Jim Gaffney: 1935 - 2010

So after reading everything I can find I can clearly see that it wasn't just me. As a huge Secretariat fan, I felt that getting an opportunity to meet Jim Gaffney was one of the highlights of my life. His kindness and love of all things Secretariat in particular and animals in general came through in everything he did. You couldn't help but feel uplifted after talking to him because he was simply one of the most optimistic, cheerful people I have ever known.
Apparently many, many people felt as I did.
I will miss his friendship so much and hope he knew that so many people were pulling for him.
I also hope that Secretariat was waiting at the gate for him, with his saddle on, ready to take him the rest of the way.
God bless you Jimmy.
Thanks for everything.
Love always, PG

Tony Snow 1955-2008

Tony Snow passed away from cancer early this morning.
In an interview with David Gregory he said"

"God put us on earth to help each other."
As his wife noted, Tony is a glass 3/4 full guy.
He will be missed by many especially his wife and children

"When you die, you graduate," Snow told Gregory.

Happy Graduation Day.

Important events on this day in history

On this day in 1980 the Polish communist government agreed to the demands of the striking workers in the Gdansk shipyard. Workers would have the right to organize freely and independently.

As anniversaries go, I think that one is more important than Diana.....

So the 'riddle' on the window in the lounge has been solved.
Our next Horse Show on Sunday, June 24 will have DOUBLE POINTS!
This should really open up the standings for the season.
We'll find out who wins each division on the last Saturday of June.

(Be honest. You were starting to wonder about those notes weren't you?)
