Happy Early Birthday to Tracy. Way back in our Girl Scout days, our troop took a field trip to Kentucky Down Under near Bowling Green. Tracy was sick and couldn't go. So, when I asked her what she wanted for her 27th birthday, she said she wanted to go to KDU. Her wish was granted yesterday.

Our temperatures were in the high 80's and mid 90's. We were the only ones in the park for a while and the other brave souls showed up; 2 or 3 other families...that's it!

This is a Paupan Frogmouth - betcha didn't know that! Kinda evil looking. And, yes, it's a bird.

Tracy took every opportunity to pet whatever they let her pet.

four of the different sheep they had on display...I bet they were hot!!

They asked for volunteers so I encouraged Tracy to join the fun. There were 4 of them and hers was the slowest eater.

And, when will she ever get another chance to milk a cow? Her name was Sugar, by the way.

No explanation needed...and he had 3 horns too!

Down Under Kentucky Down Under. This cave was discovered by a 13 year old girl.

After the park we headed to a scrapbook store in Glasgow, KY. On the way there we saw these giant roosters. On the way back we stopped for a photo op. There were 4 of these - 2 on each side of the road.
Thanks for stopping by!

When the bankruptcy trustee released all of our assets we knew we had to have the biggest yard sale ever! Well, we did that today. At one point, you couldn't fit any more people inside our 2 car garage.
There were rows of tables making 4 walkways...and just tons of women!
The sale was a huge success and I'd like to thank a few key people. Karen helped me get ready and came early this morning and spent the whole day working a yard sale that was not hers. AND she brought most of the tables. Tracy, who spent the past few weeks helping to sort, bag and price the merchandise from her scrapbook store. Barb, loaned us a great ladder and a collapse-able canopy to help us stay out of the sun (never got it set up...we couldn't figure it out). All of the friends and acquaintances who passed the word around and also came back for seconds and thirds.

It was exhausting. We're glad it's over. And, yes, there is still some merchandise left. All in all, it was a HUGE success!

Thanks for stopping by.
