"Of Course, Of Course" : THE WEEKEND MIX
I thought about scouring the Burning Wood archives as a safety precaution, just in case the old "horse themed" mix had been used once before. But then I decided to trust myself and let it run. I believe this is a first, and it's only happening because I didn't want to let Charlie C. down.
(It was his idea, though I admit, I like it.)
Here's to I'll Have Another and his quest for the Triple Crown.
I'm looking forward to the race on Saturday. It's brief as sporting events go, and yet, quite exciting. I just hope this colt is a fan of Patti Smith and Dion & The Belmonts.
