Schedule out at 3 p.m. / Losing fortunes at the track

The course of seven of the next eight months of our lives* arrives this afternoon.


Have been on vacation the past week, visiting a place I haven’t been in too long (though we only sighted the Times Union Center from afar). I can totally recommend to you the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, the New York State Museum in Albany and the battlefield at Saratoga. (There’s the track at Saratoga, too, obviously, at which we awesomely randomly ran into former Wilkes-Barre and Islanders PR guy Jim Morlock; great to see him. I also messed up my perfect story about losing 10 cents at the Spa by blowing a couple of bucks on a filly in the feature.)

I think I’m technically still on vacation today, but that’s never stopped anyone before.


Edit: RIP, Toots Thielemans. (Hat tip: John Bartlett)

*-Well, yeah, I mean, whatever, we do stuff together 76 times, at least we’ll know when, etc.
