Derby Day

I guess if you are not from Kentucky, you might not understand, but…

The first Saturday in May is a holiday in the state. It rivals any national holiday- at least, here! I have yet to meet a Kentuckian that doesn’t celebrate the day. It is a day that people that normally don’t drink, find themselves waking up, and pestle mint for the obligatory julep… or 10… or more!

Now, I work nights, and I usually drink when people are asleep, but it is a welcome respite that many other of my fellow Kentuckians are sippin’ corn this morning.

Will a fillie do it this year… it has been along time! The 136 running of the Run for the Roses should be an exciting race.

Cheers, Tim
