Plus 5 and dry when driving in..

Sadly Christmas is now all over, but what a fun family day.

Todays its back to work with a very busy racing day out. Packed racecourses and great racing. Go early if you are as the traffic will not be that good when trying to get in.

We have runners at two meetings.

Thumb Stone Blues heads north to Sedgefield while at Huntingdon we run Monkhouse, Chateau Robin and Boy In A Bentley. For my thoughts on their chances please click here.

A touching story.

Alan and Sandra lived on a cove at Gull Lake, Alberta . 

It was early winter and the lower portion of the cove had frozen over. 

Alan asked Sandra if she would walk across the frozen part of the cove to the general store and get him some smokes and beer.
She asked him for some money, but he told her, "Nah, just put it on our tab. Old man Stacey won't mind."
So Sandra, being the good wife and Alan's true love, walked across the ice, got the smokes and beer at the store and then walked back home across the cove.
When she got home with the items she said, "Alan, you always tell me not to run up the tab at Stacey's store. Why didn't you just give me some money?"
Alan replied, "Well, Sandra, I didn't want to send you out there with cash when I wasn't sure how thick the ice was!"

Have a good Boxing Day..
