cool glass of Chai, Baby!’s Energy Blend. Glorious mint & ginger tea over ice! I’m all about starting new traditions!

Hi there!

I came over for the MBC under 100 followers club.

I've never watched a horse race but it's on my to-do list! Sounds gripping!

Come and visit my blog when you get a chance! Looking forward to reading more!
