Big Brown Captures Victory

I opened up the paper over the weekend and saw this headline–Big Brown Captures Victory. Apparently a horse named Big Brown won the Kentucky Derby. Here’s the thing. I have named my recliner, and my recliner’s name is “Big Brown.” My Big Brown of the chair variety is a leather recliner. I know, I know, it makes me seem ridiculously ancient to have a recliner, and absolutely bizarre to have named it. But the penchant goes way back. I named a tree limb in my back yard when I was a kid–the name was “Butter Ball.” I used to love to sit there and pretend I was riding a horse. And now my Big Brown has the same name as a horse. Coincidence? I don’t think so! Giddy Up!
