So, what were your personal accomplishments by age 6?

I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Egads... No wonder my career never got properly off the ground, I was way behind schedule! My infatuation with airplanes only took shape back when the Boeing 707 was the new kid on the block, and airlines still flew super connies and Electras.

OTB is coming back to Chesapeake, VA - Buckets on Battlefield Blvd. We stopped in there today to confirm - should be open for business by BC. AND racing may return to Colonial Downs

Always happy to learn about other people's good health news.

Wish Texas would approve either OTB or ADW, but I'm beginning to think it's just not going to happen. Now, Colonial Downs returning, that is great. It was such a shame when it went dark.

Oh man R2R I missed this earlier... that is amazing, so glad to hear it!

It's comparatively meaningless, but I just came up with a rough formula for measuring racehorse expectation vs. performance and I am so excited right now.

Thank you all. I had a reaction to the medication recently, so my doctor told me to stop. I just had a PET scan to see if any cancer shows up. Seeing my doctor in November to discuss a new plan. I'm feeling great otherwise. Meanwhile my mother had a stroke and is rehab center. She is not adjusting well, frustrated she can't say the words she wants to say. Luckily she has no problems with moving limbs or walking. It will just take time. This is also the same facility where my father is in the nursing home wing where he is being taken care of for his dementia. The nurses love him!
