Thanks for posting early, mothermark. I need to get to bed as we are leaving early in the morning! So this had to be fast.

We are headed for the Kentucky Derby, just a few days early.
Jules who has been keeping the rules for 42,000 years, has disqualified jockey Tony, but may allow Toni to ride. These horses were tired of hanging around to see what would happen, so they are out scampering around the infield - looks like they are having a great time.
Also, Jules forgot that the Derby is the Run for the Roses, and ordered 42,000 yellow daisies, and is trying to figure out what to do with them.

Gorgeous image. LOL at the 42,000 daisies. Sounds like it's time Jules was pensioned off if he's making mistakes of that sort. Hmm, what on earth can you do with 42,000 daisies. A daisy-chain making race for all the jockey's wives??

Dorothy, I love this image and the beautiful way you have presented it! Wow- classic beauty! I love the look of the wind in their manes. 42,000 yellow daisies? Sweet, just what a tea party needs! TFS

Did you get these horses for your birthday Dorothy? Did anyone tell you they might not be so easy to keep in a motor home? Oh, I get it. Wow you and Mr. Etsdas were really thinking weren't you...drop em off at the Kentucky Derby, dump a load of 42,000 daisies off at the same time to create the perfect diversion and your off, back on the road with a piece of left over birthday cake to celebrate with!
No worries! They will find a good home! I heard there was another brawl. Seems the jockeys are now fighting over who gets to keep these talented new steeds....someone just has to catch them....I'll go tell em the teapotters will do it.
I love that image! Its so wild....reminds of of Wild Horses.....yes, I like that song by the Rollin' Stones! Hee! Your card rocks! I am glad I posted early so you could come!

You probably do have to leave early to get to the Kentucky Derby with your motor home and pulling a horse trailer with 42,000 daisies sticking out the window.
Love the image and the framing paper you chose.

Get your motor runnin'
Head out on the highway
Lookin' for adventure
And whatever comes our way
Yeah Darlin' go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space
Born to be wiiiiiiilllld!
Born to be wiiiiiilllld!
Oh, sorry, Dorothy. Your wild horses were takin' me back to my rock singin' days. You 'member this song I sung and made famous?
Totally wild, cool, and rockin' card, Dorothy! The only problem with wild horses is that they ain't trained to run a race, so ya best be prepared for these wild ones be headin' well off the Derby track. I hope they don't bring out the wild in Guardino the Palomino....
