Girlfriends cousin is getting married in Camden.  I'll watch from the second pew on my phone that will be in a specially designed hymnal that has a cutout for a phone so that when it's over I just close the Hymnal and nobody thinks Anythinf about it

Since I live in Texarkana, Texas, I am prevented by Texas Law to engage in wagering from my home on horse racing.  Texas brilliance at it's peak. The lucky thing is this, Louisiana finally completed its 4-lane part of the interstate so its 75 miles all four lane driving to La Downs...Since I don't want to fight the crowds at Bossier City, I plan to drive down Friday, bet the Derby, maybe stay a couple of races and come home. The days of my hanging out all day at the track are long since over. Mark (my former golfing podsy and I) have spent enough time at the race track to get me divorced and him to the precipice of it. So, you guys have fun.

I've hosted a Derby watch party going back to Strike the Gold's win. Going to hoist a Mint Julep, sing my Old Kentucky home and eat some BBQ.

55" TV out back while taking the occasional cooling off in the pool.  Something dead will appear on the grill.

I'm hopeful that the Texas law will change by the next derby. HB-3926 is an bill that is in the works. A couple years ago I almost got into a bit of trouble after moving from Louisiana to Texas when using Twinspires. Because of that I haven't kept up with horse racing much over the last couple years.

I was at the same wedding. I had to DVR it.
