Post July 4th, and Sunday Sign
Finally getting around to posting. I have wanted to and I have thought about all of you but.........this week has been so busy and I must apologize if I have not gotten around to commenting on your blogs. I am in the process of catching up. Slow but sure!
I do hope everyone had a good 4th of July. Things were booming around here. I am always hoping that folks will soon run out of things that go boom and all those other noises. It scares my dog and cats half to death. Actually I think the dog is getting a little more used to it after all these years. Poor thing shakes in fear like he does when he goes to the groomer or the vet when things get REALLY loud. They do tend to get really loud as we live near a couple of places that had fireworks. One of my neighbors had some loud ones too. I've never bought fireworks before other than firecrackers. I had a few firecrackers that I had had since the 70's and I gave them to him. He said he had bought some dynamite, but I don't know if he really did or if he was kidding. I mean you can't really buy dynamite can you?? He blew up a guitar and the pieces are still laying over there by his front porch. Don't ask me why he blew up a guitar. As Ralph would say, "Adult beverages were involved." Guess we're lucky that was all he blew up. I picked up all kinds of cardboard bits and those long red wires off my lawn the next day. His lawn remains covered. He and his girlfriend went to TN to get married and should have gotten married today. I have been feeding their animals for them. (dog and cat). They have a beautiful Angora cat. I must get a picture of that darling thing! He is so pretty and sweet and fat! Pretty, sweet, and fat!! Does that fit any of you all out there?? I fit the last one for sure!!!
They always had a big fireworks show on the lake at the boat club, but with the lake down that is no more. I'll be really surprised if the boat club lasts. So many people have taken their boats out. Another neighbor was down from Dayton and she said there was no room down there now and it was so hard to get your boat out. She said her depth finder only listed it as being 6 feet deep and she said, "When it's only 6 feet you KNOW your propeller is so close to the bottom!!" They just eased it out and then once you get out to the main lake you are fine. There's lots of water there. She sold her boat while she was here. She is doubting the club will last too. If it were only going to be for a year or two they'd probably be okay but they are saying it'll be 7 years before the dam is fixed. Time will tell if they make it or not.
While she was in this past week we managed to get out and do some fun things. We went to Cumberland Falls one day and ate at the Lure Lodge there. We went to Monticello and ate at a restaurant that had a buffet with the BEST fried catfish ever!! It was just perfect! Very lightly breaded, fried just right, and not one bit greasy, and delicious!! Another place I'll have to go back to!! We also did some driving on the back roads and enjoyed the scenery. We really had a lot of fun.
I'm hoping I'll get to have another adventure on Monday if it all works out. My cousin and I are planning to go back to the places we lived when we were growing up. I do hope it works out! If it does (everybody CROSS THOSE FINGERS NOW) I'll have LOTS of pictures to share.
