I’ve been away part of the week. I went to a work-related conference in Philadelphia. I traveled with a friend who does the same kind of work in another community hospital not far from us. We had a grand time. Last evening as we were relaying much of our silly stories to K on the ride home from the airport, we laughed so hard that I’m sure he could barely understand what we were saying. Fun times! Gotta love it!
So tomorrow is K’s birthday. My sweetie will be 38 (I think). We’ve already gone “out” to celebrate, but I also got him a Nascar t-shirt. (Dale Jr.) It doesn’t matter that it’s not his FAVORITE driver’s t-shirt (Mark Martin #5). ANYTHING Nascar is exciting for him. No doubt he will get it autographed this summer. My family is having a little picnic dinner in his honor later this afternoon. More good times are on the horizon.
Today the Kentucky Derby runs. I’ve never been into horse racing at all, but there is just something about a Kentucky tradition that resonates within. I have precious memories of my old Kentucky home and the purposes for which I was there. Part of me actually wants to watch the race… don a silly glamour hat… and toast with a mint-julip. The realist in me says… what?
Going to take a little nap now. Chicken is marinating and I have a few more items to pick up at the store. It’s a beautiful day here in Western PA. I plan to enjoy it and the company!
