Thanksgiving 2010

My Dad and his wife, Linda, were able to come out for Thanksgiving this year. It was a great weekend. We went to Lynn's Paradise Cafe and to the Woodford Reserve Distillery. They have delicious bourbon balls. YUM! As you can see- we had a great time.

My friend, Guen, who I have known since high school, joined us for a bit of dinner, wine and chocolate pecan pie (yum!). It was great catching up again.

Breeder's Cup 2010

We went to the Breeder's Cup this year. The big attraction was Zenyatta. Unbeated in all of her 19 career starts. AMAZING! These are the best pictures I was able to get. She lost for the first time in her career to a horse named Blame, by a nose. Sadly in the next stride she beat him.
In this picture she is the number 8 horse (third from the front). Click on the picture to see it better. She came from dead last to almost win. It was seriously the kind of race you see in the movies, except without the happy ending.
