Updates from Derby Central

This just in from Louisville.

It's spring here. Tulip, dogwood, and pear trees are blooming, jonquils (daffodils for you Yankees) are up all over the place, and my cats are lying in the sun on the big screened porch off the back of the house. You can hear birds chirping, the neighbor's dog's ID tags chattering as he patrols the fenceline, and the hum of lawnmowers - that's right! It's beginning of another season of whose lawn is greenest!

So that means there are only 21 days until we take Louisville by storm for Derby 2008!

hey! That is going to be awesome! I would love to go to derby! One of my friends in Durango is from Louisville so we have a derby party every year (satellite derby). It is great. I cant wait to make my hat this year...its always something i look forward to. I realize you have to have a fancier hat for the race....but any way to get my glue gun game!
Cant wait to hear commentary, see pics etc from you!

I totally had a Derby party last year, too. We all wore hats, and I made fried chicken and mint juleps. I also ordered offical suvenior glasses for the group (there were just a few of us). I love matter where you celebrate from! Have fun and you'll have to post pics of this year's hat!
