Pat Day Bobble Head

Mary had a Pat Day Bobble Head from a special promotion several years ago at Churchill Downs. She carefully packed it in her purse and took it with us on Wednesday. Pat autographed it for her. We had a fun day!
Today, (Friday) is the running of the Kentucky Oaks, "The Race for Fillies." Everyone attending is encouraged to wear pink in support of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer research and education organization. Churchill Downs will donate $1 for every person attending toda's Oaks.

We Were "Winners"

Mary and I didn't win at the horse races, but we did "win" with the $10 grab bags and at the silent auction bidding on Beijo purses at "The Winning Purse" luncheon. The change purse was in my favor gift bag.

Susan Handley founder and designer of Beijo handbags was at the event. My "winning purse" is autographed by Susan. Beijo was one of the corporate sponsors and many of the purses were donated by Louisville-area sales reps.
By the way, Mary, a Kentucky Wildcat fan, is thrilled with her Kentucky blue purse!
