Thursday, we went to Oaklawn Racetrack (it wasn't open in February except on weekends). Bob had never been to the horse races, and he was bored to death. He also thought it was quite expensive. I had fun however, betting on paper, and I ended up (on paper) $1.80 ahead when I bet $2 to show on each horse that I thought would win. I think that's pretty good. Had I bet with real money, I would have paid for the price of the program.
