FAntastic. Did you put your money down on a horse today? I love this number but my favorite in the same movie is "Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat."

No money down, just enjoying the race. I'm torn between wanting the filly to show up all those boys and loving the enormous heart of Mine That Bird. Maybe a photo-finish, dead heat?

Well I am happy when every day is Tuesday.

I have them in this order: Paul Revere, Valentine, Epitaph.
But no way can Rachel Alexander win today. (I believe she is not running.)
What time does the race start?

I didn't realize she'd been pulled. Oh well - now I can root for Mine That Bird with a clear conscience.

I think the race starts around 5:30pm. Check your local listings!

Oh my God, scrolling down, of COURSE this clip was posted by you! Beautiful. Sublime.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
