The line to make a wager at the OTB

Fortunately for me, the predicted bad weather never materialized. It was a cloudy, overcast day but that made for good driving conditions - no sun in my eyes in the early morning hours. It was so good to see the Chicago skyline once again !

Colin and I no sooner had the car emptied out and everything deposited in his apartment when he whisked me away to the OTB ( off track betting) to bet on the Kentucky Derby. Afterwards we went to Fado, an Irish Pub, for a late lunch and to join the crowd to watch the big race. Neither one of us picked the winner but it was a fun afternoon nonetheless.

We walked back home and plopped on the couch to watch the Blackhawks - when they were losing 5-1 at the end of the 2nd period, we turned the game off. Time to relax and rest up for a walk down Michigan Avenue tomorrow!
