Walking in Pittsburgh

Following my horse theme of the day: MK and I were walking the dog and discovered a disturbing, and disemboweled, stuffed horse in a tree. A large stuffed horse, a child's toy, or not, tossed up in a tree where it hung like a pall. Another passerby stopped and asked us if it was real. Depending on what you mean by 'real', then yes, or no. It's not Flicka up there because Flicka weighs 1200 pounds, but it is a Flicka dummy with its innards showing.
It was disappeared by the next day.

well that is WEIRD!!!

a friend of mine was just telling me that i have to go to see the horses race at hollywood park. i might just do it. i know zip about horses, but it might be nice to just go check them out. i am not really big in to gambling, but might wager $20 if a name sounds too good to pass up. :)

and i hear they have hot dogs and booze.

I've never bet on a horse race, mostly because I used to have a gambling problem. Couldn't watch a football game and not have money on it. Thankfully my bookie died (of old age) and the guy who took over for him was a jerk, so I quit gambling.
But that all said, horse races are fun! Actually, horses are fun. Every once in awhile MK and I go riding (pay at a stables) and then we both want our own horses :) Also explains why my nickname for her is 'My Little Pony' ;)
