“Tails” from Derby

Category: Frank T. Dawg, Frank’s Friends

DSC01473_1024x576 Samm and her new husband Marc caught the dreaded Derby crud when we got back to Colorado and I had to spend a week nursing them both back to health. DSC01423_1024x576 It was my first time to Derby and I have to admit, it was quite an experience. I watched Samm do some interviews for Accu-Stats.

I hung out with some of her famous friends.

DSC01439_1024x576 So, I decided to play some backgammon with Jay Helfert instead. DSC01467_1024x576I did okay. DSC01610_1024x576 So I celebrated a little... DSC01450_1024x576That wasn't the only wagon I fell off. I also ate a ton of junk while I was there. DSC01464_1024x576Okay, I guess I needed to recover too. Samm has a busy calendar for March but I get to tag along with her so I'm happy. I do wish I could find a better way to travel though. I never can get comfortable in those seats.
