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

UK had a close call for sure. That truck driver did good. A guy I worked with years ago was killed by a wrong way driver. He just pulled out from behind a truck on a multi-lane interstate to pass and another car was right there coming his way. You never know when your time has come. Glad to hear UK is still with us. Personally, I would like to see one of those 70 mph roundabouts over here. Set up a couple cameras and sit back. REALITY TV!
It was a beautiful day in Louisville Thursday. Had to golf, and I did. It has been one year now that I have been in Louisville. I have been trying to play all the golf courses that I used to play MANY years ago. I knocked an odd one off that list today...Shawnee. It is on the far side of the OTHER side of town. Along the Ohio River. Because it was so far away, I usually played other courses closer. It has been at least 20 years. My memories of the course were different than what I saw today. I thought it was a bunch of holes back and forth along each other. WRONG. There are a LOT of trees, many of which I met personally today. The course is bisected by I-64, a major interstate. It crosses as it turns into The New Albany Bridge, a big Ohio River Bridge.
Shortly after I started I saw a group of jets pass by at a low altitude. There is a big show here in town this weekend, Thunder Over Louisville. A big air show downtown over the river Saturday afternoon, then it turns into lotsa fireworks after dark. Obviously these jets were in town early for practice or just a warm up for the locals. They buzzed downtown most of the afternoon, and they were over Shawnee Park constantly. Only after I looked later at a photo I took could I see for sure they were The Blue Angels. Pretty cool to see so close.
The course was OK. But it was hard against The Ohio River, which I found interesting. The back nine holes had obviously been flooded recently, I am sure it was the river overflowing. At one point a tug pushing a dozen barges came by, then pulled into the shore just a hundred feet away. I was so close I saw a few workers hammering at something between a couple of barges. All I know is that I left them behind as I played on.
The high point was #18, where I hit a 30 foot putt for a par.
Yesterday I dealt with New Jersey. I had gotten a piece of mail regarding my not paying toll in New Jersey a month ago. It said I owed them $2.90 for toll, and $50.00 administration fee. Before I got too pissed off I saw that most of the notice I got showed you how to dispute the charge of 50. So I did. They gave me three lines of space, and said to be detailed. I told them to “see attached” and gave them a page and a half. Hope they appreciate the local jargon I used.
Last big hurdle with LEGGS is registration. Now I hear they want to inspect the RV first. OH, and now I see they want signatures notarized on the title. Now that they are already signed. How can anything be done nowadays without notarizing? I have been taking my stuff over to the RV a few times, planning on being fully (not fooly) packed by the 26th.
Will watch a lot of THE MASTERS golf tournament this weekend as I pack up.
