In other news, this Saturday is the Preakness Stakes, so I'm hoping that our Kentucky Derby-winner, Orb, will claim the second jewel of the Triple Crown. Orb's trainer is Shug McGaughey, a Lexington son who is much admired in the horse industry. Orb, bring home that trophy!
So, in a about three weeks, I turn 40. The plans I had for a fun weekend in Charleston, S.C. have been slightly altered since my cancer diagnosis. So, the lovely crowd of ladies with whom I had hoped to escape to South Carolina are coming to Louisville to help me celebrate. Can't wait!
What do I want for my birthday? Well, first and foremost, a clean bill of health. But, in case the birthday angels are listening, perhaps a winning ticket in the Powerball lottery this Saturday, too? The prize now stands at $475 million. I don't have to win the ENTIRE thing, but a portion would be nice. Believe me, if I won, not only would I take care of my family, but a huge chunk of it would go to cancer research and helping families who are battling cancer. I'm not just saying this; completely serious. And I would hope that anyone else who wins the lottery would consider the same altruism with their winnings. Don't blow it at the river boat casino, folks.
It's almost the weekend, friends. Take it easy and enjoy the time off!
