Aw...Mondays and More

.
This Monday is sad for me. Not only does my hubby have to go back to work tomorrow after a long five day anniversary celebration. I also am sad over the outcome of the Kentucky Derby. I have watched the derby my whole life. My entire phamily watched it and many years ago we had the opportunity on the off season to visit Church Hill Downs.
I believe this graceful horse won that race. The top photo was not all over the airwaves because it shows the second place winner bumping another horse. My true thoughts on the whole process is the fact that the derby wants to please the rich masses and they never should have allowed 19 horses to run on that sloopy track. The chance of rain is 99% on any given Kentucky Derby. After the horrors at Santa Anita and the number of horses who died as a result of human greed I Understand the caution. But the fact is the second place winner ( and he will always be one in my heart) had odds of  65-1 ! Maximum Security is the fastest horse in racing. It is sad there will be no chance of a triple crown winner.
I did not get around to buying my Kentucky derby hat this year. I guess in my heart I wasn't excited about it as I have been in the past. So taking away the title from the winner calls for a black mourning hat! On this Aw....Mondays this magnificent horse Maximum Security is the winner.
Ha! This is a great Love is....Men are usually smart when it comes to matters of their wife or girlfriend and their body issues.
I like the Lord's look on our hearts rather than our bodies.

I didn't watch the race because we don't have regular television. We have Netflix and Amazon Prime. We don't take the newspaper either. We don't listen to the mainstream anything anymore.

Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

I hope your day was filled with much Awww. Big hug my friend. ♥

"Dip it in glitter and sparkle all day", that makes me smile. I didn't see the race but it sounds wrong that they took away the win and thus the Triple Crown.

LOVING that juxtaposition with you and Harrison!
Like you, watching the Kentucky Derby was appointment television. Then, when not one - but two horses fell and later lost their lives, I was sickened. Recent horrors (perfect word, Anne) at Santa Anita combine where I can't even watch in real time. Ya, I love horses. They're the unwitting victims in all this greed.

PS - On the upside, I'm loving that hat!
