Escape from the Dust Bowl

A couple of years ago, my kids heckled me into submission: Give up my flimsy flip-phone and get an iPhone!

Needless to say, once iTechnology was in my fat fingers, my computer keyboard idled.  Cobwebs and dirt and dust began to collect.  It became its own biosphere as I became more and more enamored with my iPhone.  Who needs to write a blog when you have Angry Birds, Free Cell, Twitter, Viral Videos, and Grumpy Cat Memes right at your finger tips, 24/7?

But today seems like a good day to dust off the keyboard and exceed the 140 character Twitter limitation because there is much ado:

  • Arkansas Derby featuring the scary good American Pharoah
  • Texas Rangers Home Opener
  • Game of Thrones, Season 5 Premiere
  • Lone Star Park 19th Spring Thoroughbred Season opens
This evening, Post Parade is off to Lone Star Park to attend Donna Keen's Remember Me Rescue Celebrity Fundraiser and Gala to benefit her retired racehorse program.  Hall of Fame trainer, Jack Van Berg of Alysheba fame will be there and Jockey/Mom-to-be Rosie Napravnik will be the keynote speaker.

And I'll be there, armed with a camera, pen and paper an iPhone.

Welcome back to the bloggersphere! Wish I could get so inspired :-)

Thanks, Val! I've missed it. I've had a lot to say the past couple of years yet the blog and the associated computer keyboard became unattainable. Sounds rather poetic ... (I won't go into some unnamed "child" that hijacked my Google account and passwords!)
