Foxfield races, here in the 'ville

Each spring and fall, there are horse races here in Albemarle County. The Foxfield Races have been around for a long time, and it is a big social event. For a little insight, see this poorly written article. Here's a tidbit:
One year I said, 'the only thing we haven't found is a toilet and a kitchen sink,' and then the next year we found a toilet and a kitchen sink," laughed Dick. [ed--"Dick" is a local lawyer, who organizes the race]

The Daytimer is running with the rescue squad today and tonight (the 24-hour shift), and tells me that the drunks are out in force, just a-drivin' and a-wreckin' something fierce. Updates when I get them. Ride the bus, people! Then you can drink as many mint juleps as you crave!
