End of hiatus

It has been a long month. It's also been a short month.

You know how it goes--sometimes when there's too much to do in a week or a month, it seems to take forever when it's happening, but then seems to have flown by after it's over. That was my November. Three different writing deadlines that overlapped Breeders' Cup and Keeneland November.

Then came the fun part--the birth of my first grandson Eli on November 13 (adorable photo above). That, of course, required a visit to Chicago to get to know the little guy.

Suddenly the month is almost gone and I've posted nothing to this blog. Somehow I trust no one has lost any sleep over that. I haven't.

But I should have time now to resume posting on a more regular basis. Right now I'm looking forward to the running of today's Clark Handicap at Churchill. That race might well resolve the contest for champion older male with Macho Again, Einstein and Bullsbay in the field. And for whom do you vote if Blame beats all three of them? Gio Ponti might have something to say about that.

Back to work!
