Although four months late, this was a beautiful Derby weekend in KY and temps were pretty mild compared to what they’ve been. Hubby and I spent Derby day at a small gathering of friends and family. Lots of food, several varieties of bourbon, and many bets on horses that didn’t pay off. We’re not big gamblers, but hubby and sons (not me because I’m horrible at it) usually place a few bets througout the day for fun. Before the last race, we all draw numbers corresponding to the horses, and I came in third with Mr. Big News winning me the glass and mini bottle in the pic – woo hoo! It was a fun-filled day, and one I’m glad we were able to celebrate even four months late.
My oldest son was here for the weekend, as well as some of his friends who aren’t local anymore, for an even more important event – fantasy football draft. They’ve been doing this together for years, even though one of them is now living in Australia. I have no idea what time it was in his part of the world when they began yesterday, but my son had plenty of lists and charts he’d made in preparation. I was just glad to have both sons here for lunch yesterday – it’s a rare occasion these days.
If you ever watched The Karate Kid, you’ve probably seen ads for Cobra Kai on Netflix. It’s incredibly difficult for me to find something hubby will watch, but I decided to spring this one on him – and he’s hooked. Yes, it’s cheesy and pretty laughable at times, but it’s also full of Karate Kid Easter eggs you’ll pick up on if you’re a fan of the movie. Underlying themes of how to be a better dad/person/friend are often covered up by immature high school rivalries and alpha male crap, but if you look deeply – sometimes very deeply (you may need a shovel) – you’ll discover them. The episodes are less than thirty minutes each, and there are two seasons. If you’re a child of the 80s, you might enjoy it.
