Win, Place and Show

Let's start out this fourth and final shower with the guest of honor, the bride,

Maggie. Add to that some delightful flowers,

and a pristine racetrack, along with colorful and fun
surroundings and a good time can be had. We had a few onlookers that we tried to ignore (except when we
needed some dough) including Uncle Mike, Uncle Johnny, Uncle Bill, G, Evan and Peter.
Here we all are. It was a very hot day and threatened rain but as usual, we were very lucky and it sprinkled for about two minutes and that was it.
The eleven races were all different lengths and some were on the hard track and some
were on the grass. We all tried our hand at betting and I personally came out about even, betting four races and winning something in two. It was my first time there and I thought it was tons of fun. I will definitely go back in the future.
