Travers 2006

Wednesday, August 30th, 2006 · 2 Comments

Dr. Pleasure delivered. As I (almost) predicted last week, Dr. Pleasure finished in 3rd at Saturday’s 147th running of the $1 million Travers Stakes.

A Hacksaw & A Dream

Saturday, August 19th, 2006 · Comments Off on A Hacksaw & A Dream

The joys of home ownership never seem to end. Last week while cleaning the entire house before Jen got home from work (mission accomplished), I bumped the vacuum cleaner into the U-ring pipe in our upstairs bathroom sink.
