Location: Seattle, Washington, United States

What you have here is an old guy. In education for 30 years, started teaching elementary, ended as library and media director of community college. I've enjoyed mountain climbing, sports car rallying, was pipe major of a bagpipe band, played guitar and sang during the folk revival, walking and hiking later in life. Now fairly sedentary. Enjoy reading, esp. mysteries and fantasy, but my reading is pretty eclectic. Enjoy movies, giving Netflix a workout.

Owner's License

Word has come down from the Washington Horse Racing Commission that partners in syndicates should have an owner’s license. I wish they had told us earlier because the perks are pretty good. Unfortunately there are only a few racing days left in the meet. But our horse, Gavin Slew, can’t run this week unless the partners are licensed. So off we hied to the track, not to watch races, but to take care of this licensing business. They decided they didn’t need fingerprints but did take a photo of my physiog. The perks are free parking, free passes to the track any day, free seating in the grandstands and access to the barns after morning training sessions are over. That will be useful next year. So I guess I’m legal now.

Late word is that Spring Run, the filly, has an injured hoof. Doubtful that she will run again at Emerald Downs this year. A rest and healing will find her at Portland Meadows.
