It was plus 5 and dry first thing this morning
Thursday is our easy day.. But not today as we are taking John and Penny Perriss's horses home.
Bobhopeornohope, Getaweapon, Hollymount Holly, Lady of the Night, Lots of Luck, Rocky's Treasure, Rosmuc Relay and Wandrin Star are off on their summer holidays.
If you enjoy reading racing books.. This is by far the best and the most interesting one.. The Druids Lodge Confederacy by Paul Mathieu .
Sir Mark Prescott says. It is a fascinating story..
I mowed the lawn today, and after doing so I sat down and had a cold beer.
The day was really quite beautiful and the drink facilitated some deep thinking.
My wife Clare walked by and asked me what I was doing, and I said 'nothing'.
The reason I said 'nothing' instead of saying 'just thinking' is because she then would have asked 'about what?'.
At that point I would have had to explain that men are deep thinkers about various topics, which would lead to other questions.
Finally I pondered an age old question:
Is giving birth more painful than getting kicked in the nuts?
Women always maintain that giving birth is way more painful than a guy getting kicked in the nuts, but how could they "know"?
Well, after another beer, and some more heavy deductive thinking, I have come up with an answer to that question.
Getting kicked in the nuts is more painful than having a baby, and even though I obviously couldn't really "know", here is the reason for my conclusion.
A year or so after giving birth, a woman will often say, "It might be nice to have another child."
On the other hand, you never hear a guy say, "You know, I think I would like another kick in the nuts."
I rest my case.
Time for another beer, and then maybe a nap in that hammock.
Happy birthday to Vinndication..
To finish.. Jockey David Bass is my guest blogger tomorrow.. I can hardly wait...
