You know Ann, I considered going to Mammoth Caves for the day, but for some reason as I've aged, I'm just not comfortable anymore in tight confined spaces. Thankfully we went there quite a few times growing up. It's really a great place! As well, I don't think I could walk that far these days, hehe.

I do like Mill Springs too. It's such a serene place and walking around in the cemetery helps to put things into perspective. It makes me remember what I need to be appreciative of in life.

Where is this New Haven Railroad? That sounds interesting because I'm planning on taking the Stearns Railway tour once again real soon too.

Do You know about the "Zollie" tree at Mill Springs? Confederate General Felix K. Zollicoffer road his horse to where he thought were other Rebel forces and rode straight into the Fourth Kentucky Infantry, Union and was fatally wounded. The Union soldiers placed his remains near an oak tree that became known as the "Zollie" tree and it stood until it was blown down by a storm in 1995. Zollicoffer's body was later moved to Nashville. The Union won the battle and their dead were buried in individual graves, while the Confederates were interred in mass graves close to the Zollie tree.

Mornings are particularly pleasant but I shut down my outside activity a little after 12 and hope I can get in a little nap ( yeah, right) then I may go back out about 5 or so. I'm not much of a sun person anymore and definitely can't stand the heat! Lol
I like to sit outside in the early mornings, but yeah, that heat gets to me. I am really spoiled. lol
Hope you have a great day!

Bird feeder filled,grass cut and three quarters of the housework finished. What gorgeous weather we're having. I absolutely love it :)
@ Nope, really like that purple eye. Hehe. Reminds me of the dark purple dress I once had when I met Partner. Said could see right through it. Lol. Been trying to find another. Hehe.Glad you had the opportunity to get some adventure in;) Hopefully, that ticker is doing well because of all the fun...Take care.

It's nice to hear the bits of historical facts about Kentucky. I really enjoy them as well as all other interesting comments i.e. diy info. and friendly banter.
Nice day to all.

New Haven KY is outside elizabeth town ky. Google it for ride times. There's one ride that's held up by gunmen on horses . They come on board and rob the passengers --proceeds go to crusade for children. At the turnaround spot you can walk down to the local store and buy a drink and sandwich or take your own snack They have dinner train rides also. I've done the Stearns ride also. Enjoyed it !! I would like to do that again!
I've not been to Mill Springs but have heard of it. Spring Mill State Park is by Mitchell Indiana. It'd be quite the drive though. About 3 hours from owensboro or about 1 1/2 hour from Louisville . Btw, astronaut Gus Grissom is from Mitchell and there is a building at the park---in the woods, next to a pioneer village--dedicated to him and space exploration . They have a pioneer village with demonstrators , old working grist mill to buy fresh ground corn, boat rides into a cave, lodge, camping.$7 a car load, I believe

There's a corps of engineers campground near there. Wolf creek ? And also a fish hatchery where you can put a quarter in the machine and get fish food. It's been years since I've been there. Really need to go back! Kentucky has many beautiful and unique spots! Buckhorn lake is beautiful also! Natural bridge...much more!

I do buy "fake food" ! When our house was up for sale I bought a realistic blueberry pie, stuck it in the oven and turned the oven light on! I put a "loaf of homemade" bread on a platter on the counter and lit a yummy baking smell candle ! Heehee! Ambiance! Ambiance! Also ran a DVD (with very quiet music) of a mountain stream. The TV corner was too dark so the DVD supplied the needed lighting! Lol! But! I did not have a fake bird! No sirree! Wouldn't stoop that low. Heeheehee !

just thought i would check in....

has been a busy week. took a job cleaning a ladys house up for a wedding reception. been at it everyday since last Friday, nine to ten hours everyday except five on the days i work at the clinic. still not done and im beat. hubby went with me the past couple days to get a big portion done. we have made seven hundred dollars so far and she is talking like when we get it all done (hopefully by Tuesday) she would like us to come back every couple weeks to maintain it. it was really really dirty but now that its all clean im hoping we can knock it out in one day from now one and this will be a nice side job for me.

hubby is doing good at school so far.....cant believe his first semester is already half way over but he is making good grades and trying hard like i knew he would. hopefully in the fall when he goes full time, he will keep it up.:)

baby sitting two dachshunds for the next week while their mommy is out of town. we got them this afternoon and ...oh good lord! i thought my joe poodle was a goofy acting dog, he aint got nothing on these two. the cats find nothing amusing about them, but whats new there.... they always complain about everything.(smh)

my allergies are killing me!

been hitting the pool every night.... my muscles hurt soooooo bad... but i know if i stick with it, by next week i will hurt if i don't go swim.

fell asleep on the back porch again today and woke up all lobster-fied. every year.....

thinks that's all from this side of town. hope everyone else is doing well

You'll be happiest when you're kept busy today. You'll also be perfectly content if you can potter about on your toilet or garden, by yourself and tackling the chores in your own sweet time. If you're currently looking for a new hat, have another look at your wish list of how you want it to be.
