I am really, really high on MS after Omaha Beach scratched on Tue. This horse has that early speed to clear and reminds me of California Chrome with his stamina. Last week I was trying to beat him because I knew OB would have cooked his goose down the backstretch in a scorching half mile. If this horse gets to take a breath down the backside, watch this little pink streak run away when they turn for home. I could not care less if it's sunny or pouring, he can run on anything, including golf balls and broken glass. He gets my largest bet Saturday. In case something goes awry, my backup bets go on Tacitus and Country House. The jockey on Tacitus is all world and owes me one from last year(Good Magic, second to Justify, was my top pick here). Note: MS and Game Winner are owned by the same people and will carry the same silks. If any horses mentioned run one-two, the Beav is going to FL for a few weeks to sharpen up my golf game. Good luck everyone, it's hard to win. That's what makes it so fun!
1. By My Standards
Dad follows up with exacta boxes of numbers of birthdays, addresses, and such. Laugh all you want, he's hit a few of those that have paid for his $5000 golf clubs over the years.

Angie just completed her first semester at her new job and is doing well.
If you don't believe in karma, I'm telling you its paying me back. For all the nonsense I've put up with over the last few years, what a major karma delivery this was. We get to the show, as I'm getting a beer, I bump into a golf buddy/old friend, Mark, he lived next to me in Todd Hall and one of my few only EKU friends ever. I tell him the 10 kick ass seats we had (Floor level section 3) and he's like...."I have front row seats, rookie." WOW! So anyway's we catch up, try to meet up soon to play some golf, blah blah guy BS, etc. Haven't seen him in at least 3 years; so I'm a crappy friend. I stay really busy as some of you know. Anyway, with about 20 min's left in the show, he texts me and says to meet him where the aisles cross. His group was dipping out and left 6 seats open. All of us took turns going up, I went up last. We had a great time. I'm not the best photographer with the phone but I did my best. This beats the ride home from the KISS concert hands down. May have killed that DMB hum out of my brain finally. Yeah right.
I was so close to the stage I scared the band, and then they quit ;)
If you didn't make this one, make the next one.
I vote to make this a yearly if not bi-yearly thing. Everyone was so cool, the crowd was into it all night, and Weezer slayed.
Ally did a spot for a Denver company a few years ago. She did really well I thought! Nice work Ally. I had to embarrass her somehow, just so we can be even ;)
You can say its a small role all you want, it's one more commercial than I've ever done.
If you went to SK until around 1994, you walked under this sign that hung above the front doors that led up to the office/second floor. How I came across this sign follows.
Since starting this company at the end of 2012, I've gotten to do some legal transactions for a few famous people: Joe Mixon of the Bengals and Karlos Dansby, who is retired, a few Reds, and a few other national celebrities and local television personalities. I've even been invited to Mr. Mixon's birthday party next month, he lives in NKY as well. What a perk!
With that said, I got contracted to do a job for a living legend. The SK sign in the photo above was taken with permission as well as permission to post, in the garage of one Mr. Troy McKinley. CTCS was lucky enough to get contracted to prepare documents and do an in home signing for Mr. and Mrs. McKinley. When I told them I went to SK as well and graduated a few years behind, they took me to the garage. I walked under that sign as I attended SK from 84-87 countless times. It was great to see someone who put Independence and Simon Kenton on the map as SK, at the time, had become the ONLY 9th region school to win a state title. Even to this day, we are still in your debt Troy. This sign was headed to the dump when they renovated SK around 94-95. The person knew Donna and Troy who had been contracted to do the removal and called and asked them if they wanted it. They got it. To this day, it's in their garage. How cool is that?
Thanks again to Donna and Troy McKinley, they were very hospitable while we were there and this was not one of our contracted clients that we work for week in and week out. This was a stroke of luck. If anyone knows what I've been through with my own class of 87 and the hell I went through with them, I deserved this. Karma is real. It works. Trust me. I'll call this some payback for me. Super, super nice people.
I don't care how much you may like your job, I like mine twice as much. I'll say it.....................................I love this job more than you love your children. I must say that is very accurate. It's a pleasure to wake up and run this show every day and I consider myself lucky for the success we have enjoyed. Winning the lottery cannot be this fun.
