Dammit - I can't get back into the last post to edit it.  [livejournal.com profile] nsingmanfigured it out, it's Steve Cauthen - or as I will always know him Stevie Cauthen -  best known as the youngest Jockey to ever win the Triple Crown, riding Affirmed in 1978.  Also the LAST jockey to ever win the Triple Crown.   He owns a farm and training facility known as Dreamfields in his hometown of Verona, Kentucky.  I was so fascinated with him when he won the Triple Crown - he wasn't much older than me and for many years he figured prominently in my girlish fantasies. 

[livejournal.com profile] smiteboygot the other post - Boris Becker.  

GREAT LEGS!  At seconds 1:04 thru 1:06 you get to see that first victory dance.  As I mentioned, I watched it with my best friend, who was a huge tennis fan. I'd never cared for it much, but I followed Boris. Who wouldn't? He was sunshiny-looking. 

Before I go any further - here's a Happy Birthday shoutout to [livejournal.com profile] warrior_priest.  What a great birthday Kel, to spend it back in your hometown after all this time!

It was 14 years ago today that the world watched the white Bronco crawl down the freeway. Hard to believe so much time has passed. I remember listening to the O.J. verdict sitting in my car after a shift at the phone company. I think it was my last day of work there.  That sparks some very bittersweet memories. Three months later, Scarlett was conceived. 

It's going to be a beautiful day here today!!  Mid to upper seventies, despite the glaring sunlight. Those temperatures always make me happy.  I'm cooking up a new idea for the grill - I'm going to try it out tonight.  I have a brand new cute little mini-grill that I'm going to take to Brent's house. I'm thinking if I cook the chicken on low heat in a skillet with lots of liquid it will steam and stay nice and moist, then throw it on the grill to finish it off - get those black marks and that yummy charcoal taste without drying it out.  I hope it works. 

I took Scarlett to Junior Conservation Camp last night.  It's at a very nice Conference Center in the woods about 45 minutes from here. I KNOW she's going to have a fabulous time, and I saw one of my closest co-workers there. I didn't know she was going to be a leader at the camp, but it makes good sense.  She loves kids, and has a soft spot for Scarlett so I have absolutely NO worries, because I know Karen will look after her.  Can't wait to hear about it when she gets home.

I was watching the Knicks in the NBA Finals and was upset that they interrupted the game for a non-high speed car chase.

And I was upset that my first name was being mentioned all over the TV in association with this guy.

Thanks for naming me after him mom.

:)

Poor mom. She was doing a great thing at the time.
