November 4th – Pick your omen

Pink and yellow

I have no idea what this flower is, and not even my most investigative journalism (Google’ing) can provide answers.

Speaking of bright colours, perhaps it’s an omen for the Melbourne Cup. There are probably more certain ways of disposing of money, but none of them are as adrenalin producing, even for us as horses running 3200 metres.

Sadly the field hasn’t provided me with a cerise/yellow option for the big race. Perhaps the omen is to keep my hands in my pockets.

Yeah right.

All the talk is of Fawkner (3) and Protectionist (5), but I like the lure of young Lucia Valentina (22). However no one (since Maybe Diva) can accurately make a solid prediction.

Come 3:10pm, it’s likely we’ll all throw our heads back and say “I was going to back…..”.