Jay was the brother I never had and we are barely related somehow. Not Grant County KY brother/sister marriage related, but regular Kenton county marriage related. (He would be laughing his ass off at that.)
Being a typical man who grew up in the 70's, he always put himself last. He did it right and didn't cut any corners and was robbed of his life today by a massive heart attack at home on an off day from work. Someone was there to try and help him but unfortunately Jay could not be saved. He was 53, just barely older than me. He was a Mechanical Designer with Aireconn and Pak Teem for 29 years, went to work everyday, loved his wife and kids. Quicker with a joke than I am, and I think that's where I developed my sense of humor from just being around him in my teens. Jay was funny. Very funny.
My last best friend is gone.
Everything I love in my life is taken away too soon. Must be me. This is why you cherish every day with someone you care about.
You won't have many people in your life that you will know over 40 years other than your parents and even that's if you're lucky. What a sad, sad day.
A true friend. One of the few who had my back. Now I have no one to walk with me over the suspension bridge with me to go tailgate Bengal home games, as we are seen here in 2016. Jay went with me at least 20 times over the last 6 years. Jay used to come out to my house to fish my folks ponds all time from grade school to just a few months back. Jay's bachelor party in 92 is like one of the best parties I've ever been too. Had a bad ass Regal as his first car.
I miss you brother. I think about you every day.
I still think about you every day. :`(
We have many clients now, one owns this horse, Mongolian Shopper. Since shipping from KY to CA she is unbeaten, and Christmas came early. She's 3 for 3 on the downhill turf course at SA. Congrats to the clients who jumped on board with us. These come around every couple of years. Ed's winning ticket shown above, we bet more online. Paid for Angie's CA trip while in town working for the Chargers. If Ed is your friend, you've won the lottery. I will miss you guys next month when we move.
The jinx can kill, and has. I does as it pleases. The jinx always wins and if it loses it cheats to win. We have seen the jinx and it is real, and since it stained our holy land of Rupp Arena:
UK WILL NEVER WIN ANOTHER CHAMPIONSHIP.
Jinx proved this to us during that can't lose undefeated season and killed it with one visit. Check us. Man up jinx and cancel out the bad karma, as much as we know you LOVE bad karma. Wait til it hits. It's dialing in now. 2019 still going strong.
Add "Toys R Us" to the jinx's list. Jinx, how many things/people have to go with all your bad juju? Geesh! Wait till we post them all.
Wilkats, Java Joe's, Pleasure Isle
Lazer Maze, Shakeys, UK, Reds, Chez Nora, and last but not least the nuclear bomb she dropped on CTCS, but Angie saved the day as per what she does. You know, what a friend does? Not use you.
We know stalkers need to eat, keeps her off that Greyhound home. Be patient.......can't get enough. We thought too much got to them. We all make mistakes, but some people are world record holders.
Is that the Ghostbusters theme by Ray Parker Jr. I hear somewhere?
So we have a bit of fun here at Kim M.'s expense. When we get even we'll quit. I'd say around 2055 or when we die. You know your friends are loyal when they get more upset than you do when someone's life is threatened and/or in this case, injured or killed. Read Meffordology.
Subway has a new sandwich, The Donald = rotten white bread full of baloney with a side of Russian dressing and a tiny pickle.
Wait for the other sandwiches from Subway later on this year called The KY Lispy Krispy, The Princess Diaries Flatbread, and The Cov Cath Fall special for $.67 plus .043 tax. That will be very funny to all soon, not just us.
Fall special only. Make a note.
I've been funny for years.
It's our turn and we will ride CTCS like Seabiscuit towards the sunset and that's fine with us. We found out who our friends are too, and we will be there for them come hell or high water. Loyalty may be dying but it thrives here.
Angie and Ed have been friends for around 20 years. They run CTCS jointly and are not husband and wife or bf/gf. She appreciates the attention but the email stalker needs to up their dose and move on to the next victim. He obviously has never met Ed in person. He can still bench press his tractor.
Angie has moved on and now your horrible, sexist emails may stop.
