I was disheartened when reading the Pimlico Race Track's additional rules for what one could and could not bring into the Grandstand in 2013. As a result of the Boston Marathon bombings, security was even tighter than usual and this resulted in the additional request that race-goers refrain from bringing cameras with detachable lenses. My camera is such a camera, and many of the best photographs I took in the last few years were only possible with a zoom lens so the fact that I couldn't bring it was a bit of a bummer. I simply used the camera that my father brought (which my mother initially purchased in 2006 for our Europe trip, which I basically stole for that trip's entire duration). Usually B. and D. would come to Black Eyed Susan Day, but B. was held up with copious last minute demands on a book she's working on, so in her stead it was D. and R., a long ago neighbor of us all (us all = my family and B. and D.), who came. B. was usually in charge of putting together a collection of snacks for us to enjoy in lieu of the slightly overpriced and questionably tasty food offerings of the Pimlico race track, but with her busy schedule that task fell to me. I was happy to take it on and that first day I made two kinds of sandwiches: turkey, salami, brie with whole grain mustard on some version of whole wheat bread; and ham and cheddar cheese with pickles and mayo. I also packed cherries, tangerines and a few other treats. Below is a turkey brie salami sandwich.
