Photos! We must see your new ginger boy. :D
Congratulations on your new family member, but expect to get a lot of exercise. I remember how lively/bound across the room/leap on furniture/climb walls three-month-old kittens can be. I don't think I could keep up with one these days. :lol:
I hope he has someone to play with, like a dog or another cat. I've always tried to adopt two cats together: I've found that two cats keeping each other company get into less trouble than one who is left to amuse him/herself. :P

There's nothing I love more than a full day of gorgeous weather at Suffolk... and they've added two more racing dates this year so I get to do it again in a month!

Just received results from my doctor on my response to my stem cell transplant I had in June and I am now in almost complete remission. This nightmare started almost
a year ago and have gone through neck fusion surgery, months of chemo, stem cell harvesting, transplant and about $1 million in medical expenses. Thank
god for insurance! I am taking one pill a day and will be monitored every 3 months for a year now. Life is good and I am enjoying every day I have!

Woohoo! Congrats!

I FINALLY close on my new house in 5 days. I've been living with my in-laws and I'm so ready to be done with that.

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

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!
