The other day Camille and Honey stopped by. Honey bounded in the door and went immediately to the dog biscuit box; that's our routine now. Sometimes she helps herself, but this time waited politely for a treat and of course Bessie got one too. Camille and I went to sit outside, accompanied by our girls. When I moved up here, I'd brought a lot of plants from the old house and in amongst them were some ornamental strawberries, tasteless but pretty. They're full of little red berries right now. For some reason (and who knows what dogs think), Honey went around plucking off berries and spitting them out on the deck. She never tried to eat one, but she obviously didn't like them on the plant.
Gary Stevens took the lead on Oxbow at the running of the Preakness yesterday and ruined Orb's chance at trying for the Triple Crown. My Lucky Day (my bet) came in second. The Belmont Stakes will run on June 8.
Horsepower of another sort won Jimmie Johnson a million dollars in the All-Star NASCAR race.
