May 07, 2016 No Comments by

I don’t have an entrance ticket to the 1975, 101st running of the Kentucky Derby, but I was there with some friends. We climbed over the wall, made it to tunnel under the track and into the center field. We settled in and party with the masses for the afternoon. I lost about $20.00 on […]

By “Still Not Sure I Want You To Know” “Did you say Joan Rivers?” If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard that since Friday, for every second glance or double take my ticket would have paid for itself. Yes for the love of God I did see Joan Rivers on Friday. Me, […]

Terror Behind the Walls!

Oct 27, 2015 No Comments

Eastern State Penitentiary Terror Behind the Walls! Supposedly it’s one of the best in the country. It was definitely creepy, and the costumed characters outside the penitentiary walls were the best.
