Another Lesson Learned

Friends (people) aren't always what they seem.  I know that's cliche, but I learned today that it's true.  Lesson learned.

Flashback Friday

For the past week, the weatherazzi has been saying that we would get "buckets of rain" from Tropical Storm Cindy.  They were expecting 3+ inches of rain here in Louisville.  

It didn't rain nearly that much here at The Compound, and The Girls didn't seem to mind the rain at all.

This made me think back to the days before we had Supper Dopplar and GPS systems.  Back then, the weatherazzi did as good of a job as they could with the current technology they had to work with.  This was the time when people got the morning and evening newspapers, and relied on the weather forecast that was printed in the papers.  Not so much today.  I'm pretty sure that we are one of the very few people that still get a newspaper every day; that is, when the carrier decides to deliver the papers to us.  But I digress.  Now, we rely on our phone apps for up-to-the-minute weather reports.  We've come a long way, baby.

Welcome Summer; Please Be Kind

Summer officially began yesterday, and I think we had almost as many 90+ degree days in the past two months than we normally have in July.  But I digress.  I hope that is not an indication of how winter is going to be.  I know I'm jumping the gun but when you have an early, hot summer, we tend to have an early, extra cold winter.  I guess time will tell. In the meanwhile, I'm thankful for our almost-new a/c here at The Compound.

Another Spring Meet Horse Racing Update

This news is too good to have to wait till another week or so for an update.  As of the time I am writing this, I made over $100 today on the Ramsey horses I bet on.  Yes, I know that I ended that sentence in a preposition, but to bet $24 and win over $100 makes me excited.  And I still have one horse waiting to run tonight.  I could hopefully be adding more to the $100+ winnings!

Spring Meet Horse Racing Update

Well, faithful readers, we were getting down pretty low on our betting money until this Sunday.  I hit a nice Exacta for $91.40 and that put me back in the money again for more races to bet on.  

As I said before, I am still playing on "their" money; I have not deposited any of my money to bet.  I am still playing on "their" money -- meaning, money I've won from my original $4 bet a couple of months ago.  I think that's pretty darned good.

Something You Don't See Every Day

Once again, today on my way home from work driving on the Greenbelt Highway, I saw someone's dark red wig on the side of the road.  It was either a wig or a weave - I couldn't differentiate.  All I could think of is "Who stole my weave?"

Happy Fathers Day

TWIT and I would like to wish all of the fathers out there a very happy Fathers Day.  And I would like to especially with a very happy Fathers Day to my Old Man.  I've done my best to spoil him in the past two weeks by showering him with gifts and love.  But then again, I shower him with love every day.
