*dusting off my black cowboy hat with the silver buckle*
I like Orb, Palace Malice and Frac Daddy...

You're going for Charming Kitten, I presume?

There's no such thing as a 'Charming Kitten'...I thought you'd go with 'Fear The Kitten'.

Fear the Charming Kitten because it will grow up to be an evil, grumpy cat!

Time for the annual party on the neighbor's back porch (where he has a nice, large TV) to enjoy the Derby and Mint Juleps!

I'll have to check the odds as it gets closer to post time...see if there are any scratches.

Son-of-a-gun, my wife and I both picked Orb and he won. We never have picked the winning horse together! Too bad we weren't there to place a bet!

I know! And if I could find one that I don't owe money to, I'd place a bet!

I looked in the classified, at Monster, even on the bulletin board at the soup kitchen--no 'help wanted' for bookies!

Dang computers! They even put the Bookies out of business!!!
Alain, would you like to be Basherville's official bookie?

Yes! I've always wanted to help the less fortunate achieve their dreams! And if that isn't possible, I may as well take their money and go after MY dreams!

Horsey time! I need to get to the liquor store to get some fine whiskey for mint juleps. Wild Turkey 101 should do the trick. Then it's time to pick some winners. Or not. That's the point of the whiskey...

My wife and I both chose Pharoah to win. First time we've both picked a winner! That was a fun race. I know the reason I won is because I didn't bet on it. If I had, I would have jinxed the whole thing!

Well, yes, you are absolutely right. I lucked out when I said, "I do!" Of course, it would have been tough to change my mind since we were 13 miles away from any land at the time. I'm still not quite sure where we were married, but I do know the Bahamas were the closest country. Officially, though, it was Bermuda that married us.
