Hats and Horses!

A song keeps playing in my head.  "Horses, Horses, Horses"... Meg Ryan in Sleepless In Seattle.  The reason I keep singing this jazzy little jingle is my recent attendance at the Virginia Gold Cup,  New to the scene, I felt like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman.  Surrounded by a sea of lovely hats, elaborate tables, dapper gentlemen, I savored mint juleps.  There were JRT (Jack Russell Terrier) races, as well as the 6 steeplechase races.  Vendors sold a myriad of delightful hats and woman paraded through trying on hats to ohhhs and ahhhs.  My husband donned a silly Happy Birthday hat that garnered many laughs.  We thought he might win the hat contest but alas no such luck, although many folks took his picture.   The entire event was top notch.  I was worried it would be too hoity toity, but it was nothing but fun.  Hats and horses.  Horses, Horses, Horses!
