I wish we'd driven closer to the track and found a spot to stop and watch the people.
There's so much good people watching to be done on Derby Day.
Not far from the University of Louisville's campus, there's this memorial statue in the center of an intersection. It was built in honor of Claudia Wadlington and Riley Lawrence, two little girls who were killed when a driver, fleeing the police, plowed into them as they were crossing the street with Claudia's mother to go get a Happy Meal. Today the little girls in the statue have their Derby/Easter hats on and a pony to dance with.
My roses haven't died yet. In fact, they're blooming beautifully.