A few things here can be a little personal from time to time. Keep in mind.... CTCS is our baby. It's how we eat, it's what we love, and we really like our job. We do. We drive nice, sporty cars that are company provided and we love meeting people. We were attacked by "friends" telling lies about the owners of this company to jeopardize our status and to try and stop the growth of CTCS. Their creation. We won't forget that. And for what? We did well? We succeeded where others failed because we worked hard and dug in when everyone told us to quit?
Blaze your own trail, and you can take this to the bank:
Behind every successful person is a long line of haters.
Can't make money sitting at dad's getting bigger. DC said he needs his 15k back. They should rename Fakebook to "the old friend needs a loan network." I don't care what anyone has done, no one got asked for money more than me on Fakebook. Your friends are who you see at the least monthly. Nice to see how many idiots still use that platform. It's amazing that Fatty still uses it for phony sympathy and lies on it. Even on the fake Fakebook page he created to run his scam hasn't been updated since 2013. We'll post a screen shot later. Borrows money from friends and does not repay, says it's for starting a business and that never happens. Fatty the Plumber will scam you. Lives with his dad, has multiple bankruptcies and we will post that doc soon. Tapped out dad, had his truck repossessed for patronizing ladies of the night on Backpage instead of mailing $750 a month to keep a company detailed work truck. Be careful when you decide to tell lies about another who made a bad decision or two to pile on(right after his loan was rejected as well) ..............that "another" may decide to tell some truths about you. As we do here. We protect KY and it's consumer base. It's our job. Too bad your scam didn't work on us. We wonder here at CTCS what "lady" even with a fistful of cash would help you out with your morbid obesity. Ewww. Anyone in our circle knows he constantly hit one employee up for twenties and fifties here and there to just eat some nights. There are witnesses to this. He sexually harassed a former employee who we interviewed and went to SK. Why/how can we make that up? Everyone knows dude is a mooch. He owes money all over town and is fleecing people still today to get cash to 'feed the pigeons' in Erlanger.
Kim, did Ed ever meet someone at Ace hardware in Independence to collect some money? I believe Ed, he said you were with him and he even told you. And for the FL haters out there, no way it was a drug deal. 450 pound guys don't do drugs. Unless as Ed says, he's main-lining gravy.
Now, THIS is the guy who's word was taken over Ed's. THIS GUY. This guy. Lied his ass off and got away with it. Then again, his life is his life now, so who really won Steve?
Telling someone that they were a "bet" was about the lowest thing I have ever heard. Ed lends this guy money and he does this to him? You need to get the truth Kim, and not from a fat, lazy, deadbeat plumber. Oh, he paid Kim to be April Showers on some nudie website he said. Ed, you and Angie need to be very careful with them.
This report was made by our former employee Kim in her first three months on the job in 2015. This part is in the book Meffordology. This is never to be taken down.
I stopped by KFC today and you have to try the new meal they started called the "Nancy Kerrigan." Includes two small breasts and a battered leg. You can have them hold the leg by asking for the Floriduh Jewelie.
Which sexual position produces the ugliest children?
Ask your mother.
Talking to Grant County soccer mom is like trying to explain social media to a 70 year old.
Don't get too serious on us, we love a good laugh at anyone's expense, including ours.
Marijuana is the gateway drug to taking 45 minutes to pick out which color Gatorade you want to buy.
My girlfriend is always stealing my t-shirts and sweaters... But if I take one of her dresses, suddenly "we need to talk".
IPad, IPhone, IE, Chrome, Firefox never lie. People do. Horrible ones at that. We stand by our track record on the whole. Slapping the stalking tag on anyone but yourself is why your "gonna feel a little pinch."
He's so bald, I can see whats on his mind.
How much cocaine can Charlie Sheen do?
Enough to kill Two and a Half Men.
I've been taking Viagra for my sunburn.
It doesn't cure it but it keeps the sheets off my legs at night.
What is the difference between a drug dealer and a hooker? A hooker can wash her crack and sell it again. #choctawfizzle
You're so bald, you look like a corn dog with eyebrows.
I saw six men kicking and punching my ex-mother in law. My neighbor said ‘Are you going to help?' I said ‘No, six should be enough.'
Just asked my girlfriend what she's "burning up for dinner" and it turned out to be all of my personal belongings.
Never get into fights with ugly people, they have nothing to lose.
