Movies and Races

It was Kentucky Derby weekend. I love horse racing and I LOVE that first Saturday in March when it is a huge spectacle of the race, the fashion, and rich tradition. I picked four horses yesterday and it was a good thing that I didn't bet as none of them came in. Even the favorite of the race, Friesan Fire, came in second to last. Instead it was a long shot, Mine that Bird, that was like a rocket coming up the rail. Such an intense race!!!

And then we have the hats!!! Going to the Kentucky Derby and wearing a large hat is on my list of things to do before I die.

This morning I took a journey over to the local theater to catch a movie. This week I chose "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past" starring the little hottie Matthew McConaughey.

Cute movie...I don't know if I would pay full price to see the movie, but it was definitely a matinee movie and one that I will own on DVD when it comes out. The storyline was kind of cheesy, but it was Matthew McConaughey and he is charming.
