5.4.19 … May the 4th be with you!

“Solvitur Ambulando” – It is solved by walking, 2019 Labyrinth Walks, World Labyrinth Day (We Walk As One At One), Eastminster Presbyterian Church-Marietta GA:

I planned my day around my World Labyrinth Day Walk and the bottom fell out of the sky at exactly 1. So my sister and I tried to walk as one at one, but instead we frolicked in the rain at one. We laughed at ourselves at one.

So did you know that Saturday May 4, 2019, is also Derby Day, Naked Gardening Day and May the Fourth Be With You/Star Wars Day?

Ideas for celebrating … Combine them! Ride a horse naked on a labyrinth in a garden wielding a light saber. Or walk naked in a garden wielding a light saber in one hand and a mint julep in the other.

May the 4th be with you!

5.4.19

Just thought these interesting…

This is about a favorite dad … Cot Campbell:

In addition to all of that, he may very well have been the No. 1 fan of the Run for the Roses.

“There was really nothing quite like it for us in the enjoyment of life,” Campbell’s widow, Anne, said Friday in a phone call. “The Derby was the ultimate goal and joy – the uber experience. Cot just loved the backstretch in the mornings. He thought being back there was marvelous.”

This sentiment prevailed every year, not just when Dogwood Stable had a contender training for the big event. But when the Campbell-managed Dogwood had such a horse, things entered another sphere.

And this

But perhaps the best in the biz, especially for the Derby, is Kentucky-based H.E. Sutton Forwarding Company. H.E. Sutton, otherwise known as “Tex Sutton”, specializes in horse transport like no other. This equine transport company founded in the 1950s moves horses around with a Boeing 727-200 flown by cargo airline Kalitta Air and configured specifically for horses. Not surprisingly, the plane’s flight logs often show it in Kentucky, one of the world’s horse centers.

“Air Horse One”, as it’s nicknamed (it literally says “First class equine air travel” on the side of the plane), is outfitted with room for up to 21 horses, fitting two or three wide. Ticket prices vary but have been quoted in the several thousands of dollars per passenger. The animals are carefully loaded into the aircraft with inflight amenities like food (hay) and drinks (water — we didn’t ask about champagne) to ensure that they arrive healthy, well-rested and relaxed. So much, in fact, are they committed to the comfort of their well-hoofed passengers that the aircraft often climbs and descends slower, and even will detour hundreds of miles out of its way to keep the flight as smooth as possible. One rep had said that flight crews will even accept long delays for the same reason. Thankfully, most horses seem to be used to it (and presumably don’t mind waiting a little longer for a smooth flight).
