worth doing

Nothing worth doing is completed in our lifetime,Therefore, we are saved by hope.Nothing true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history;Therefore, we are saved by faith.Nothing we do, however virtuous, can be accomplished alone.Therefore, we are saved by love.No virtuous act is quite as virtuous from the standpoint of our friend or foe as from our own;Therefore, we are saved by the final form of love, which is forgiveness."

Angel Quest

Angel was in the 4th race last night - he came in last. K'man still wants to buy him back and send him to the farm for a little layout. He wants to keep him as a 6000 claimer- I don't think it's a bad idea, but I think he'll just get claimed again, after K goes to the expense of givng him a turn-out. The point is probably moot, I don't think the new owner is willing to cut his losses and let K buy him for what he is now worth. The only real money he's made since his comeback was for K in his first race. And that's the race he got claimed. O, well. We'll see what happens.

Good morning! I got a statement from social security this weekend telling me how much I should get if I retire at 62, 65, or 70. And I realized how close I am to retirement. I moved back to Ft.L 9 years ago, in less time than that I can retire. Where does the time go.

I was checking the blogger profile match list thing-y. I can't believe it no one else on this blog site has Summer of '42 as a favorite book. Does anyone here have a sense of humor??? It has to be the funniest book I ever read. Never saw the movie, so can't pass judgement on that. Please someone tell me a funnier book. I could use the laugh.
