I bet on #10 (Zandon) to win in Saturday’s Kentucky Derby which ran at 5:57pm Central Time on NBC-TV. However, 80-1 longshot Rich Strike beat out Zandon, Epicenter and spoiled my trifecta in which I also had Zandon, Epicenter and my 3rd horse (whom Rich Strike “elbowed” out of my trifecta).
Salvaging my afternoon, I had Epicenter in a single bet to SHOW… which I won.
Ooops! Meanwhile, I meant to say two words to find her (in yellow swimsuit) in the rabbit hole.
FERDIE’S DESK (May 6, 2022) — I am not sure how many words that I meant to say. I would like to add some syrup or honey to this scenario also. I thank you, God, because she is wonderfully made. Awesome are your works! Please have her ring on my doorbell right now. Amen!
So, Some recent scrolls from my CAPTAIN’S LOG:
24April 2021, Sat. 1053 hrs. >>I have not egressed the house yet. I found something in the fridge and ate. I want to relax now and watch some TV.

Now, I want to turn the TV on to find a good movie. On the ninja pute I wrote a slight intro to a post that I dropped this morning. I was trying to add a picture, but it would not crop. I took it and cropped it on my device and then uploaded it. Voila!
My brother asked me a question about me being a lightweight when it comes to martinis (meaning, a lightweight drinker):
Carl also wants to know why I post so often on social media about my ex-wife:: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10214045705109844&id=1028059611

I will take a couple of more slugs, but I am feeling much better now since I pulled the car in the yard. Moving around like that must have been a big help too. I keep taking deep breaths of oxygen to get oxygen all deep inside of my insides.

1404 hrs. >>The rich, white rancher gave the injured immigrant a loaf of bread and some water and drove him to leave on the side of the highway… for the wolves and wild animals to devour, I guess.
