Derby in September
It's very strange watching the Kentucky Derby in the fall, instead of spring.
It's even more odd, seeing jockeys in masks. It's good. They are following rules, I'm sure. But they're also setting a good example.
I miss seeing faces, though.
There was also no rain and no mud. And there were no big crowds and no big hats. Well maybe a few. But it felt very different.
The jockeys started the race with masks on. I was surprised. Most athletes are un-masked, in other sports.
I cheered for "South Bend", since I was born in South Bend, Indiana.
"Authetnic" won the race. I briefly got to see the face of Jockey John Velazquez! I'm glad we got to see his smile.
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 13, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me. I ranted for a year, until I got my vaccine in March 2021.
Coronary Artery Disease was the reason I restarted this blog on September 26, 2021. This time it was Don who was dealing with a worry that started with the letter "C".
Coronavirus and Cancer, Coronary Artery Disease! All are evil, but none can totally get me down... if I vent! I usually end up feeling a little more positive at the end of each post!
