I worked some overtime at work today and was able to watch all of the Cross Country phase of this weekend's Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event. I was happy. In between paying legal invoices, I jotted down notes about things I wanted to mention in my blog post...and I still have that piece of paper in the pocket of the shorts I'm still wearing...but it's going to have to wait a few days.
Our weather has been crazy. Yesterday we had a brief rainstorm and the temperature was below average. Today it was overcast and again we had below-average temperatures but not only that, some areas of the state got snow! Snow at the end of April! And the level was fairly low...6,500 feet. Too high for my neck of the woods, but only about a 2 hour drive.
On another note...I'm thinking I might like to attend the RK3DE...maybe next year. It's held at the Kentucky Horse Park, which is the same place as Breyerfest, and I have been wanting to attend Breyerfest since the first one 25 years ago and have yet to get myself out there. And I'd still like to go, but I think I'd rather go to RK3DE. Mostly the Cross Country phase. After it's done for the day, the spectators get to walk the course and get up-close views of the obstacles...I like stuff like that. One year, I got to enter the elephant yard at my local zoo to hide treats for them and thought it was the neatest thing. We'll have to see. There's a 3 star event much closer to me, but the big names are at 4 star events like Rolex. I still have lots of time to decide, though. 1 year until the next Rolex and 15 months until BF 2016.
Right now I'm watching a new cheesy giant reptile movie. Lake Placid vs Anaconda. No, I'm not kidding. Apparently they decided that after, what, 4 Lake Placid movies and at least as many Anaconda movies, nothing was left except to bring the 2 together. This one stars Robert Englund aka Freddie Kruger and Corin Nemec from the short-lived series in thw 1990s Parker Lewis Can't Lose. Apparently even Nicki Minaj has a part in it. Oh joy! I don't know how much of it I'll watch, though, since it's after 9, this movie just started and I'm getting tired.
I hope everyone is having a good weekend! Certainly better than what mine has turned out to be (and the reason why my Rolex post has to wait).
