  1. Think maybe you should have made a deal for the tractor, Pat – would be easier on your body! Love all of the history that you are encountering along the way.


  2. It appears that you are already half way through Kentucky—very impressive. It is amazing how many nice, welcoming people you have met along the way. Interesting that Abe Lincoln’s parents wed in Springfield, KY and Abe raised his family in Springfield, IL. Wish you continued good luck.

  3. So much history, so many interesting people and so much FUN. Maybe not always for you, but always for me. Look forward to each day’s blog.


  4. The horse and carriage sign makes me wonder if you were in Amish country. I didn’t realize this part of Kentucky looked a lots like very southern Illinois. Beautiful to visit………..
