Good luck on the half-marathon...

My family is getting together in Louisville at my sister's house for a cookout. Her son who is in med school in Ohio will be coming in and wanted everyone to get together. His dad is also a doctor and usually works the Derby, but he's going to work for The Oaks but will be home Derby Day. We'll watch it on tv...

It's become a tradition to have a cookout with my neighbors/dearest friends and watch the derby on TV.
We always draw derby horses from a pot (kids included) and root for our horses.

We always have so much fun!

Best wishes on your Derby half marathon, MRSRHAWKINS


I will watch the Derby on TV. Although, I always hold my breath hoping no horses or jockeys are injured or worse.

I slept during Thunder-no plans for Derby, depends on how my knees feel.

I live in Louisville too, and was also very much appreciative of the lovely weather today!! No plans for Thunder or Derby. I went to Thunder once, the second year I lived here and I can't deal with the crowds either.

I live in Louisville and it is a BEE-U-TI-FUL day for thunder and a GREAT way to kick off the Derby festivities.

I won't be going today, but will take advantage of this AWESOME weather and do some yard work and maybe the soil in the garden will be ready to turn.
