Live Blog: Thanksgiving, part 6
The second half of our Louisville field trip led us to Churchill Downs where Nana, master of the “hunch bet”, showed us how it was done. I had some beginners luck. I picked the third horse to win in the first two races because this is our third anniversary and we were married on the 23. The third horse won both races which was invigorating. It probably would have been even more invigorating if I had bet more than two dollars on either race. But a wins a win. Mom, Nana, Pam, Randy, and Pete got a special tour of the winners circle and the paddock from some Arkansas guy they ran into, so it was a win, win day for everyone.
I don’t recommend going to the grocery store at four o’clock on the day before Thanksgiving, but if you have to, I recommend going to the smaller Kroger in Campbellsville. You can get in, get out, and my student Megan works. She is excellent at what she does.
