I decided to look ahead, to take my mind off this blazing hot weather. Right now they are saying our temperature is 99 degrees with a heat index of 112. Probably be a good day to wash our car if I had any fireproof rags. I went to the mailbox a little earlier (long walk out to the end of our drive) and one of my shoes melted before I could make it back. Well, maybe not, but it was HOT, I tell ya!
Kate darlin’ and meself have our 1-year anniversary coming up on Sunday the 8th, and we have reservations at the Derby Dinner Playhouse to see Rogers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella”. We’ve had a wonderful year and look forward to many more to come. We enjoy doing many of the same things, and we’ve had many fine adventures along the way. As you may have observed, we took a number of excursions the first few months after we got married, and we always referred to them as ‘honeymoons’. Lotsa fun! We’ll be travelling to Clarksville, Indiana, for the dinner playhouse thing – not so far away, it’s across the river from Louisville, and I’m sure we’ll have a big time.
The Kentucky State Fair is coming up in a few weeks, to be held at the fairgrounds in Louisville. It *may* be necessary for us to go – there are rumors of festival food and ‘old folk’ rides. Maybe we can get on the carousel or the ferris wheel, catch a breeze or maybe a brass ring.
This coming weekend there are big doings in the Cincinnati area, including the “Goettafest”. Well, you may ask, what the heck is “Goetta”. Apparently it’s some kind of locally famous sausage made by the Glier family of meatpackers, and they have a couple of festivals during the year, spring and summer, to bring in the tourists. Not sure we’ll make it to the one this weekend, maybe next spring.
Also, I met a fellow down at the coffee shop and we were swapping stories about our mutual interests in Civil War stuff and re-enactment sites, battlegrounds, etc. He was saying that he enjoys going to the Lexington, Virginia area for the historical sites there and for the fall foliage. Apparently the middle of October is a good time to go for lots of fall color. So, we’re thinking we might invite he and his wife over, get better acquainted, and possibly hook up with them for a trip to that part of the world. I do love those fall foliage photo opportunities!
So, we’ll see how it goes with our future adventures, and for now, we’ll just try to keep cool, maybe just hibernate indoors for the hottest part of the day.
Come see us, ya hear? 🙂
