After slogging through most of a week at work and still feeling awful about our horrific outing at Kelly's Ford the weekend prior I did my usual stop at the mailbox before turning on to my driveway. Inside was a manilla envelope from Kelly's Ford. My first thought and I admit uncharitable thought, was that it was a bill for not taking all the shavings out of Fox's temporary stall. At which point I was thinking they could stick it.
Instead I opened up the envelope to find 2 fourth place team ribbons. I burst out laughing so hard that Superhubs poked his head in from the livingroom. These could not possible be ours. You don't get ribbons when there is an alphabet next to where your super low score should be.
But apparently and unbeknownst to me when I entered at KF I was automatically put on a team and even though I retired, the rest of my teammates did fairly well and we placed 4th! Which entitles my crazy donkey in a red thoroughbred's disguise to legitamate ribbons!
So a little bit of a bright spot in an otherwise bleak weekend. Keep it between the flags everyone, you might get stealth ribbons!
