oh, i miss everybody…it’s been hard to get back into Reality even though there’s plenty to be done…overThinking are me today…

just how the hell hot did it get here last week??  i have some seriously burned-up plants, unresponsive to my ministrations…whaa??  i’m not sure i could have stopped this even if i’d stayed home and loped around the house with a water-hose all day long…

it’s difficult to articulate how much i miss the jose’s without making it sound like i wish they lived closer…their life in nyc is a fine one and there would be nothing like it anyplace else, but sometimes i just wish i could get to them quicker…especially after 2 weeks with non-stop emma&olivia…

when we’re at disney, we are transformed.  i do Not think this has anything to do with God, but it does have a lot to do with Love…which may be the same thing.

i’m back at the track, setting up my office and gearing up for opening day 7/4.  i’m going to share the job this year and will hopefully get together soon with the lady who’ll be my partner.   it’s awfully hot still, so i hope they’re taking care of the horses.  weiner dog race try-outs are july 14-15;  the championships are july 21.  ostrich races are 7/28.    every sunday is dollar day;  ky lottery day is august 8;  gardenia stakes are 8/11;  ladies day is 8/25.  the final day of racing is labor day, 9/3.   (write this shit down…or just call me—i’d love to see you there)

i’m going to dye my hair red-ish…go ahead and try to talk me out of it, but you’ve only got till tomorrow morning.  i am appalled at how my hair looks in the wdw pictures…must be fixed.

i want to paint and carpet my entire downstairs before i get my piano…don’t talk to me about wood floors, you probably have a cleaning lady.

after asking 3-6 times, i still don’t know when melissa & girls are arriving.  i know it’s this week sometime…  when they get here we’ll have to get some more ice cream…and maybe a watermelon.
