slow and steady wins the race...

Turtle Pictures, Images and PhotosRumor has it that we might close our inventory today. This is the longest amount of time that I can ever remember "working" one. But we are special. And special people get special treatment. I know Jan and I both will be ready to see the last of this thing. (perhaps a picture of a monkey on my back would be more appropriate!)


In other random bits of my life, it appears that spring is here to stay. The Bradford pear trees that were not lost in the ice storm are beginning to bloom, along with what might be cherry trees. (I am not very good at determining what plant is what. I mostly identify them by "it's green with pink blooms" or some such technical term as that.) We also have daffodils blooming and 30 out of 50 new tulips coming up. I'm hoping to take some pictures this weekend.


The city is beginning to spruce up for the Derby as well. May will be here before we know it. Rumor has it that they want to have all the ice storm debris up by then. (I'm thinking that it's a great idea since it will have been three plus months! It looks like Louisville has been invaded by herds of beavers. Flocks of beavers? How do beavers travel? Packs? Gaggles?)


Speaking of animals, Bakari is finally up and running around. Apparently he just needed a bit of equine surgery. Even though he's not an equine.

And, just in case you might be fascinated by all things Derby, my nephew-in-law is working on a horse for Louisville's Gallopalooza. You can check out what he's doing here.

Other than that, I hope everyone has a wonderful "springy" weekend!

I am surprised to see how spring comes so quickly to you. Thanks for pointing to the giraffe story and the cool site, Gallopalooza! I have a neighbor that has a Derby party (yes, in Texas) every year and for once, I will have some insight into the event! Glad you're wrapping up inventory--it was a long one. Happy first day of Spring! Love, A

PS I just visited the site and your nephew is building one of the horses? I guess it's like the Rose Bowl parade there with all the events surrounding the Derby.I loved your descriptions last year of the two weeks leading up to the fastest two minutes of racing.

They have artists bid on the opportunity to design the different horses and Josh is painting one of them. I'm not sure what the final design will look like but I am looking forward to seeing it. They will put them on display around the city starting April 19th. I'm ready to do on-the-spot reporting for the derby festival again this year.

Time flies... It seems like yesterday when you taught me SO much! I'm wishing it felt like Spring up here. Our high is 47 degrees today. I need to live somewhere in the South!
Hope you are having a good day. How are the wedding plans coming? How is life treating you?
Love,
Angie xoxo
