I'm glad to hear that Utchie isn't in any trouble about the bet. But when I saw the horse's name, it was easy to understand why he did it. Under the circumstances I don't think you'd be upset with him, Donna.
Got a brief call from Groucho. The party lasted into the wee hours but a great time was had by all. Franklin was asked to play during the award ceremony and got a standing ovation for his performance of "My Old Kentucky Home". The 160,000+ attendees loved it so much that nobody sang while he played!
This time the barn cats joined the party and Groucho said they brought some primo - top - of - the - line catnip. The festivities really took off when Nelson started his square dance calling, every horse, barn cat, and Catmobile kitty was up dancing. Sparkler had them in awe of her Scottish dancing moves. Pinot, Cassie, Chels, Groucho, and Franklin had a conference with the barn cats. Plans are being made for the barn cats to join in on a Catmobile trip.
After their naps, UtchieB is treating the crew to dinner. Groucho said they all are very excited that his horse placed but he and his cousin will discuss reporting his winnings to the IRS when they get home. No word on when that might be.
