Spending most of the weekend with the family celebrating the big anniversary. It is cool here and kind of dreary with low clouds.

Sunday morning at the horse camp. As usual everyone but me is packing up and getting ready to leave. Soon I will be all by myself again.

Dutchie has adjusted quickly, and she is right back home here with plenty of roaming room. I was at the computer and glanced out the window where she was struggling to stay in a...

Today was a decent drive from Paducah to Shepherdsville, Kentucky. About 15 miles south of Louisville. Maybe 45 minutes to the folks place. Now that I got here, they tell me the place is completely booked for the weekend. So I have to find another place tomorrow, then move the next day.

Dutchie stayed out through th...

The campground is nice. Pretty quiet for being next to PADUCAH INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY. Today they are having a funny car event, dragsters. Every once in a while there is a loud roar that lasts a few seco...

This morning I was in no hurry to get out on the road ASAP. It was going to be 4 hours at the most. Still, I strapped in Red Rover last night just to be ready. I did break my rule and let Dutchie out the morning of MOVING DAY. I figured I could get her when needed. Normally she goes out IMMEDIATELY, then comes in maybe 2 hours later, knowing Fluff has had first dibbs and should be gone. In reality, Fluff makes a couple of quick returns to the smorgasbord.
