It's Steeplechase time once again here in Aiken, SC! Where the horses fly! I had a wonderful time this year attending what they call the "tent" party. It is situated right at the finish line. I was told there were a total of
1,000 tickets for this year, and I am pretty sure they sold out. Our local newspaper said that there were at least 30,000 spectators. If you didn't know, it is one of the things that should be on your bucket list. My nephews agreed. I was lucky enough to be escorted by two of my nephews, Rick and Rob (look for cowboy hats). When we arrived, there were probably 400 people already in the tent, and having a lot of fun. I had to laugh, during lunch there was a woman seated next to me. She asked a lot of questions of the three of us. I leaned over and said to her, "they are my nephews, visiting me." She said, "OH!" "I was wondering, I mean, you are pretty, but not that pretty to have two young men!" Haahahaha, that just made me laugh out loud! WOW! ;O
I tried to pick out the photographs that made me laugh, a little… Make sure you look for the poor jockey who has something protruding. I just have to wonder if it was his horse that put that there. Don't worry, you will know the photograph when you see it! If you would like to view the entire gallery (seven pages) click on the photograph below. It will take you to another page where you need to click ONCE more on the photograph to see the entire gallery. If you would like a large view, look for the word "slideshow" at the top right of your screen.
So, are you ready to go to the Steeplechase? Let's go! I hope you have fun, and enjoy what I see in some of these
photographs. I personally, shouldn't make any comments. :)
