I just watched on YouTube, a rerun of the greatest horse race in all history. I am talking about the Belmont in which Secretariat won the Triple Crown!
I saw it on TV when it happened, and I can tell you there was great happiness, celebration, and drinking in all the country after that race. It was fun to be there, and I relived it again today, making me forget for a few minutes the awful state the country is in right now.
The sun can't make up its mind whether or not to come out today - and I can't decide if I should go outside and try to pull some more weeds from the garden. All the rain we've had this year has made for an abundant crop!
I have been taking Rocky for a walk twice a day which really helps him get rid of some energy. I read this morning that everyone should stay indoors as the virus can remain in the air for something like 3 hours. That sort of gives me pause - I thought because I walked when there was nobody else around, that we would be safe. Now I don't know.
I made up my mind when this whole thing started that I was going to survive it - mostly by quarantining myself and being very careful. So now do I need to worry because I have stepped outside the boundaries of my dwelling to walk the dog? I almost give up on everything and wonder if we are all doomed, except I'm NOT going to give that Lt. Governor in the state of Texas the satisfaction of watching me die for the sake of the economy! I have never, ever heard anything so outrageous, and I'm calling on all my readers who are "of a certain age" to join me in surviving, just to piss that guy off!
Maybe I should just go watch the Belmont Race of 1973 rerun again, and hope I forget about all the total jerks in this country.
