Hey hey HEY!  Sorry I’ve been hiding for a while but I’M BACK!

I hope that everyone is having a good new year so far (I know, it’s May already!).  I rang in the new year snoring in my bed with dreams of what 2018 will have in store for me.  So far, so good!

Ron and I went to our favorite horse track on Martin Luther King weekend and had an awesome time!  We arrived on Saturday morning and went straight to the track, grabbed a beer and got to betting!  We had some wins here and there and then this happened….

…The same horse that I won on last year on New Year’s Eve WAS AT THE TRACK AGAIN THIS TIME! Yes, Ultra Brat was running again!  The only difference was that last year I bet on her at the huge price of 35-1 and won $188.50, this time, she was 6-1 (well, actually 5-1 at the gate) and I won $36.   I can’t complain that’s for sure and I was so excited to see the horse again!

We had a fun day of cool weather, picked up Steak and Shake (seems to have become a tradition on our first night, not sure why) and went back to the hotel.  We usually stay at the Hampton Inn in Hallandale/Aventura 2 nights but our friends Jim, Karen and Jimmy were kind enough to invite us to their house to stay on Sunday night AND they were going to be meet us at the track the next day!  We were so excited as we hadn’t seen them since Amy and John’s wedding last March.

On Sunday, Ron and I arrived at the track early and got a good seat right at the finish line.  When Jim, Karen and Jimmy arrived, we started eating, drinking, laughing and betting!  We didn’t hit too big but we had a great time enjoying each other’s company and fresh air! When the racing day was over, we stopped to have dinner and then went back to their house and enjoyed the night laughing and drinking 🙂

The next morning we got up early and headed back home.

Looking forward to going back soon!

Till next time…
