Birthday Road Trip Success!
On a side note, upon arriving in Cincinnati on Saturday (the hotel was actually across the Ohio River in Kentucky), there was the realization that this weekend was Kentucky Derby weekend. I can’t believe I didn’t realize this sooner. Churchill Downs was a mere 1.5 hours away. Post time was a mere 2.5 hours away. Between a quick internet search for tickets and seeing the aerial coverage on TV, it was clear that even if I got to Louisville in 1.5 hours the likelihood of getting anywhere near the track by post time was slim to none. So close, and yet so far! I still managed to place a wager on the race – which was more than a little unsuccessful. I think I’m still waiting for my horse to cross the finish line! sigh. If it wasn’t for bad luck I’d have no luck at all!
So, I guess this brings an official close to my 3rd Annual Birthday Road Trip. The tradition continues!
