More ZZZZZZZs are elusive. About time the dog got back from the tree, the roosters decided to tell me it was almost daylight. It is good to see you back. I hope all is well with you and yours.

Good to see you as well AW. I'm doing very well, thank you. I took a little sabbatical and had quite a bit of fun along the way. Been trying to go places I've either not been before, or places I've not been to in ages. The weather has been so nice and I just couldn't justify sitting here day in and day out typing on Topix, hehe. I'd pop in from time to time, but made much rarer appearances than usual. I just didn't have much to say for some reason, LOL. I get that way sometimes.

I've also been taking some small road/day trips and have been spending a lot of time with my beloved critters, particularly the new feather-head parrot I got a couple of months ago. Life is good on my side of the rock anyway. God has blessed me and I have no complaints.

How about you? Things going well? I'm sure you're staying busy, you always do, hehe!!

During the next four weeks you'll be very wrapped up in your topix and long-term ambitions. This will be your chance to streak ahead of everyone else and to show off some of your butt, so don't worry about being modest or not blowing your own trumpet. If you can't sell yourself between now and this time next month, you'll really have missed the boat.

@nope. Sounds like you are having a great summer! I love going around to different state parks etc! Love the New Haven railroad! Mammoth Cave...Buckhorn state resort Park. Barkley Lake.. And can't forget Indianas Spring Mill State Park and all the southern indiana caves! Some of the county fairs are starting up and I enjoy meandering around those during the day before the huge crowd at night !
Several years ago while standing in our tree lined driveway a cockatiel suddenly took a dive at me and landed on my arm! It loved to be hand fed and would walk around on my shoulders. It was particularly fond of blond haired women so we figured there was a blond haired woman that was missing her beloved pet. Never did find her and we finally sold the bird.

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 don't have a magic broom but I've often dreamed about having a magic baseboard that at the touch of a button, lifts up and sucks all the floor debris across the floor and down the "hatch" ! Lol so AW, if you run across that be sure to let me know!! Lol

Everyone have a wonderful day!

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.

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

Don't forget about Carter Caves towards the West from Vanceburg. Only about 40 miles from there. Full camping, No Lodge last time I was there but cabins I think. Great big cavernous opening on one cave but don't be fooled. On in there is one call "Fat man's Squeeze" (unless I am confusing that with Mammoth Cave)

Have Fun!
