As mentioned we went to The Races on Sunday to celebrate The Scot's birthday. It was just a small country gathering, and they had the horse racing, harness racing and the greyhounds. Not all racing at the same time lol. Well I must tell you this. It was about the 2nd Greyhound Race and the Scot and I each chose a dog who we thought would win (no bets were places). All started well and my dog was running last trying to catch the others. When suddenly in the home straight, he just stopped. Turned around and starting running back to the Start Post. His trainer was shouting at him, probably something like ....wrong way turn round you mutt.... when the dog stopped again then turned and ran off the track over the grass and into the carpark with about a dozen people after him. It was so funny it was like he suddenly thought... well I'm not going to win this so lets save face and go back to the start. Glad I hadn't put all my savings on him. Made me think of my daughter, she hopes to have a winning horse, but the last one had sore feet, and the last I heard she was bathing them each night for him. ummmm I don't think I am going to be a Rich Daughter's Mum.
Better stick to sewing.
Yesterday I received the first Towel in Betsy's Towel Swap
Thanks Krista this is a really happy Easter Towel to display. My month is January 2011 it seems a long time away but I must start planning what to do as I know the time is going to fly.
