At The Races...
On My Birthday & In Comic Books!
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3912 -     Yesterday I blogged that July 24th was my Birthday, and that I was off to the races!
Well... My wife & youngest son joined me on this little adventure, and we had a great time at the Del Mar Racetrack!
Usually when I attend the Racetrack I win the first few races and then proceed to give the winnings back and a little more, the rest of the day...
Well, yesterday I won 5 out of the 8 races, ending with the 8th and final race!   That was a good day at the races for me!
Oh, and Tina won 4 out of the 8 races, so she was pleased also!
My youngest son, Vinnie, had never been to the racetrack before, so it was a new experience for him.
We had half price hot dogs & beer & soda for the day, and then at the end... We went to the Asian Buffet in Vista.  
Not a bad day at all to celebrate my birthday!
Oh... And the connection of the Racetrack to Comic Books???
The photo at the top of this column shows Strange Sports Stories issue #2 from Nov/Dec 1973 with a dinosaur at the horse races! 
Plus there are several more horses / horse race covers to be found at the Grand Comics Database!  Can you find them?  Try Fury, Mr. Ed, National Velvet, just to name a few!
For more photos from yesterday's trip, see this special photo album at my Facebook Fan Page!

  Just In Case You Forgot How To...
 Yumm.... Food!
 Both Tina and I Were Winners For the Day!
