I have just taken a new job in Great Falls, Montana. A new state and new areas to explore.

22 days later, I am back in Derby City / Falls City / L-Ville / Louisville.
The trip has gone by very quickly. If needed, I could do it over and over. Just slow down even more, spend a few days here and there. Do not forget, I enjoy cruising. I can do it for many hours and enjoy it. Recently I have backed off. But I still want to get a few quality hours in on a daily basis.
Last night I stayed in MT VERNON. Illinois. Best known for being an intersection of two major freeways.
Today I tried to play golf, even though I was close to home and almost there. Everything was packed. The HOLIDAY you know. I had gotten used to wide open courses as I cruised the wide open spaces the last couple weeks.
I drove 18 miles out of my way checking out a course in ENGLISH, INDIANA. Packed. I followed the directions of the GPS and it lead me to another golf course chained up and shut down, for some time it appeared. (The previous day it lead me far out into corn fields in Illinois, one lane roads in a canyon of corn. Lead me out then just abandoned me. One minute it was leading me to a specific golf course, then suddenly it was just telling me exactly where I was way out in all that corn. No mention of any golf course. I tried it again with another golf course, same thing happened. Corn City.)
No golf that afternoon, but I saw some interesting cobs. And it was a nice afternoon for a ride.
So I gave up on golf
Turned in the car a couple hours early, now back in downtown Prospect, KY. A beautiful Holiday Monday. We spent a good part of the afternoon watching a robins nest outside the kitchen window. There were 3 babies in it, but they were mature and were OUTTA THERE today. So we sat and watched the progress of the kids as they hopped around the immediate area and tested their wings.
OK. I got a ticket to Dutch. Fly all day to get there Thursday. A rare opportunity to fly it in one day versus an all night deal. At least this is the plan as of now.
I can GUARANTEE YOU this will be an interesting week.
After having been babbling here for 5+ years, I will be making not one, but TWO monster announcements. The status of the blog is at stake.
