Attended a Derby Event Saturday. The women all donned in their spring best and hats, genuinely happy to see each lady as she arrived. Warm smiles were greeted with Mint Juleps that were a chilled perfection. Our hosts were a most interesting couple who had torn apart their historic home and restored it brick by brick themselves. Their home is a beautiful mix of 18th century and modern day. In touring through it, I felt as if I could almost hear galloping horses of a time passed and realizing that we were standing in a building that had been built while States were still being created. When the muddy race had ended and te horses were exhausted, no of us had won and noone seemed to mind. The companionship among the guests was grand.
