Back Up Plans and Doubling Down

So with the project not taking off as quickly as I would like, the state of the economy, and given who is in charge of the country right now Josie and I have been getting a little nervous. The past couple Sunday nights in companionship inventory we have been doing some brain storming to hedge our income. Then it came to us on a trip to visit my brother in Kentucky. We have sent all three children to jockey school they have only 6 more weeks until there first race. Jack is already impressing his teacher and has been promised to ride in a race with a horse called "Snowball." We have not told him the horse full name "chance in Hell". We figure with their incomes as jockeys and then the advantage of the inside information on the races Josie will really be able to excel in her new chosen profession. We figured with her math and statistical skills she would be a natural. Josie has been spending her days learning about odds, spreads, ect. We also have a in with the local vet. So I think it is a Sure thing. I know you are all concerned with my role in the master plan. I was going to sit back and be the Hollywood Husband of Kentucky. But that went over like a lead balloon with "Lucky Losie-POO" So she handed me a pitch fork and sent me to the stables to do what I do best shovel stuff.
If any family or friend would like to invest in our sure thing please send your money orders to Lucky Loise at the Keenland Race Track in George Town Kentucky.
