Today is a day to celebrate our beautiful state. Oh, how I wish we were there. To smell the bright green grass and not just see it in HD. To watch the Derby with other people who understand the sense of history, the pageantry and sweet Southerness of it all. Also, it would just be really great to have an excuse to wear a giant hat.
Instead, we’ll watch from home, dream of a day when we can actually afford a seat in those historic grandstands, and maybe, just maybe, sing along with the crowd about the sun shining bright on our home.
Run horsies run!
