Going To The Dogs
WHEN? Wednesday · September 15
WHERE? Mobile Greyhound Park
It was a day for us to "go to the dogs," "have a dog in the race," on a "dog day afternoon" and have a doggone good time!
Facilities were nice as evidenced by Mae Dean's great photography. I'm still worried about that "bronzed dog". Wendell explained the betting philosophy to Mae Dean, while I bet on lucky numbers and cute names. I only lost $17.00. Hot dogs and french fries were very cheap -- usually stadium prices outrageous.
I have to close my eyes when I drive through the tunnel in Mobile, so Wendell insisted that I ride with them rather than vice versa to our dinner destination. Their selection was perfect -- Ed's Seafood Shack -- best shrimp I have ever eaten. Almost prawns so big and delicious.
After dinner we kissed, kissed, hugged, hugged and went to our respective rooms. Got up early next a.m. and drove uneventfully home. Tired but very glad I went.

Let me (MDS) reveal once again why I am not a gambler. I lost every cent of the 28 bucks I bet on the 14 races. Nuff said.
As Pam wrote, we did not see each other the next day because she took off headed back to Jackson too early for that. We didn't hang around Tillman's corner very long ourselves. We chose to take the slow and leisurely scenic route back to Lower Alabama. You can view those photos on Flickr also at:
