I went to Churchill Downs in 1976 it is a real nice race track, is there a great horse in it this year Johnb.

I just finished watching the race Jim, it was fantastic to see such a 50-1 shot win in such a fabulous way.
My wife and I picked horses just before the off, I wish I'd had some real money on my pick (Mine The Bird), as that was the one that won.

jim davis said...

Ah 'If' such a little word, and such a big meaning.

Jim, Were you in the States in 1976 for the Bicentennial Celebrations?

Val B said...

As you know, I like the horses! For a Christmas pressie last year one of my sons bought Frank and I "a day at the races". We chose to go to Brighton and booked it for last Sunday. Premier enclosure, the Silks restaurant etc.etc. Had a fantastic day and came out about evens on the betting. Bayley went to my youngest son for the day and actually behaved himself for a change. More about him later!
While on the Sports page, up the Hammers, back into 7th place.

jim davis said...

Yes I was out there for the celebrations Johnb. At that time my sister Chris was living at Bushmans Lake in Indiana. The nearest big town was Loueville Kentucky, that is how I ended up at the racetrack there.

I'm a Chelsea supporter,my son is Hammers,but nobody's perfect

jim davis said...

A Birmingham lad said to his mate Ken," are you coming to see the Villa Saturday"? Ken replied "no I have got to go out shopping with the wife." "Do what I wouldn't stand for that, my wife tried that one on with me, and I put a stop to that immediately" "How"? said Ken. "Well she kept on at me and in the end I picked her up over my shoulder, carried her upstairs, threw her on the bed, pulled up her skirt pulled down her knickers and slapped her arse, and she never asked me again when it was that or football" "Right said Ken I'll have some of that, I will see you at the match on Saturday". Come Sunday Ken's mate said "Where were you yesterday"? "I had to go shopping with the wife" replied Ken. "Didn't you do what I told you"? 'Well yes I did" "Then what happened"? "I told her I was going to football and she said oh no your not you are comming shopping with me". I said, "No I'm not I'm going to football" "You are not she said again"" So what did you do then"? "I carried her up stairs threw her on the bed, up with her skirt down with her NBKs ( because she was a cuckooite) then I looked down at her bum and thought, Oh! Well Villa Havn'i Been Doing Too Well Lately.

yvonneh said...

Oh dear Sorry all you Chelsea supporters, chelsea should have won, you should be pleased with their performance

yvonneh said...

Oh my god. Villa have just lost to Fulham i am going off to kick the cats

jim davis said...

Oh! what a shame.

yvonneh said...

What Jim! that they lost or that I kicked the cats or are they both a shame. At least we are playing in europe, I dont know how but we are.

jim davis said...

Yvonne If Villa keep losing, and you keep kicking the cats that's fine by me.

yvonneh said...

its ok Jim, If I mention that the Villas playing , the cats leave home, they pack their bags on Fridays in case.

jim davis said...

Ok so where is Tommy? perhaps he is in Cornwall he seems to have been every other place. I'll keep my eyes open for him.

Tommy said...

I am hear Jim,just enjoying you kids having a go at each other,guess what, look how much fun you can have kissing and making up at the reunion.I know what you are up to Jim,Upset all the girls so you can make up when you see them.Now we know Grace is on the game and has her own street corner and this bondage thing we should be in for a fun night.

jim davis said...

Oh! Boy Tom I think you have put your foot in it now. Grace and her cohorts Valb, Yvonne, and maybe more will have your guts for garters. Welcome to the club.

Tommy said...

Why should you, George and Phill have all the fun.

yvonneh said...

Love the "you kids" Tom , about time you stuck your head above the parapet Tom, but be veeeerrrrryyyy careful what you say, us women are a force to be reckoned with. Definitely no hanky panky, well not much , its all said in the nicest possible way. Well that is except for Jim. George is not far behind, he is picking up Jims bad ways.

Grace said...

Just read the sports page ,football is not my cup of tea ,tho i did used to go sometimes with my Dad to Brentford been to Hurst Park horse racing,dogs at the White City sadly my only sport is Bowls now,this reunion sounds fun i dont think i will wear NBKS #####

Val B said...

Grace, I will if you will!!!

yvonneh said...

Grace and val, I will have to make a pair as I cant find any my size. Easy to do except for the gusset, and the pocket if you were wsell off if not your peice of bed sheet was carried in the leg.

jim davis said...

Far from it for me to be rude. But please girls don't spoil a fond memory. I don't mind a joke but that would be a blooming pantomime.

yvonneh said...

Oh dear, back already, we have been having so much fun. Did you have a nice holiday

jim davis said...

Go away I know you missed me, yes I had a very good time. I only went to one place where I thought the entrance fee of £5 was not worth It. But on the way out I found a £10 note in the car park. I thought It was about time I had a bit of luck. When are you and Ken going Yvonne?

yvonneh said...

Jim, was that lands end, Ken and I went there and found you had to pay so we turned round and came out, it is not that we arte mean, but I object to paying for what is essentially ours, How can someone charge us for a veiw of our coastline, I also object when caravan parks own a part of a public beach. Disgraceful.
We are going on Friday, I am hoping that the vehicle will be ok. The ot has delivered some bed sheets that we can lift Ken up the bed with, as he wont have his hospital bed with the grab rail. But we are both really looking forward to it. glad you enjoyed your holiday.

yvonneh said...

Villas playing today, hope they win

jim davis said...

No it wasn't Lands End Yvonne you do not have to pay there any more, but it has been turned into a place like a little theme park. the Lizard is better. You all take care and I hope the weather stays fine for you, oh yes and behave yourself.

Val B said...

Yvonne as long as they are navy blue we can leave it to the boys' imagination can't we?

GRACE said...

Yvonneh hope you and Ken have a lovely holiday and the weather is kind to you ,Jim will save all the news until you return and then there will be no stoppng him HA HA

yvonneh said...

Thanks Grace and Val for your good wishes I am sure we will enjoy it,
Warners are excellent and have laid on all the things we need.
\we are leaving at about 10am on Friday, after the nurse has been in.

jim davis said...

It looks like the weather is going to be good for you Yvonne. Have a good relaxing break, and can you take Valb and Grace with you please.

Grace said...

Thought you may like to know i had some sport today ,went to the dentist had a ride in his chair cost me an arm and a leg just for the ride ,was tempted to ask for a freebie then thougt he might find some thing wrong with my teeth so did,nt bother.

yvonneh said...

No chance Jim I would love to have them with me but someone has to stay and keep an eye on you, otherwise you will get out of control. Grace you should be like me put them in an envelope and send them, No pain at all.
