Day at the Race Track

My friend Matt invited me to watch some horse racing over at the Fairmount Park Racetrack. 

Best named horse ever.

Shakespeare in the Park

This year's pick for Shakespeare in the Park at Forest Park was The Winter's Tale. Our friend Margaret got to the park during the morning and put down a massive tarp so our crew would have plenty of space to sit. The people behind us were crying their poor planning little eyes out when we arrived. Sad.

This board where they spell out the story in comic form was my favorite.

Truth, Justice, and Horseradish

I finally got up early enough on a weekend to go to a political march/save America.

After America was saved we headed to Collinsville, Illinois for the International Horseradish Festival.

They had lots of horseradishy foods to try.

We washed it all down with a sinus burning bloody mary.

There was a really interesting talk about horseradish root farming and then a demonstration on how to make the sauce.

We took home a couple of jars of the white root lightning. They were lots of t-shirts with groan inducing puns such as "it's not the size of the root its the way you grind it" and so forth.
