May 5, 2018
It’s such a busy day today!
It’s Cinco de Mayo. Just like everyone’s Irish on St. Patrick’s day, don’t you just have to have a margarita (or three) on May 5th?
Only this year, you have to choose between a margarita and a mint julep, because it’s Derby Day. It’s the 144th Run for the Roses at the Kentucky Derby.
I must confess a little fondness for the races. Mr. R and I have been to Gulfstream Park a couple of times, and it’s lots of fun. I have a scientific method for picking winners–I pick the names that jump out at me. It’s 2:26pm as I’m writing this, and I’m all in with #10, My Boy Jack. He’s currently 18:1, but I don’t pay attention to odds. I’m the proud mom of a 7-year-old German shepherd named…Jack. It’s kismet.
But tonight, I will be curled up on the couch with popcorn and a glass of wine to watch the 2018 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on HBO. This year’s honorees are Bon Jovi, The Cars, Dire Straits, The Moody Blues, Nina Simone and Sister Rosetta Tharpe. I can’t wait to see the show, and I’m bringing a little preview for tonight’s serenade. Dire Straights has a lot of cool songs, but I’m choosing Walk of Life.
Here’s wishing you felicitaciones, may your horse come in first, and I hope they play your favorite song. Be sure to hug those you love.
Happy Saturday night!
