 our squash is thriving...
I love squash...
 Sunday I needed to get out of the house...
being holed up all week....
so Hubby and I went to the horse track....
 
 I love seeing our Texas flag....right next to the USA flag...
 
 I love gray horses....there aren't that many that race...
so they really stand out...
Hubby likes the simulcast racing...I like the live racing...
so he goes inside to do his betting...on tracks from all over...
I spend my time watching the live horses...enjoying their beauty...
people watching...and listening...
I saw a lot of Dad's with their kiddos...
I noticed the Dad's asking the kiddos which horse to bet on...
The boys were all about the numbers....the fastest looking horse...
The girls were all about if the horse was pretty....or the colors...
or the name of the horse...
This seems to be the same in Men and Women also....
Hubby looks at the numbers....the percentages...
where I tend to look at the horse..how it moves...
it's name...the color....
and you know what...
I think the odds are about the same either way...
the whole male female thinking starts at the beginning I think...

Happy you were able to get out and enjoy some sunshine and horses Deb. We used to go to the dog races many years ago in Iowa.

I love that yellow squash sautéed in a bit (OK a lot!) of butter seasoned with just salt and pepper. It's one of my favorite veggies in the summer.

I love a gray horse. My mother did too.

Good to get out of the house! Yesss!!!

You would like my town. Horses are a very big thing, around here. The motto of my city is Health, History and Horses. :-)

I always look for the prettiest one on the track. Girlie, I know.
And it's so true, the girl-boy thinking starts in toddler-hood. We can't seem to help ourselves.

Your squash look wonderful. Glad you got out to the races. That's always a fun time. I pick according to their names!
