Bourbon for Breakfast

At the Kentucky Bourbon Festival, we had a pancake breakfast with bourbon butter, bourbon syrup, and bourbon coffee. That's a lot of bourbon for breakfast.

More Barrel Rolling

And here's one of the women's teams.

Barrel Rolling

Last weekend, the barrel rolling contest was held at the Kentucky Bourbon Festival. This is one of the men's teams. It was just amazing how fast they moved with these barrels, each of which weighs 500 lbs.

Bachelor Broughan

This carriage is approximately 120-125 years old, and was originally purchased from a factory in Paris, France, by Anheuser Busch I. As the name implies, it was a unique carriage designed for the bachelor to be able to squire his date around town in discreet fashion. One of the original features was a communication system from the inside of the carriage to the driver which used funnels and tubes.

Owned and displayed (at the Highbridge Festival) by Jerry Allender of Wilmore, Ky.

This peculiar vehicle was at the Highbridge Festival last month. I never did get the story on this. Looks pretty weird to me.

Pablo is the mascot at a restaurant that we ate at a few times, in Paris, Kentucky. He's kinda creepy, isn't he?

This is one of those strange parachute things they use in elementary school gym classes. Tons of fun.

Fire truck

The Lexington Fire Department brought a truck to the picnic for the kids to play in and on. I love the gauges and dials on the side of a fire truck.

Last day of summer

Today we had the school picnic marking the official end of summer with hot dogs and time playing with friends.

I'm always fond of pictures of shadows of common things. This is at Centennial Park, in Wilmore.

Another Fountain

Not one of the three fountains that I mentioned earlier, but still a very cool one.

Seldom Rest

The Seldom Rest farm is on the road to Highbridge, Kentucky. Since I ran Cross Country in college, I just happen to know that it is almost exactly 6 miles from campus. We used to run out there and turn around at Seldom Rest for a 12 mile circuit.

There used to be another farm out there, either right next to it, or close by, called Seldom Work. Unfortunately, it's not there any more.

Choo choo

These strange black things are in front of the R.J.Corman company. If you drive past them inordinately fast, they echo back the sounds of your car to make a 'choo choo' train sound. Not that I've ever driven past there inordinately fast. I've just heard.

More reflections

The sky, and just a little bit of Highbridge, in the side of a 1957 Chevy Bel Air.

The lawn umbrella reflected in a spoon ... in case you couldn't figure out what this is. :-)

There are several very cool fountains downtown Lexington. Three that I particularly like. Here's one of them. I don't have photos of the other two, yet.

Vietnam Memorial

Downtown Lexington there's a Vietnam War Memorial, commemorating the local men and women who were KIA or MIA in Vietnam.

Farmers' Market

As I believe I've mentioned before, we're big fans of the Lexington Farmers' Market.

Lexington Courthouse

This used to be the Lexington Courthouse. They've built a new one which is far less attractive, but much larger, and so better serves the needs of the town. This building has become a museum of local history.

I've served on jury duty just once, and it was in this building.

These columns stand in front of the Paris Middle School. I'm not sure why. Perhaps someone from the area can tell us?
