May Day and Derby Day, what a combination. By all rights, and my original plan, it should have been a raucous celebration, but instead, it was a quiet day. It seemed entirely appropriate that jockey Calvin won yet another Derby, setting an unprecedented victory record, and that no horses were injured during the race. Kentucky Hot Browns for dinner capped off the theme of the day, even if there were no mint juleps. A quiet day can be a very good thing.
